85%. This figure may not speak to you, yet it is the percentage of Muslims who have never heard of Jesus' love. It's huge, isn't it? Like us, are you one of those who have an open heart for our Muslim friends? Do you want to get to know them better and meet them? Do not wait any longer and register for the school of Foundations for Intercultural Studies (FIS) here at JEM Provence!

- To know and understand Islam and Muslims

- Intercultural exchange and adaptation, reconciliation between cultures

- Thrive as an expatriate

-Creating bridges between Christians and Muslims

-Learning the oral transmission of stories

- Etc.


You will learn through different experienced teachers how to thrive on the field, and you will have the opportunity to practice what you learn directly in the region where we are. France is a country with a large number of immigrants, more specifically from North Africa, but also from different nations around the globe.

May the peoples praise you, God; may all the peoples praise you. May the nations be glad and sing for joy, for you rule the peoples with equity and guide the nations of the earth. Psalm 67 : 3-5

2nd part, July-September 2020

The lecture phase of 3 months will be followed by an internship in a North African country of at least 3 months. During this period, you will have the opportunity to taste this beautiful culture and put into practice what you have received, while enjoying the necessary support for your development and discovery. You will dive into the life and habits of the Maghreb and you will be introduced to their practices and their language!


Historically, YWAM Provence has been and remains a springboard for equipping and sending workers across borders. We work with experienced people, who know the field well, having worked in Africa and Asia among different people groups such as the Mongols, Pygmies, Fulani, Tuaregs, Malians, etc. This school is oriented towards North Africa but can also equip you for an implication in the Muslim world at large!
