who we are

learn about evangel

Our core values

Our desire is that a person will encounter Jesus through the Word, prayer, worship, and revival.

God has called us to make disciples, not just converts! Our desire is to see people grow in both the knowledge and nature of Jesus.

People are our heart. Our passion is to love people, lead them to Jesus, and discover their purpose. 

We exist to make a difference. From local to global, our heart is to see God’s kingdom established on Earth as it is in Heaven.
