Evangel serves the city of Fort St. John and surrounding rural communities through multiple Sunday services, exciting children’s and youth programs, creative community events, and a network of small groups that meet each week.
Evangel’s vision is to be a church IN the city FOR the city. Staying true to our vision shapes how we format our ministry models. It also shapes how Christians in our church think – we steer clear of a consumeristic mindset where the church is primarily for Christians and their personal needs. It guides us as we do ministry.
Our vision is to become TRUE disciples of Jesus in every way. And maybe even make a few new disciples on the journey. This is crucial. So the first arm of our vision is to be a church for the city, and the second arm is that we actually become Jesus-followers by daily applying the work of the cross to our lives, and living in the fullness of the Spirit.
Our vision helps us fulfill our purpose: to lead people to Jesus, connect them in meaningful friendships, and release them to serve in Fort St. John and around the world.
