About Us

Operation French World is a ministry focusing on spreading the Gospel to the French-speaking world. Bren and Cheryl White work under the oversight of the Laurel, MD, Church of Christ with the support of Christians and churches from across the USA.

Operation French World (OFW) is an informal ministry that pairs people with mission opportunities, trains and equips workers, and facilitates church starts. We are passionate about sharing the Good News of Christ’s love with the French-speaking world. This mission is not only for those who love the French culture and language, but also who desire to reach people through personal relationship, informal Bible studies and everyday conversation.

Bren and Cheryl White have been involved in Kingdom work all of their marriage (41 years). They have been working full-time in French mission work for over 23 years, about the same time they launched the OFW effort. In order to reach French-speaking people around the world, they need you to get involved and equipped to help accomplish the Mission! You can contact them at ofwmissions@gmail.com.
