Nomination of a New Director at FPC

Given the exceptional public health context we now find ourselves in and the deferment of the general assembly to June 20th, the FPC strategic leadership team met on May 23rd and have officially named Daniel Kessely as the new director of the France Pour Christ mission. Jeannot Gauggel, director since 2005, stepped down a day before his 65th birthday.

During the missionary meeting (REM) in April 2019, FPC missionaries have widely voted in favor of Daniel Kessely as the future director. Following this, the transitional executive committee of FPC had decided that Jeannot Gauggel could pass the reigns by the next general assembly in April 2020. The general assembly, however, was rescheduled due to the current pandemic. It will take place via video conference on Saturday, June 20th instead. Jeannot’s departure was therefore anticipated.

We are grateful for Jeannot’s commitment as head of the mission for the past 15 years. It was not easy to succeed the founder, but he did it brilliantly, in his own way and with great sensitivity. He has also guided the mission amidst the transformation it is now experiencing.

A new chapter is being written, and a new executive committee is already in the works. Here is the distribution of responsibilities and tasks:

♦ In addition to general direction, Daniel Kessely will carry out the management of human resources. He thus relieves Roland Frauli of his duties as the human resources manager. We are also very grateful for Roland’s commitment and the work he has done throughout his time at FPC. He knew how to bring rigor and method. Roland formalized many processes, set up our retirement system, Tim4 training, and annual evaluations.

♦ Régis Perrin will act as the development and regional church centersdirector director.

♦ Jérémie Ouédraogo will remain in his role as the administrative and financial director.

We are grateful for this trio and how much they complement one another. The Lord has called them to this work. There is no shortage of projects, and the challenges to be met are many, including the synergy between APC and FPC. We pray that the new leadership may have wisdom and discernment guiding the mission into this new stage.

As for the retired and future retirees, may the Lord bless you in this new phase of life and guide you in new ways of service.

 

Matthias Kessely, on behalf of the strategic leadership team
