Church Growth Conference Held in Paris

The 2018 Church Growth Conference last month in Paris was a great success. Ministers from France, United Kingdom, Netherlands, and Martinique gathered to receive ministry and coaching and participate in seminars.

In addition to leaders from those European countries, a team of pastors from the United States poured into European pastors at the conference. These included Joe and Kayla Dobbins, Scott and Elizabeth Sheppard, Tony and Kaci Stewart, Mark and Delta Schrade, Heston and Sherese Williams, Tony and Stephanie Jeter, Marty and Patti Baker, and JB and Dana Hurt. Other conference presenters included National Overseer Christian and Jaclyn Merlo, and Superintendent Chris and Kathy Swift. The conference was also honored to welcome General Overseer Dr. Tim and Paula Hill.

Mark Swank and field director Stephen Darnell are to be commended for organizing this edifying, life changing event.

Dr. Darnell said, “To all of our World Missions financial contributors, thank you, thank you, and thanks again. This was an unbelievable team which made an incredible impact!”
Paris is one of the cities of emphasis in the Church of God World Missions ‘Send the Light’ project.

“It is shining brightly across France and Western Europe,” Darnell stated. Two churches have already been planted and two more are on the way.”
