The story began more than 40 years ago…
The Massy language school has existed since 1976, and was founded by the Federation of Evangelical Baptist Churches – la Fédération des Eglises Evangéliques Baptistes, the F.E.E.B.F, which is still the owner of the buildings.
At the beginning, its goal was to teach French to foreign missionaries from the European Baptist Mission, as well as foreign missionaries who were getting ready to work within the Baptist Federation – la Fédération Baptiste – in France.
From 1983, the school opened up to evangelical missionaries coming from other denominations, and who were getting ready to work in a French-speaking environment. Today, the school mainly takes in missionaries, but welcomes anyone with the passion to study French in a Christian setting.
