Paul and Darla Brochu, Missionaries to France

Career missionaries to France since October 1993, Paul and Darla founded the Church of Châtellerault in western France before relocating to the Paris area where they currently reside.

As a world-class city of over eleven million people, Paris is home to many foreign workers and students.

A thriving work grew out of that community, creating a strong base from which to reach the French capital.

 The Brochu’s primary focus continues to be pastoring, developing and expanding the Church of Paris Centre through evangelism, training, developing leadership, opening new home cell groups and establishing new preaching points in various parts of the city and outlying areas.

Paul is an instructor at the French Bible Institute.

He is a member of the French National Board and serves as area coordinator for Western Europe in the Europe-Middle East Region.

The Brochu’s Global Missions involvement began in 1990 when they arrived in Luxembourg, serving in the Associates In Missions program.

They went on to pastor an American military congregation in Nuremberg, Germany, prior to their 1993 appointment to France.

A Maine native of French-Canadian descent, Paul Brochu and his wife Darla are founders of the First Apostolic Church in Wilton, Maine.
