Francis was born and raised in Lyon, France. As a young man, he was trained to be a chef in the elite world of Lyonnaise gastronomy. After working in that field for seven years, he was mentored and trained for the pastoral ministry by a missionary church-planter. He immigrated to the United States after marrying Donna Rapacz, a high school French teacher from Florida, but they returned to France a few years later for Francis to attend Reformed Theological Seminary in Aix-en-Provence. During that time, he and one of his professors, Dr. Peter Jones, planted a church together and help start a French Christian school. After graduation from seminary, Francis was ordained as a minister in the Presbyterian Church in America in 1987. Under the auspices of Mission to North America and Mission to the World (both PCA) between 1987 and 2005, Francis and Donna and their five children planted a church in Montreal, Quebec and a church in Lyon, France–where Francis also was founder and President of the American School of Lyon. They returned to the United States in 2005 to accompany their children as they attended New Saint Andrew College. To support his family during this time, Francis created a high-end French restaurant called West of Paris. After selling it in February 2011, he returned to full-time ministry to the French-speaking world. He is founder and President of Huguenot Heritage, working in partnership with Third Millennium Ministries as the French Project Coordinator. Francis and Donna are blessed with 17 grand-children.

Douglas Wilson is the pastor of Christ Church in Moscow, Idaho. He is a founding board member of Logos School, a Senior Fellow of theology at New Saint Andrews College, and he serves as an instructor at Greyfriars Hall, a ministerial training program at Christ Church. He helped to establish the Communion of Reformed Evangelical Churches (CREC) and is the author of numerous books on classical Christian education, the family, the church, and the reformed faith. After serving in the U.S. Navy in the submarine service, he completed a B.A. and M.A. in philosophy and a B.A. in classical studies from the University of Idaho. Douglas and his wife Nancy have three children and a bunch of grandkids.
