Pete and Ruth are church planters in Toulouse, France, working with Mission to the World (MTW) and in collaboration with the French Reformed Evangelical Church. Pete's role is that of team leader and co-pastor of the congregation on the east side of Toulouse. With the empowerment of the Holy Spirit, they are seeking to revitalize that church so that it will help the development of a new evangelical church plant in the western suburbs of Toulouse. Pete and Ruth are already residing in the target area where there are no Protestant churches, working to develop a relational network and prepare the launch team for the new church plant in Tournefeuille.
As the team leader for MTW South France, Pete seeks to give vision and pastoral care to the larger team. Their team is currently composed of three career missionary families and two couples appointed for three years. Their primary goals include prayer, personal evangelism, evangelism training, discipleship and nurture of believers, leadership development, and networking with various Christian denominations.
