What the Mission Trip Will Be Like
This trip will be up to four weeks in length and will require participants to be well equipped in the French language. This is the fifth mission trip to Nantes and will involve coordinating a Vacation Bible school, distributing tracts, manual labor on Church facilities, and some research of the Reformation in France.
France has had a rich Christian history that has been largely forgotten or is no longer viewed with thankfulness by her residents. Many would today label France a "post-Christian" nation that has abandoned its rich heritage and it seeking instead to lean upon the understanding of men and women rather than God and what He has revealed in His Word, the Scriptures.
The team will be working with a small mission church in Nantes and will have opportunity to use their French language skills as they carryout street evangelism, distribute literature door-to-door, and help organize Holiday Bible clubs in the city parks.
You presence on this team is a great encouragement to the host church and a wonderful reminder of the care and concern of God's people around the world for the efforts of those laboring in hard areas of His creation. If you would like to encourage the saints, reach the "lost" with the gospel of Jesus Christ, learn more about the rich Christian heritage of France, and improve your conversational French skills, then this is the trip for you!
Please pray that God would open the doors for you to go next summer and then please visit our website and apply.
I look forward to working with you!
Relation of Opportunity to National Church and/or Long-term Goals
This mission team works with a small church plant in Nantes. France has shown itself to be a very difficult and hard land to reach with the gospel (despite its reformation history). The partnership with the church provides the team with the assurance that proper follow-up will be made by the congregation following the team's departure so that new contacts can be discipled and enfolded into Christ's church.

Mission Trip Offered By RP Missions
RP Missions seeks to provide opportunities for God's people to serve Christ through short-term efforts partnering with established congregations and mission stations. Our primary tasks are to Serve Christ and His Church, Proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ, and Disciple the Nations. Our trips are primarily aimed at young people (Sr. High through College) but do consider groups who would like to get acquainted with missionary service. We desire to see Christian men and women grow in their confidence to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ and to grow in service to Christ and His Church. You will enjoy working alongside pastors, elders, deacons, missionaries and other church workers that can inspire you with their vision and aid you in discovering the tools that God has been pleased to give you through regular study of His Word and the investment of your parents and local church. If you have an overwhelming desire to serve Christ, to reach the "lost" with the good news of Jesus Christ, and if you are eager to get to know brothers and sisters in Christ from across His kingdom, we hope you will consider applying for an RP Missions trip! Our mission efforts are open to young people from the United States and Canada.
