The Jewish population in France is the highest in Europe, with about 600,000 people and Chosen People Ministries has had a presence there for over 50 years. Now the Mission’s work is being guided by Guy Athia, who joined Chosen People Ministries in 2002. As the head of “Berger d’Israël” (Shepherd of Israel), he coordinates the outreach of Chosen People Ministries in France through the association: “Centre Messianique: Oeuvres auprès du Peuple d’Israël” (Messianic Center: Ministries to the People of Israel).
Among the activities taking place are Messianic worship services, special events and the publication of the Berger d’Israël magazine, which reaches a wide audience. The ministry is also quite active in visitation and Bible distribution.
