REACH PEOPLE. ANSWER THE NEEDS.
REACH Beyond is our annual fundraising campaign. This allows us to reach more people for Jesus, meet needs, expand our church locally and create new ones globally.
We are convinced that it is when we give that we are most like Jesus. Our Reach campaign is our meeting each year to sow where lives are touched by the power of the Gospel. Christians will be rescued, where sometimes they are in danger of death for their faith. Young people from our region will have the opportunity to vibrate behind a message that gives them hope, a young pastor will be able to continue training in his field of action which is youth, a missionary from the other side of the world will be supported to continue its work of providing first aid to the most remote islands. The projects are varied, but they all have the same flavor, that of lives set apart to accomplish a mission in resonance with our heart as a church. Whether the amount is large or small, come and water these different precious projects in the same place with us! May our donations multiply!

Reach Nations – Training & Church planting
Support fund for the training of future pastors in the French-speaking world. As a church, we want to take seriously the training of future pastors with the aim of preparing the ground for the establishment of new churches in French-speaking Switzerland and France. 2/3 of our intern’s salaries are currently covered by the church budget. Our support will make it possible to fill in the missing part. Pastoral internship of Cédric Favarger: This is the last year of his internship that he is beginning with as much passion to see the hearts of young people dedicated to God. He has such a great heart to care this entire ICF Youth team (14-20 years old). He will continue his internship at 40% in this same direction, while continuing to develop a large part of the logistics of our celebrations. ICF Geneva chooses to continue to invest in Cédric, convinced that his know-how is a valuable experience for the rest of his journey as a pastor!
“this year, we witnessed a united youth, touched and transformed by God.”

Reach Needs – Social projects
Estera served several years in our church with her brothers and sisters. In 2019, as a nurse, she left for Vanuatu for a new adventure, bringing her knowledge to a local clinic and serving this population that is close to her heart. We have already had the opportunity to support it and we want to continue to do so. Since then, its mission has evolved, since it launched a project to regularly meet people in more distant islands in order to provide first aid. We are convinced of the importance of promoting the call of young vocations to serve God, Estera is one of them.
“Helping one person is already a victory for us, here in Vanuatu. By supporting Reach 2023, you allow us to bring God’s love in a very practical way, whether physically or spiritually.”
Estera Badulescu, YWAM Volunteer at Vanuatu
“Nous voulons être au plus près des besoins de l’église, là où ils s’expriment… Aide alimentaire, cas d’urgence, soutien spirituel et économique… nous voulons être une bénédiction au chrétiens esseulés et persécutés autour du globe.”

Fauve is a local film production company, more precisely based in Lausanne. For the past year, a young team has taken on the challenge of creating the New Wave series, carrying a message of hope for the young generation. To compete with the quality of current productions, the financial means they need are a real challenge. But they do not let themselves be impressed and put their talent and all their heart into this adventure. Our church believes that it is important to promote the know-how of young Christians who carry a strong and liberating message for young people. More informations : https://newwave.fauve.co

Reach Nations – Training & Church planting
Our desire is to plant dynamic churches throughout Europe and beyond. Churches where people find a personal relationship with Jesus, experience love and community, discover their gifts, and are encouraged to grow. We dream of passionate and vibrant churches that have a positive impact in society.
In our young history, we have already been able to establish more than 60 ICF churches in Europe and beyond. In many places, there are existing groups that could potentially grow into strong churches in the near future. With specific investments, we can significantly support this process: For example, by training leaders and financially setting them free , providing resources for actual projects, and being able to make necessary purchases. We therefore want to invest in selected initiatives and bring them forward in a specific way.
“Last year, with the dream in our hearts for a new kind of church, we started as a team in Starnberg. We are grateful for the financial support that helps us to build an ICF startup in this great city. We can’t wait to see what else God has in store here!”
