Who am I?
Originally from Montreal, I converted to Christianity in 1983 at the age of 22. The young woman who led me to the Lord became my wife in 1984. At that time, I was working at the Douglas Psychiatric Hospital where I was a specialized educator. I worked mainly with juvenile offenders. Following my marriage, I felt the Lord's call for ministry. So I started my Bible studies to graduate in 1988. I accepted my first pastorate the same year.
In 2006, after more than 20 years of pastorate in 3 different churches in Quebec, I founded the Ruisseaux de Vie ministry of assistance after obtaining a Master's degree in Pastoral Counseling from the University of Sherbrooke. In January 2007, I joined the pastoral team at Nouvelle Vie de Longueuil Church where I am now the head of the pastoral care department.
I hold a Psychotherapist's license from the Ordre des Psychologues du Québec. I am a member of the Canadian Association of Psychospiritual Workers (CAPE). I am also a member of the ITF faculty in Longueuil and an associate professor at Laval University.
I hold a D.E.C. in Specialized Education, a B.A.C. in Theology, a B.A.C. in Psychology, and an M.A. in Pastoral Counselling from the University of Sherbrooke.
My wife Cynthia and I have two children and two grandchildren.

It is with joy that I recommend the ministry of Pastor Daniel Décary. He is a man of pastoral experience, an excellent communicator and a pastor passionate about counselling. I rejoice to see a ministry like his that combines the Word of God, the search for the fullness of the Spirit and a high level of professional and academic formation. I thank God for his ministry, which I recommend without reservation.
I am pleased to recommend Pastor Daniel Décary. It is a friend, a colleague and above all a therapist who skillfully took up the challenge reaching out for people's real needs. It is rare nowadays to find a balance between faith and reflection, between knowledge and compassion for those who suffer... Daniel is an experienced pastor and therapist who has found and preserved this balance. I recommend him without hesitation.
Pastor Daniel Décary is a friend and colleague in the ministry for whom I have a lot of affection. Pastor Daniel is in charge of pastoral care at Nouvelle Vie Church and is a much appreciated preacher and teacher wherever he goes. I encourage you to discover him more, because I am convinced that you will be blessed!
I have had the pleasure of knowing Reverend Daniel Décary for almost 20 years. His integrity and compassion are an expression of his intimacy with the Lord. The teachings he brings reflect an excellent knowledge of the Word of God and a passionate desire to see it relevant to the twenty-first century. I will never hesitate to sit under his ministry, and I have done so on several occasions. It is therefore without any hesitation that I endorse his ministry, and that I recommend it to anyone who considers himself privileged to use his services.
I have known Daniel Décary for several years. We are happy to have him as a professor on the ITF (Institut de Théologie pour la Francophonie) team. In addition to being a very skilled and effective communicator, with the academic qualifications necessary for his ministry, he also has more than twenty years of pastoral experience. I consider him to be a man of integrity and passion with a heart for God and "others". I do not hesitate to recommend his ministry for churches and/or people in difficulty and in need.
