Year-end report 2017
One of the challenges of annual reporting is its very nature: productivity and growth are measured with numbers. However, we know that it is almost impossible to quantify spiritual growth, discipleship, and sanctification. So, as you read, keep in mind that we don't assess our ministry by numbers alone, but by our desire to witness the wonderful fruits that are produced as God's people grow in their knowledge and knowledge. in her love for Jesus.
Our goal is simple: to equip the French-speaking Church in the full knowledge and in the application of the gospel of Jesus Christ. There is so much going on in French-speaking churches around the world, and it makes us confused and humble to see that the Lord allows us to work behind the scenes to support, through literature, the work of hundreds of churches and churches. ministries. Please join us in thanking God who allows us to be part of his work.
2017 has been a tremendous year for Publications Chrétiennes. We have established new partnerships, published new books and taken on some really big projects. We are grateful to the Lord for allowing us to equip the French-speaking Church.
To give you some figures, we distributed 144,724 books and booklets this year, including 13,485 in Africa and Haiti . This figure also includes 28,047 copies of the Évangile de Jean which were used to evangelize Quebec.
Behind every purchase is someone who has purchased a book to help them better understand a complicated Bible concept, study a book of the Bible, walk towards a life of godliness, or announce the 'Gospel to a friend. Please pray with us that these books continue to be used as instruments in the hands of the Redeemer.
We have published and republished a lot of books this year. Here are some numbers:
22 Impact Editions books
2 Impact Académia books
5 Heritage Impact books
6 Cruciforme Editions books
16 Europresse books
In November, we launched our new website. Our goal was to make it easier to find reliable resources at the best possible price. We've already published and edited hundreds of books, and our new website is making it easier for people to find them.
During the Reformation, the printing press was the ideal tool to spread the fire of the Gospel renewal that led to the reform of churches around the world. Today, the printing press and its books continue to be a key driver of reform, yet we believe social media is reaching even more people than the printing press will ever allow. Our hope and our prayer through the creation of this blog is that the reform and its ideas can ignite social media with new fire so that all will come back to the gospel.

It now has 380 churches with 100,000 members and 350 schools with 68,000 students. With our help, the mission set up a bookstore on its main campus in Fermathe. This bookstore will serve their churches and make good books available for the various missions who want to buy books for the churches they serve.
Churches in North America
In 2017, we exhibited our books at several conferences in the United States. We have established several partnerships with churches and missions that work in French-speaking third world countries.
