Our urgent challenge – roof and structural repairs costing €300,000

Maintaining this building represents a considerable challenge and for many years, repairs have been kept to a minimum. In February we discovered that some of the structural beams are rotting. We urgently need to replace the damaged beams and repair the roof, to prevent any further damage.

We praise God that we have already received a gift of €25,000 for this work. Please pray for God to provide the funds required, as the repairs are urgent.  

Please would you also consider supporting this appeal? Any gift, however small, would be a great help to the Institute.

About Nogent Bible Institute

Nogent Bible Institute is the only interdenominational establishment of its kind in France. It was founded in 1921 by the pastor and evangelist Ruben Saillens, an important figure in France’s evangelical movement, with this motto “The whole Christ in the whole of the Bible, for the whole world.”


Nogent offers biblical and practical training in the context of a Christian community (one or three years in residential courses), with a resolutely evangelical orientation that prepares men and women for ministry as pastors, evangelists, missionaries, and leaders of Christian organizations.


Nogent Bible Institute also provides essential training opportunities for leaders of African churches, both in French-speaking Africa and for the increasing number of ethnic churches in France. Similarly, the Institute plays an important part in training pastors from the French Antilles and Haiti.


The Nogent Bible Institute is well-known in French evangelical circles and trusted both for the clarity of its theological convictions and its desire for unity among evangelicals. In 1965, the Evangelical Seminary at Vaux-sur-Seine (FLTE) was launched by teachers from the Institute and in 2002 the two schools were formally united in a single federation. The Nogent Bible Institute also played a significant role in fostering relationships between evangelical denominations which led to the creation of the CNEF (National Council of French Evangelicals) in 2010. The CNEF is a member of the European Evangelical Alliance and accounts for 75% of French evangelical churches.


In the last 10 years, the evangelical church has doubled (and grown ten-fold in the last 60). There are currently over 745,000 believers attending 2,700 churches throughout France and a new church is planted every ten days! Yet half of France’s pastors are close to retirement, and it is estimated that 1,000 pastors need to be trained in the next 10 years to meet the needs of the growing church. Therefore, IBN launched an ambitious development plan to increase student capacity. Thanks to your gifts and support, a new dormitory building was inaugurated in April 2022 and this has attracted a lot of new students this year. The Institute was founded in an old “chateau”, a beautiful 18th century building which has been home to students and staff for over 100 years, and is essential to the work of the Institute. As part of our development plan, the ground floor is being refurbished, to convert the old dining room into a new classroom, and the old kitchen into new offices (plan and photos).

Inauguration of the new building – April 2, 2022
