French Intensive Training
for Mission and Ministry

The Need

God continues to challenge people about the need for workers among the French speaking people of Canada. Yet, the ability to communicate in French and understand the Francophone culture are the most important prerequisites for effective service.

The Strategy and Plan
  • FIT4M is a French Intensive Training for ministry in the Francophone world for PAOC Bible College Graduates and ministers.
  • Mission Canada in collaboration with the PAOC Districts and the Institut Biblique du Québec (IBQ) are sponsoring the program.
  • Participants are partnered with a Francophone “Host Church” or Ministry in a ministry staff position during the one year program.
  • Accredited language studies are provided by UQAM (Université de Québec à Montréal) and Rosetta Stone Language Learning.

Do I Qualify?
  • The qualifications for FIT4M: (1) a Bible College Graduate with good academic standing; and (2) a willingness to give at least two years of full-time French Ministry after graduating from the FIT4M program.
  • FIT4M have bursaries available for tuition, books and basic living expenses for the Québec training portion.
