Administrative history

The St. Eustache Church was born in an old house near the big Catholic Church in St. Eustache, Quebec. In the 1970s, a group of neighbors began to meet at Mme Madeleine Wingender's home where they would have a small service and talk about Jesus. Mr. Ernest Dyck, the pastor of the Thérèse Church would come an teach on his day off. It was in this way that the official church was born. What started with seven or eight individuals soon grew to about thirty. Due to this growth, Wingender's home needed to be renovated to accommodate the people. A group of young men, consisting of Pierre Wingender, Jean Théoret and Robert Dagenais began taking on leadership within this small church. In 1976 a committee was formed in order to organize the St. Eustache Church as a daughter church of Ste. Thérèse Church. The St. Eustache Church joined the Canadian Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches in 1977. The church consisted of 12 members and was lead by pastor by Robert Dagenais. At first the church met in a school auditorium and later in a local community center. July 4, 1980 construction began on a new church building. This church has witnessed an incredible evangelism outreach; starting with only 12 members and then growing to 69 members in under 3 years. The pastor of this church in 2006 was Stéphane Rheaume, and there were 101 members. The leaders of the congregation were: Robert Dagenais (1977-1986), François Vermette (1986-1988), Blaise St. Louis (1988), Jean-Victor Brusseau (1989-1996), Stéphane Rheaume (1997- ).
