MIMI’S HOUSE — A History.
Pastor Russell and Mimi LeGassick have served as the founding Pastors of New Beginnings Church / Ministry for 25 years, before retiring on June 16th, 2013 — when they transferred the government of NBM Church to Pastor Stéphane Chauvette — passing on the mantle of Senior Pastor of the Ministry to the leader of “A New Generation for Christ.”
Sadly, on February 6th, 2015 – just a few days short of celebrating her 82nd birthday – Pastor Mimi was promoted to Glory after a long and fulfilled life. Her passing away has not left one heart untouched. And so, to celebrate her life, her immense contribution and the crucial part she has played in the creation and welfare of New Beginnings Ministry, it was decreed that the sanctuary of the Church was to be perpetually graced with the picture/painting of Pastor Mimi. For all she has done in Christ, this congregation will never forget.
MIMI’S HOUSE — A Place of Refuge.
Founded in honour of Rev. Mireille (Mimi) LeGassick, MIMI’s HOUSE is a Christian, non-profit ministry, providing women with a chance to rebuild their lives. It is named after “Pastor Mimi”, who had the vision and desire to create such a place of refuge for women in difficulties.
The purpose of MIMI’s HOUSE is to offer shelter to those in dire need, on a short or long-term basis. It will offer help to women to conquer their spiritual battles and prevent them from living their lives on the street, by offering them lodging and counselling.
MIMI'S HOUSE is to operate exclusively as a charitable organization, by providing residential accommodation and support to the elderly women located in the city of Ville LaSalle (Qc), without discrimination as to race, color, nationality, ancestry or place of origin.
Please give generously today to this anointed vision, in Jesus Name!

“For I was hungry, and you gave Me food; I was thirsty, and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; I was naked, and you clothed Me; I was sick, and you visited Me; I was in prison, and you came to Me.” — Matthew 25:35-36
