Mitchell, Pete & Ruth

Serving in France | Acct # 14735


Pete grew up in South Korea, the son of missionaries. Ruth learned to trust Christ through her parents’ example of leaving their homeland of Australia and New Zealand to follow God’s call in North America.


Pete and Ruth met at King College in Bristol, Tennessee. Pete’s study of European history challenged him to consider the spiritual needs in France. After marrying in 1985, Pete and Ruth moved to Boston where Pete completed a master of divinity degree at Gordon-Conwell Seminary. He served as a pastor to children and families at Christ Community Church (PCA), in Franklin, Tennessee, from 1987 to 1990, and Ruth worked as a teacher at Christ Presbyterian Academy.


In 1992 the Mitchells joined the MTW church-planting team in Marseille where they served a church revitalization effort in the center city and a church plant in the south. In 2014 the Mitchells led the MTW team to a new location in Toulouse (southwest France). In a collaborative effort with an existing church in the center city, the MTW team is seeking to plant a new church in the western suburbs. In 2017 the exploratory mission of MTW in West Toulouse was approved as an evangelistic outpost of the UNEPREF denomination.
