In 1999, Isabelle de Joode- Berthon had the opportunity to spend three months on an evangelism tour with the Celebrant Singers, an itinerant musical group based in the USA. The group came to France for three weeks during the tour. It was then that God birthed the desire within her to evangelize her country with a French traveling musical group. This seemed impossible in France and she felt inadequate to make it succeed alone! But God had put a message of hope in her heart that if she would just set in motion such a project, he would support her!
Some years prior to this, Didier Moya had at heart the same kind of venture. He asked God to call a person to lead the way and he would help. God answered both Isabelle’s and Didier’s prayers. In the spring of 2000, he allowed them to contact each other and to share their vision together.
In 2001, God used Isabelle and Didier to gather together about 20 young singers and musicians to form “Solidéo”. Their first tour was launched in July 2002.
Solideo celebrated ten years of ministry the weekend of November 2-4, 2012 in Valence, France. AGWM personnel, Suzanne Spolarich was privileged to accompany them as a spiritual coach and chaplain during their training session previous to this celebration. The group has grown to 75 musicians and singers. During that weekend. more than 2000 people heard the Good News through their ministry.
