Church Highlight: Evangel Church – Scotch Plains, NJ

Evangel Church, located in Scotch Plains represents a rich history, dating back to the year 1914. Evangel Church began in a small home and has had several different locations within Scotch Plains throughout the years because of their growth.

In the fall of 1980 ground was broken for the present building. It was dedicated to the Lord in December of 1981, complete with a sanctuary seating 950 people, several Sunday School rooms, an office area, and a gym for various fellowships and recreational activities. An addition to the church was completed in 2004, increasing the number of Sunday School rooms, adding more offices, a second kitchen, a multi-purpose room, a beautiful chapel, and more parking space.

In May 2013 Pastor Chris Morante became the Senior Pastor. As he sought the Lord’s leading for the future of Evangel, the phrase ‘unify and multiply’ continually came to mind. In April 2021 Evangel Church became one church in multiple locations with the launch of Evangel Woodbridge.

Over the past hundred plus-years, the church has grown from a small German-speaking church in 1914 to a large and diverse community with people from nearly every corner of the globe worshiping together in 2021. Evangel Church is excited to see what God does in and through Evangel over the next 100 years.
