WEC's ministry in France is wide-ranging and involves both sending and receiving Christian workers. WEC partners with evangelical churches in France to send workers to minister cross-culturally all over the world, but France is also a country where many do not know what it means to have a living faith in Jesus Christ.

Church planting teams are working amongst indigenous French, Basque and immigrant communities across France.
