Just like you, we are multi-ethnic, presence-led and love-driven. Evangel was founded by a German immigrant that followed the call God put on her life. It all started in 1911. Wilhelmina Simmat, her husband, children and a 16-year-old boy, named Carl Loenser, emigrated from Germany to the United States. When they came here from Germany they settled in Elizabeth, New Jersey. Just three years later in 1914, Mrs. Simmat began small group meetings in her own home.
We are a family of believers that have chosen to follow Christ. We believe that God has called us as a Church to live out, "changed lives, changing communities." The Pastoral staff, leaders and Church family work together to help you go deeper in understanding Jesus, the Bible, and understand what it means to be a Disciple of Christ!
