About the Base

OUR FOCUS: EVANGELISM

Mission statement for the base (Based on Acts 1:8) You will be my witness in Lyon, in France, in French speaking world and until ends of the earth.

Our favorite part of Lyon is that historically, the city has been a cradle of Christianity for Europe. Since the end of the first century, Lyon has housed many martyrs and missionaries, and was later a key city for protestants during the Reformation. It’s clear that our town has been on God’s heart since the beginning.  What a time to gather together in worship, hear from God, and to write the next chapter for Lyon!

OUR MAIN TOOL: ART

Our mission statement for the art department: To mobilize and train young Christian artists to evangelize and impact society through innovative art.

“New Generation” Discipleship Training School

The next DTS in Lyon starts on September 23, 2018 and ends on March 3, 2019.

What is a DTS?

A Discipleship Training School is a school to deepen your relationship with God, to learn how to make Him known and to discover the call of God for your life!

A DTS is putting time aside to ask questions and to build your life on a solid foundation. The Disciple Training School in Lyon inparticular is known as an artistic and urban school.

A NEW GENERATION Discipleship Training School?

About 30% of the world’s population is less than 20 years old! Never before in history has the youth made up such a large proportion of the population. This school’s goal is to assemble young and passionate christians who want to know God in a deeper way and to bring the gospel to this generation. In other words, it’s a DTS for young people by young people.

In order to do this, we are going to go through scripture-based training during the first 12 weeks (the Lecture Phase). We are going to live the gospel and learn how to share it. We are also going to develop artistic talents that we can use to share the gospel in innovative ways to the young generation. After the Lecture Phase, we leave for mission in a Francophone country (the Outreach) to share what we learned and received!

More info

Lyon is the second largest city in France, after Paris. It has always been a crossroads for business, art, ideas, and culture. A day spent walking around here can be like travelling through time.  

The Fourvière, for example, provides an authentic representation of Lyon during the ancient Gallo-Roman period.

Just down the road, one can stroll into “Old Lyon”, a well preserved portion of the town originally constructed during the Middle Ages and Renaissance. These areas are listed as Historical Sites by UNESCO and maintain their original features. Lyon continues to grow in size and in population, expanding both outwards and upwards!

Lyon could be described as a living city. People tend to live even in the most popular tourist areas.
