Claude became a Christian at 23, through the ministry of Agapé (Campus Crusade for Christ) while studying in Lyon. After receiving a doctorate in chemical engineering, he did post-doctoral work for two years at the University of Guelph. During this period, he attended Calvary Baptist Church in Guelph. When he returned to France in 1979, he joined Agapé to work with students. In 1983, he became director of our campus ministry, then head of administration in 1998. Currently he is in transition and little by little is giving over his responsibilities to younger colleagues and is in more of a support role.
