Season 2 – Episode 3

What stays, what goes?

With Philippe Perilliat from France

Philippe shares with Matt and Jim a bit about the growth of the evangelical church in France, his personal experiences of planting churches and why every church should be considering the need to plant a new fellowship or support others to do so.

France Philippe, with his wife Marie Christine are heavily involved in the work of the local church. Their vision is for evangelism and to see the church grow through new converts. Philippe and Marie Christine serve in Aix en Provence, where a new church has been planted, work among students has developed and a regional church planting training centre has been established.

“I remember when I became a Christian, I met my first group of Christians, it was the first time in my life. I couldn’t understand anything of what they were saying, of their culture, even when they were sharing the Bible, but I could see through their lives that they had something I hadn’t – and this testimony is very powerful ” – Philippe Perilliat, GLO, France
