Église Chrétienne Évangélique de New-Richmond

  • Corporate body

In 1974 Mrs. Anita Dionne, from Grande Rivière, shared her story with her neighbors from which emerged a group of about 12 people. This group began to meet two times per month in the home of Pastor Jean-Louis Jacques in Grande Rivière. In 1980, Pastor Jacques moved to New Richmond, and began teaching this group together with a deacon from his church. If neither Pastor Jacques nor the deacon could come the group would listen to a recorded church service from l'église Baptiste of New Richmond, Québec It was in 1980 that the Mennonite Brethren Churches of the Québec Association received a call from these believers requesting a pastor. Taking this request seriously L'Association Québécoise decided to send some help. The call was made to Denis Tremblay a graduate from Laval Bible Institute (1979), who had been working for the past two years as an assistant pastor in St. Jérôme. In 1981, Denis and his wife Lyne, left Grande Rivière to plant a church in New Richmond. Many activities began to build the church. However, the group did not grow in sufficient numbers since many people kept leaving the region because of the difficult economic situation. Students also had to leave this small city to pursue their education. Yet the small group remained remarkably strong. Meanwhile, another evangelical group emerged in New Richmond and called Pastor Jean-Louis Jacques to move there in 1980. When he arrived, he started the Evangelical Baptist Church with only 20 members. Their numbers grew and 2 years later there were about 35 members within the church. Problems arose in 1981 which resulted in a split in the New Richmond church in 1982. After the split a group of 10 believers began to meet with the church in Grande Rivière. When winter came they asked Denis Tremblay to come and teach them in New Richmond once a week in a home. Denis accepted and this group decided to join the Association des Frères Mennonites. From January until July 1983, Denis and his wife Lyne worked part time in New Richmond and part time in Grande Rivière. After that they became full time in New Richmond due to the growing need. It was in 1984 that l'église Chrétienne Évangélique de New Richmond became officially affiliated with the association Québécoise des églises des Frères Mennonites. The leaders of the congregation were: Denis Tremblay (1984-1990), Marc Vanderham (1991-1992), Michael Roy (1993-1994), Bart Consuelle (1995-1997), Denis Bourdages (1998-2000)

In October, 1976 some of these new believers began a Bible study group in the Laval Bible Institute located at 85 Je me Souviens, Ste. Rose/Laval, Québec. On December 10, 1977, St. Thérèse church requested that the twelve newly baptized believers meet and organize the Ste. Rose Mennonite Brethren Church. This group of new believers started a regular church program on the second Sunday in January 1978.

Église Chrétienne de St. Laurent

  • Person

The St. Laurent church formed when Ernest Dyck moved to St. Laurent, Quebec and began to do some gospel work through literature and sermons. The first meeting place was a rented office space that had been converted into a Bible Center. It was only when more interest was shown that a Sunday service started in June 1968. In May 1970, David Franco was appointed the first French worker to serve the congregation. He was as a graduate from Bethel Bible Institute, Sherbrooke. Shortly before that, on December 30, 1969, the St. Laurent church was accepted into the Canadian Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches. Before purchasing their own building on May 1, 1974, the St. Laurent church had moved around 5 times during their first 6 years. The building they purchased was a duplex; only the main floor was used for the church, the upper floor apartments were rented out to help cover costs. In May 1980 however, the church sold the building and began to meet in a school auditorium due to the increase in attendance. This younger church of about 112 members, is actively focused on personal witness, evangelistic out-reach and discipling new converts. In 1973, Franco resigned to take up further studies, leaving the church without a pastor. Ernest Dyck helped out for 2 years until Pierre Wingender took over leadership. André Bourque followed in his footsteps only a few years later. The leaders of the congregation were: Pierre Wingender (1977-1979), André Bourque (1980-1986), Gérald Kraemer (1985-1988), Guy Demers (1989), Gilles Clermont (1990), Robert Godin (1991-1992), François Pinard (1993-1994), Claude Queval (1995-2000) Éric Wingender (2001-2002), Gérard Basque (2003- )

École de Théologie Évangélique de Montréal

  • Person

Ecole de Theologie Evangeliuque de Montreal (ETEM) was originally known as IBL or Institut Biblique Laval. In 1975, Henry Brucks, Executive Secretary for the Board of Evangelism of the Canadian Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches, made a visit to Québec. During his time there, Brucks had a vision for a Bible institute to build up the Québec church and leadership. January, 1976 the Board of Evangelism accepted this proposal and received approval to purchase the United Church building in Sainte Rose, Laval to begin what was known as the Institut Biblique Laval (IBL) This was the location of the Institute from 1976 to 1986. The Institut Biblique Laval was very involved with the ministry of the Québec Churches. The two main goals of the school have always been to prepare Québécoise leadership for the ministry and to provide a good biblical and theological foundation for the churches. The first classes took place in September 1976, under the leadership of Ernest Dyck, who was the President of IBL from its' beginning until June 1979. Within a few years, several other members joined the administrative team; Martha Wall (1976), Herb Wiens (1976), Ben Klassen (1977) and Gérald Janzen (1979). In the late 1970s and early 1980s, tension began to develop among the staff and board primarily because of the purpose and nature of the school. While some wanted this to be a more academic facility, others wanted it to be practical pastoral training. Unfortunately during this period of less than two years, a low level of confidence arose between the school and the Québécois leadership. Within this conflict period, there were several changes in leadership. Ernest Dyck resigned as president in June 1979 and was replaced by Herb Wiens until he resigned in June 1980. Ben Klassen then became president until 1982. In September 1981, Jean Raymond Théorêt joined the faculty after the completion of his studies at the Mennonite Brethren Biblical Seminary in Fresno; CA. Théorêt was appointed president of the Institution in the summer of 1982. Gérald Janzen taught until the end of the 1983-1984 academic year then he resigned. In 1986 the Board invited Pierre Gilbert to join the faculty, he left in 1996 to teach at the Mennonite Brethren Biblical Seminary. In 1986 the Institute moved from Sainte Rose, Laval, to Saint Laurent on the island of Montréal. Along with this move came the opportunity to provide training in urban ministries. In the fall of 1996 Éric Wingender joined the IBL faculty, and in 1998 was appointed president. It was under Wingender's leadership that IBL's name changed to École Théologie Évangélique de Montréal (ETEM) during the 2000-2001 school year.
