Benjamin Desruisseaux

Church planter at Église Le Clocher in Vaudreuil-Dorion

Benjamin and his wife Véronique are planting a French-speaking church in the youthful and fast-growing region of Vaudreuil-Soulanges. They are working on setting-up missional groups in the various neighbourhoods of Vaudreuil-Dorion and the surrounding area, which together will form L’Église Le Clocher (Belfry Church).

Karl Fortin

Church planter at Église Connexion in Plessisville

Connexion Church is a community of disciples of Jesus living and proclaiming the gospel in Plessisville. They hope to establish new gospel communities animated by the same vision.

Josué Praça

Church planter at Église de la Grâce in Verdun

Église de la Grâce's vision is to be a community-minded church relevant to unbelievers and serving the city. Their goal is to be a missionary church, overcoming ethnic, cultural and economic barriers and, in God's time, planting daughter churches.

Stéphan Tessier

Church planter at Église des Deux Rives in Beloeil

After receiving a call to ministry in Christian camps in 2007, Stéphan and Nancy served for nine years as directors of ministries and programming at Camp des Bouleaux in the Upper Laurentians. In September 2015, God, in his grace, led them to the Church in Saint-Hyacinthe to be trained as a church planting couple so that they could be part of the church planting team in Beloeil.

François Vermette

Responsible for the church planting project in Eastern Québec

François is a pastor in New Richmond, supporting the church as they seek a renewed mission to the community. He is also a pastor in Rivière-du-Loup, where they are currently experiencing a mini-revival. He spends about 60 percent of his time directing and guiding the Rivière-du-Loup church and its leadership, in person and remotely. They are currently working on starting a few house groups in the Bas-Saint-Laurent. Since May 2020, he has also been the coordinator for our Eastern Quebec churches.
