Francis Schaeffer

In 1948 God called Francis A. Schaeffer and his wife to leave their St. Louis pastorate and make their home in Switzerland. From this beginning grew the fruitful ministry of L'Abri Fellowship in the Swiss Alps. Philosopher, theologian, lecturer, author, counselor—but above all, apostle to the questioning youth of many cultures—Schaeffer is remembered for his unusual ability to communicate the truth to all who sat under his teaching.
