Lighthouse of Friendship

More than 6 million people living in France have relocated there from other countries. Over a quarter come from tight-knit, least-reached North African communities and tend not to assimilate into the local culture.

The Lighthouse of Friendship serves as a hub for outreach and discipleship among these least-reached people. Established in 2003 by a Christar church-planting team, this ministry center has become a place where individuals from a range of nationalities can experience the love of followers of Christ.

Through a wide variety of creative outreaches, Christar workers at the Lighthouse of Friendship meet needs in the community while connecting with people in need of Christ. Programs such as language classes, cooking and craft activities, ladies’ folk dance nights and care fairs, sports activities, game nights and kids’ Bible clubs give both workers and local believers opportunities to build relationships and share the gospel with those who have few opportunities to hear it. It’s also the meeting place for the multiethnic church plant, prayer meetings and Bible studies led by the Christar team.

Sarra* is just one example of someone who heard the good news at this ministry center. She was afraid of how her husband would react if she became a Christian, but God used the many hours she spent with believers at the Lighthouse of Friendship to help her overcome her fear. Despite harsh opposition from her family, Sarra placed her faith in Christ.

Your gift to the Lighthouse of Friendship will enable least-reached people in France to hear the gospel and experience the love of Christ! Funds raised for the Lighthouse of Friendship help cover the cost of this ministry center’s creative outreaches so that workers can continue building cultural bridges in order to share the good news with France’s least-reached people.

Specific needs:

  • $12 buys one French/Arabic Bible.
  • $30 pays for one worship/music book.
  • $60 covers a week of social media outreach.
  • $75 pays the electricity bill for a week.
  • $1,200 (four gifts of $300) covers operating expenses for one month.
  • $2,000 would replace the aging computer system.
  • $5,000 is needed for general repairs throughout the ministry center.
