Between 1998-2005, Valerie served on a Pioneers church-planting team in the Republic of Macedonia, targeting Romani Gypsies. God re-directed her to France in 2006, and after a year of language study in Paris, she served five years on a team in Montpellier. In 2014 she was accepted on a French-led team in Charleville-Mézières with the French church-planting mission France Pour Christ (FPC). In addition to her FPC association, she remains a member of Pioneers.
Valerie’s current ministry is in partnership with the small church plant on-site and is focused on evangelism through a wide variety of team-church outreaches, English language as outreach, and personal relationships. She teaches the Bible as part of a women’s small group in another town and actively participates in other aspects of church life.
