About Us

Trinity International Church of Paris is a multi-cultural family of believers committed to helping people follow Jesus Christ for the good of the world and for the glory of God. With individuals and families coming together from over 36 different nations, Trinity is a testament to how being part of the body of Christ transcends culture, education, language, social circles and more. In light of this, our prayer is to carry out the commission of disciple-making and to impact the city of Paris in a unique and God-glorifying way. Trinity is a member of The Christian & Missionary Alliance (C&MA) and the Alliance des Églises Chrétiennes Missionnaires de France (AECMF).

 

We express our faith as a body of believers in the following ways:

  • Celebration – Worshiping God for who He is and for what He does.
  • Connection – Belonging to a community that accepts people for who they are yet helps them become more than what they are.
  • Character Transformation – Becoming all that God the Father has created us to be, all that Jesus Christ has freed us to be and all that the Holy Spirit enables us to be.
  • Caring Influence – Serving the needs of people with love according to spiritual gifting, heart, abilities, passion and experience.

Our team

Senior Pastor

David Youngpastordave@trinityparis.com

Pastor Dave has been doing the pastor Gig long enough to forget he used to have a real job designing business process.  He has led small and medium sized churches around America and in Asia. He’s crazy about his two daughters, Karis and Hannah, and loves his wife Maryanne more every day. He enjoys swimming and playing golf (albeit poorly) and reading, especially a good spy novel. Dave has a fascination with abiding in Jesus, as well as the character, beauty, and love of his heavenly Father.

He grew up in a pastor’s home the youngest of nine brothers and sisters; at fourteen he knew God was calling him, and he responded with – ‘Lord send me anywhere you want; I just don’t want to be a pastor like my dad!’ Since then he stopped offering God conditions. Dave has a passion for soul care and spiritual direction. He studied with Larry Crabb and received a Masters Degree in Christian Counseling from Cairn University. His other passion is for God’s Word and the missional movement of the church in global cities around the world; to that end he studied Bible and world cultures at Columbia International University and is has completed a Doctor of Ministry at George Fox Evangelical Seminary focused on contextualizing spiritual formation for God’s displaced and global people scattered around the world.

Pastor Dave joined Trinity Paris in January 2019 anticipating we would mobilize into missional communities that welcome the displaced, the stranger becoming genuine friends and followers of Jesus together.
