Didier & Abigail Casanova

Bonjour! We are Didier & Abigail Casanova and we live and serve in Corte, Corsica since Sept. 2019. Our desire is to see the people of Corsica come to Christ and to see an authentic Corsican church birth forth from them. Our shared vision is to relationally connect people to God and thus we have integrated into various sectors of our community including university life, professional/work spaces, and government.

Didier was born and raised in Corsica and came to know Christ 20 years ago. He has since served as a leader in several areas in his local church in France where he also developed a strong relationship with the Lord and discovered powerful gifting for intercessory prayer. He has a diploma in Pastoral Leadership, Bible &Theology.
Abigail is from Los Angeles, CA, and moved to France in 2014 to serve in full-time ministry. She was born in a Christian home, the daughter of a pastor with a church-planting ministry. Abigail received her call to missions in 2006 as the Lord was developing her through ministry at her local church. She has a bachelor’s degree in Organizational Leadership from Biola.

Beautiful Corsica needs the beauty of Christ

Corsica is an island situated in the western Mediterranean Sea and is a region of France. There are 360 towns, villages, and cities on the mountainous island with a population of roughly 340,000 people within its 5,419 sq. mi. (8722 sq. km.).

There are only 600 evangelical Christians or 12 evangelical churches on the entire island. To date, there are ZERO churches in Corte where we live, despite several previous attempts to plant one throughout the last 3 decades. Corte is in the center of the island with a population of more than 7,400 people. It is also the historic capital of Corsica housing the island’s only university. This makes it the hub of political and intellectual influence.

Major Characteristics in Describing Corsicans Include: traditional, proud, fiery personalities, hospitable, yet guarded.

The Challenge and Tension in Evangelism: Corsicans have a deep attachment to their cultural identity, often causing them to outright reject others, clouding their worldview. The majority of their education, politics, conversations, and therefore, way of life, centers around this purpose.

An advantage for us is that Didier is Corsican, having an intimate understanding and experience of the heart of his people.


Support our ministry

It is no secret that from the very beginning of the church Christians have taken an active role in being missionaries and sending missionaries. Yet not all are called to be missionaries. (We are all called to make disciples)

Being a missionary is a calling, but have you ever considered that sending missionaries is also a calling? So what is your calling? Are you the missionary or a missionary sender?

All Kontaktmission staff live on support, meaning we believe that God will provide for his mission, through his church.

Please consider joining our sending team by partnering with us in prayer and partnering with us financially.

Prayer Needs

  1. To continue building relationships with our neighbors, city leaders;
  2. That new encounters and relationships will develop. John 4:1-26; Luke 19:1-10
  3. Pray also for our relationship with Christians across the island.
  4. Pray for ministry to students to come together, and grow.
