John and Sue Wilson

Who: John and Sue Wilson

Where: France

How long: Since 1988

Principal ministries: Church

John and Sue have been living and working in France with BMS World Mission since 1988. John trained for the ministry in Britain and Sue trained with Agapé (Campus Crusade for Christ).


Previously, John and Sue have been working in Lyons where they were involved in a church planting project in Bron and have seen the Church play a key role in the life of the city and maintain a ministry to the poor.


In January 2017, John and Sue relocated to Paris and are now pastoring the Baptist Church at Avenue du Maine, in the 14th district of Paris. This is an old and well established church and one of the largest in the Baptist Federation, but it is not in as strong a condition today as it has been historically.


In addition, John devotes a portion of his time to chairing the national Ministry Commission and Sue helps to chair the national Children’s and Youth’ Committee.



They enjoy spending time together, reading, watching films, cycling, swimming, skiing, playing sport or listening to music.
