Jean-Marie and Suzanne Frerot were both born and raised in Verviers, Belgium. After living in Brussels for a few years, in 1970, they decided to return to Verviers for Jean-Marie to preach full time for the Verviers congregation, and they have continued that commitment for the last 50 years.
The Verviers brethren meet in their own building near the center of the city, they have two elders, including brother Frerot. Jean-Marie is also heavily involved in evangelism efforts in French-speaking countries in Africa and elsewhere by mail, internet and other printed materials.
The sponsoring congregation is the Sand Springs Church of Christ in Sand Springs, OK, but several congregations and individuals are needed to cover the entire budget. 151st has made a one-year commitment to support Jean-Marie and Suzanne.
