Lyon, France

Over 1800 years ago, Lyon was one of the first places in Europe to receive the gospel and was a stronghold of the Christian church. Today, Lyon is a city of 1.5 million people with less than 30,000 Christians.

Sojourn has 2 families living and working in Lyon, France. Our strategy is to come under the authority and vision of a local church in the city who has a vision to see churches planted. Together we are planting a church in a large neighborhood of 75,000 people with no evangelical church.

Pray for the Wainright and Leightenheimer families as well ask our partner French church, Evangelical Protestant Church of Villeurbanne-Cusset: Lyon .

Prayer for Lyon, France:

Father in heaven, you say to the people of Lyon, “Turn to me and be saved, for I am God and there is no other.” Give them ears to hear that you are reconciling the world to yourself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. Thank you for those who have partnered in the work of the gospel; may you who began a good work in them carry it on to completion, and make them one as you are one, that the world may know that you have sent your beloved Son. Amen. 

Adapted from Isaiah 45:22, 2 Corinthians 5:19, Philippians 1:5-6, & John 17:22-23
