Encompass World Partners
Our Missionaries: Dave & Susie Hobert have spent their lifetime serving the French people in the Burgundy region of Southern France. God called them to develop fully devoted followers of Christ in France as missionary partners from Grace Church. After turning over the leadership of the Montceau GBC to national leadership, are following up with contacts and evangelizing in Paray-le-Monial, 30 minutes south of Montceau. One new evangelical church is begun every 10 days in France, and the five Grace Brethren churches are working together to start five more.
Their Mission: Dave and Susie live in Paray-la-Monial in a city known as the city of the Sacred Heart. For the past year, God has prompted them to start a Gospel Discovery Group in Paray. They have conducted “faith walks” where a 6-mile trek in the countryside offers a chance for a testimony, a challenge, or a discussion about faith in Jesus with friends and neighbors. Dave & Susie have helped launch a monthly church gathering in Paray at the local cultural center where there is space to share their faith in Jesus. The Hoberts also serve at Grace College as missionaries-in-residence to foster missionary prospects and to provide perspective to college students who may seek to impact the world for Christ.
