After 19 years of pastoring in a nearby city and evangelistic ministry, Pastor Pfohl and his wife Brenda returned to Evansville in 1993.

Now in our third building phase his vision is being fulfilled. With over 100 active workers involved in ministry, God has given to our church a mighty cloud of witnesses declaring the Gospel in a variety of unique and exciting ways. Not only a gifted expositor of God's Word, but a strong committed leader, Pastor Pfohl is a man of integrity and character with a heart for our city.
