For 20 years, Africa has been the continent with the fastest growth of Christians. Church leaders in Africa face many challenges, including the threat of false teachings that circulate widely. It is therefore important that these leaders deepen their biblical knowledge to fight doctrinal hazards and thereby protect the mission of the Church to reach the unreached. That is why Dr. Jonathan and Anne have been trained to be able to respond to this urgent need. Jonathan has been teaching in Lomé, Togo since 2009 at WAAST (waast.org), to pastors, teachers, Bible school leaders and presidents of national movements from more than 20 African countries. Jonathan and Anne, drawn from their experience at EMCI TV, will also continue to broadcast Bible teachings for social media and TV. Be involved in this great strategic mission by committing yourself to support the Bersots in prayers. Any financial support will also contribute to the development of the French-speaking Church in Africa.

Jonathan and Anne served for 13 years as senior pastors of the PAOC Church of Drummondville after pastoring 7 years in France. Dr. Jonathan Bersot was also a member of the leadership team of the District of Quebec from 2004 to 2011, the academic dean of the Institut Biblique du Québec from 2011 to 2020 (ibq.ca) and the executive director at EMCI TV from 2017 to 2020 (emcitv.com). Jonathan serves today as Interim President at IBQ before moving to Togo.
It is now time for Jonathan and Anne to fully embrace their calling by moving in Lomé to participate more actively in the training of French-speaking Africa’s Church Leaders who come to WAAST to start their master’s or doctoral training.
Jonathan and Anne are parents of three adult daughters, Heidi, Sophie and Élise, all three involved in ministry, and grandparents of two grandchildren, Louis and Élina.
