The National Council of Evangelicals of France announced the death of Jack Mouyon, president of the Evangelical Federation of France, which occurred on Monday January 17. He had notably worked for unity within the evangelical world.
Monday January 17, Jack Mouyon, former president of the Evangelical Federation of France (FEF) died at the age of 83.
Le National Council of Evangelicals of France (CNEF) pays homage to "the determined man he was for the cause of the Gospel", while Dominique Ferret, former General Secretary of the FEF when Jack Mouyon was President, evokes a "man of God, evangelist in the soul, initiator of several evangelical works, pastor and church planter in Montpellier”.
Among his most significant actions, Jack Mouyon notably worked for the unity of the evangelical world during a speech that marked the memories.
In 2001, in Nogent-sur-Marne, during the very first meeting of the presidents of French evangelical church unions, he stood up to ask forgiveness from the National Union of the Assemblies of God for "the negative attitudes and wounding of the past on behalf of the National Committee of the FEF with regard to the Pentecostals".
A strong gesture formulated “in the spontaneity of the Holy Spirit” which, according to the president of the CNEF, Christian Blanc, constitutes one of the “spiritual foundations” on which the evangelical organization was established.
“I will never forget the historic and very strong intervention of Jacques who stood up during this meeting to spontaneously ask forgiveness from the Churches of the Assemblies of God for the hurtful words of the past years. A magnificent coloring was given to the nascent CNEF! “recalls Dominique Ferret.
