The Wolof people of Paris & west africa
Our church has adopted the Wolof people of Paris & West Africa as our unreached people group to pray for, learn about, and seek to reach. The Wolof people are a large ethic group with a population of over four million. Most of them are located in the West African Countries of Senegal and Gambia. In recent years, however, the expansion of peanut cultivation and an acceleration towards urbanization has motivated many of the Wolof to spread out into areas including Paris, France.
According to the joshuaproject.net, professing Christians among the Wolof people in Senegal is at 1%; however, 0% is considered evangelical. The statistics are even more staggering for the Wolof people in France where there is no professing Christian witness at all. The Wolof people of Paris are considered a unreached and
unengaged people group.
As we pray for the Wolof people, the Lord is leading us to begin building relationships in Paris with the hope of eventually moving into the villages of Senegal. We will be sending teams to work in the foyers of Paris where the Wolof people live. Our prayer is to learn how to meet needs and point the Wolof people to Jesus.
