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.
