This denomination was founded in 1960 by the army chaplain of the French troops stationed there. After independence and the official departure of the French troops, the buildings became the property of a commission related to the Federation of Protestant Churches. The DEFAP (mission department of the French Prot churches) took responsibility for this single parish, which developed a growing threefold activity: a) regular worship life and Bible school; b) running oflanguage and vocational schools; and c) refugee work, serving as local agent of the UNHCR. The church building is also used as a place of worship by Ethiopian and Malagasy Christian groups. The Protestant Church of Djibouti houses in its worship life Christians from various countries (Ethiopia, France, Zaire, Burundi, United States, etc.) as well as from various confessions (Reformed, Luth, Bapt, Advent, Mennonites, etc.). Church members normally stay in Djibouti for not more than two or three years.
