Helping churches accelerate the training of leaders and future leaders

the Foundation

"Workers are a priority, because the church is our priority and without workers, the church goes nowhere."
Jacques Alexanian

Its mission

The SEMBEQ foundation has been around since the early 2000's, and its main mission is to help and support francophone churches in Quebec to accelerate the training of their leaders and future leaders.

The foundation accomplishes its mission by awarding scholarships to churches to train workers and future workers. The scholarships help workers dedicate more time to their studies, accelerating their training.

Its Origin

The idea for the SEMBEQ Foundation was inspired by Mr Jacques Alexanian, a pioneer missionary to Québec. He was president of the French Baptist Seminary, SEMBEQ, for many years (1973-2001).

He has a deep desire at heart to help and support aspiring students financially during their training.

ITS Autonomy

The SEMBEQ Foundation has its own Board of Directors and manages its funds independently of the seminary.
Most scholarships awarded by the Foundation have been distributed through SEMBEQ.
