After the Notre Dame fire: CIU alumnus discusses religion in France

Raphael Anzenberger directs ministry to French-Speaking world

Columbia International University alumnus Raphael Anzenberger reports that a new church opens in France every 10 days. But expensive rents often mean that these churches can’t move to the city center, and consequently have a harder time influencing their culture’s leaders.

Anzenberger, a native of France, is the director of Ravi Zacharias International Ministries for the French-speaking world, president of France Evangelization, and an adjunct professor of Intercultural Studies at CIU. He earned a Doctor of Ministries degree from CIU in 2011 and a Master of Divinity in 2005.

Listen to what Anzenberger has to say about religion in France in 2019. He was a recent guest on the Christianity Today podcast, “Quick to Listen” with the theme: “France Loves Notre Dame. Do They Still Believe the Faith that Inspired it? — The plethora of challenges confronting the faithful after a long and bitter divorce between church and state.”
