Why Elan ?
As a sending agency, you want to set your new missionaries up for success. Elan wants to help.
Working closely with sending agencies and French partners, Elan offers a three-year program that provides supplementary structure and support for missionaries who are transitioning to the field in France. Your agency will continue to direct and supervise your missionaries’ endeavours, while Elan will complement those efforts by providing spiritual formation, mentoring, and coaching during the adaptation period.

As a French person who has worked with several cross-cultural evangelistic ministries in France, I’ve realized that those from other cultures have a completely different way of thinking and doing. I have often been frustrated by cultural misunderstandings in the heat of the moment, creating problems while we were trying to do ministry. This was never the time or place to confront these issues, but when is? With ELAN, I see the possibility of anticipating the challenges associated with our cultural differences. Elan will help the French Church to better integrate foreign missionaries while helping foreign missionaries to better integrate into the Christian world in France. We need everyone in this beautiful work that Jesus has given us to do, so that together we can reach France for Jesus Christ.Timothée Pomier, Pastor and church planter
