We believe in Urban Ministry with all our hearts. After over 15 years in Bangkok (22 years in Thailand) we feel that the city is the most strategic place for Gospel ministry. It is from the cities that the gospel best goes out to the towns and countryside. The city is our Jerusalem. Paris is our Jerusalem. On a secular note, "Just 100 cities account for 30% of the world's economy and ALL of its innovation" - Foreign Policy Magazine 2010. That speaks of a great number of people, creative energy, and prodigals are drawn into the city.Arrange to visit La Scene and other attractions in Paris using our Paris travel route planner.
“Neither revolution nor reformation can ultimately change a society, rather you must tell a new powerful tale, one so persuasive that it sweeps away the old myths and becomes the preferred story… one so inclusive that it gathers all the bits of our past and our present into a coherent whole, one that even shines some light into the future so that we can take the next step… If you want to change a society, then you have to tell an alternative story.”
We want to serve the leaders of Paris, connecting with them, learning from them as they build Gospel movements that help their city write a better story.
We will focus on two things;
1. Partnering: to growing an organic faith-based community: We are part of a small but dynamic young French community called, “Eglise Impulsion.” Impulsion has the meaning of ‘strong urge that leads to concrete action’. Eglise Impulsion is our dream of seeing a ‘movement’ that will influence and help change the lives of many Parisians from all layers of society. Our main strength is connection. Our growth will stem from building friendships and partnerships with neighbours, local groups, organisations, not necessarily only within the church, but definitely on Gospel mission to serve the city.
2. Discipleship: Our idea is that discipleship can start before conversion. The heart around discipling is to love on people by listening, including and intentionally spending time with non-believers. We also have a customised mission trips stream that looks more like experiential learning adventures in the urban setting of Paris. In the future we hope to develop internships of one month to three months. We believe a convergence of talent and insight (coaching) improves the discipleship process, the participants, and the final product.
La Scene Reviews
On the night I went, there was a great American funk band playing. Lots of attractive people, big dance floor (reminded me a little of House of Blues). Good drinks, good restaurant up front. more »
