Born in Montreal, Sébastien Frappier became a professional actor at the age of thirteen. Despite regular appearances within Quebecois television, film and stage productions for more than ten years, Sébastien found himself increasingly disillusioned by the local industry, and left for California to pursue secular fame. As it happened, Hollywood would never know Sébastien Frappier.

Within the hot desert of New Mexico, the gift of new life through Jesus Christ became real to Sébastien. Personal ambitions to rise to fame melted away as a new greater purpose for living slowly impressed itself upon his heart.

Sébastien then worked as a full time ordained pastor at Calvary of Albuquerque as a Bible teacher, a Church History teacher, a Biblical counsellor, and an overseer of several ministries, including 35 home fellowships.

Sébastien then returned to Montreal in 2004 and founded Calvary Chapel Montreal Regeneration that same year. 16 later the church in thriving downtown Montreal, With mostly young people, from 20 countries and joyfully growing: 52 babies were born in the last couple years!!!
