ABOUT THE FRENCH BAPTIST UNION
A UNION in action serving a CHURCH on a quest. The French Baptist Union is a community of Baptist Churches in French-speaking Canada, contributing to the body of Christ through growth, multiplication and Churchplanting.
The French Baptist Union offers precious administrative support to its members, including social advantages for the pastoral workers, financial leverage for the purchase of Church property, support with accounting and juridical serivces and more.
The headoffice offers extensive administrative support to Churchplants, until they can incorporate themselves.
The head office coordinates the strategie and unity of the Union, offering adequate support to its Churches and their boards, providing ressourcing for its workers and a yearly congress to unite and encourage the members of all its Churches.
In partnership with CBM, the Union encourages its members to take part in mission projects. Every year, several members of UEBFC Churches go to Haïti, Africa and other destinations to experience serving abroad.
The French Baptist Union also offers its Churches meditation support when a Church goes through a crisis and needs help from the outside to walk through the challenges and come to a healthy resolution. At all times, the regional directors are available to meet and discuss their requests or preoccupations.
As a representative body, the UEBFC interacts on the public place with political, cultural and religious entities, in circumstances that vary according to projects and situations. The inauguration of the Place Feller in St-Blaise-sur-Richelieu, QC is a good example of how the headoffice was able to collaborate with local political and cultural entities to make better known our presence, heritage and history in our contemporary context.
