The following is a description of a ministry project of Impact France in collaboration with the CAEF.
Nick and Annie VanWingerden (pictured above with their children Crystelle, Micah, Chloe and Wesley) have been serving CAEF churches and ministry partners in Grenoble since 2008. In 2018, after seven years of directing the Foyer Évangélique Universitaire on the edge of the University of Grenoble campus in partnership with Aurélien and Chloe Lang (also with Impact France), the two couples took on a new adventure: planting the Grenoble East Church. This vibrant church is particularly attractive for young couples and families. One priority in the coming years will be to develop church-based, Scripture-saturated, Christ-oriented training resources for couples and parents, both churched and unchurched. We believe that the gospel transforms families, and that transformed families (the pillars of healthy churches and communities) will play an essential role in God’s saving purposes for France in the 21st century.
