Sermons by Pastor Dwight Bernier
Dwight grew up near Portland, Maine and was raised in a Christian home but decided that church and God were not for him. After several years, a series of events led him back to Christ and he enrolled in a Bible college. While there, he met several men from Quebec who told him about the incredible need of the people of Quebec to hear the gospel.
Montreal is a thriving, diverse city where the gospel has never taken root. Less than 2% of Montreal are Christians. Over the past 40 years, people of Montreal have turned away from their Catholic background and embraced an extremely pluralistic society that embraces all world views and cultures as long as they have nothing to do with the church. This has led to an ignorance of the Bible, Jesus and the church and how God can interrelate with their lives.
Dwight spent several summers in Montreal working with a missions organization reaching out to people of the city. His heart was burdened with the desire to plant churches in Montreal and share the gospel with those in the city. Dwight and his wife, Jess (along with their children Nehemiah, Malachi, and Sadie) are partnering with a mission organization called Acts 29 in the area of church planting. They moved to Montreal in Sept 2010 and are engaging in language study and making contacts with people to create communities focused on Christ.
