Gethin was interested in French language and culture from a young age, and having completed his degree in Linguistics and a year in North Wales with UCCF’s “Relay” training and discipleship scheme, Gethin moved to Paris in September 2009 to work with the “Groupes Bibliques Universitaires” – the French Christian Union movement – for two years.
During those two years he gained a deeper understanding of the Church situation in France, and began to feel that maybe he was called to spend more than just two years there. Having finished his time working with the Christian Union movement, Gethin worked in a school for three years, taking the time to know the city better and supporting church planting efforts.
Gethin Jones was brought up at Heath and is a minister ordained in the UK Presbytery of the International Presbyterian Church.
He has been sent by them, with the help of UFM Worldwide to serve alongside a Reformed Evangelical church plant in central Paris called La Chapelle de Nesle, and to lay the groundwork for a potential IPC church plant.
