Dan and Shelby Hill are ministering in France. The principal focus of the ministry is pastoring a church in Montreuil, France. Since October 2010, they have access to a new facility they co-rent that includes a large room that has place for Sunday school rooms. Together with their children, they lead all aspects of the ministry including the worship team and as teachers in the children’s ministry department.
Another focus of their ministry is outreach Evangelism. Church growth doubled in 2011. Members are sharing their faith and inviting people. Youth group doubled under the care of Gabrielle and Auguste. They are doing the work of a pastor and the youth are inviting their unsaved friends.
Dan and Shelby met at and married at Bethany School of Missions in 1985. They felt a calling to France to work with immigrant people esp Muslims. In 1992 they joined MRC. The worked with veteran pastors, Mark and Denise, in Paris from 1991-2000. During this time they were involved in ministry to the homeless, Sunday School, youth and evangelism as well as preparing their transition to the city of Montreuil in 1993, a city they developed a burden for. They began by setting up a stand at the public market for evangelism outreach. The church was opened formally in 2000.
A new fellowship was created with Montreuil churches. Together with other local churches, they carry out public evangelism with several independent churches which came about through Association 10000 souls!
