Barry and Rachel Baggott work to take the gospel to more than forty countries in the French-speaking world, providing literature and radio programs and making trips to plant churches as well as to edify and to train leaders. Barry now directs French World Outreach, a literature ministry begun more than forty years ago by Jerrel Rowden. FWO publishes a wide variety of tracts, correspondence courses, books and Bible class materials. A catalog of materials can be seen on-line at http://www.frenchworldoutreach.org/. Barry also provides either recordings or texts for numerous weekly FM radio broadcasts in nine French-speaking countries and travels regularly to help plant or strengthen local congregations and to teach in preacher training programs. The Baggotts worked as missionary apprentices to Arlin and Judy Hendrix from 1984 to 1986 in Lyons, France, then worked from 1987 until 2003 with Bob Prater in the French-speaking country of Côte d’Ivoire, West Africa. The Baggotts worshipped as members of West 7th in 1987 and again from 2003 to 2008.
In 1992 Barry began publication of a free, bi-monthly teaching periodical called Chemin de Vérité (Way of Truth). Currently over 16,000 copies of each issue are mailed to French-speaking individuals and churches in over 35 countries. In 1995 Barry opened the Bouaké Bible School, a two-year preacher training program, now operated by Ivorian brethren. The school has trained over sixty-five evangelists who now serve churches in Côte d’Ivoire, Burkina Faso, Mali, Guinea, Ghana, the Congo, Cameroon and Chad.
