Bill and Gale Johnson served as church planters for ten years near Marseille, France. After twenty years back in the US, they returned to the southwest of France in 2016 where Bill pastors a village church started by French Christians about 20 years ago. Less than 1% of the population of France is evangelical, and the church Bill and Gale serve is the only evangelical witness in their area. Bill also works to raise awareness in their Reformed Evangelical denomination in France of the needs for theological training among French-speaking West African pastors. Once a year, he takes a French pastor along to West Africa to provide biblical teaching during one-week classes.
