DEL & BARBARA GIBBONS

  • They serve with Crossworld in Quebec in a multi-cultural French church in Verdun on the island of Montreal.  Their region is a mosaic of cultures and religions.  For example, in the neighborhoods around Verdun in recent years, two traditional churches were bought by Buddhist groups and one other hosts a Sikh association.  In their area of Montreal there are about 120,000+ French-speaking people and few conservative evangelical French churches. One of the challenges of ministry in Quebec is accompanying first generation believers (and pastors) who do not have a Christian heritage in their family or culture.
  • Their vision in serving with a French-Canadian pastor, is to share the Gospel and disciple believers primarily through the ministry of the Verdun church and also on a secular campus and in the city.
  •  Barbara’s ministry is with ladies, children and helping with the local CEF mailbox club.

DAVID AND KATHRYN LOHNES

David and Kathryn joined World Team in 1978. They left for France in 1981 where they are involved in full time church planting. There were two small evangelical churches when they arrived in Cergy-Pontoise, a “Ville nouvelle” situated 25 miles North West of Paris. During their 16 years of ministry there, God used them and their team to start two new churches. They are mature churches today with French pastors and national leadership in place. During a period of 5 years David and Kathryn ministered at Black Forest Academy in southern Germany. Apart from their responsibilities as dorm parents, they began a pastoral care program for the dorm staff which was adopted by the board of directors as an important and necessary on-going ministry. In the fall of 2002 David and Kathryn returned to France to begin a third church plant in the Oise.
