Church or Org Description
What began as a Bible study in 2012 launched as City Church on July 14, 2013, under the leadership of Pastor Jeff Kinkade, meeting in a temporary facility. The launch was highly publicized in Evansville and attracted a significant amount of interest from the local media. The church set up and tore down chairs, audio/visual equipment, etc., each week for approximately two years. By the summer of 2015, City Church purchased a 42,000 square foot church building in downtown Evansville.
This Gospel-driven church is focused on bringing spiritual, social and cultural renewal to the city of Evansville and beyond through a movement of people who are being transformed by Jesus. They believe the Gospel is sturdy enough to withstand all intellectual scrutiny, so people are free to ask questions, challenge, and grow.
City Church is made up of people of all ages, from college and young adults to young families, professionals and retirees alike. There is deep appreciation for creativity, excellence, Gospel-centered teaching, authentic worship, community and community transformation. This is a tremendous time for one to become a contributor to the active work Jesus is doing in this community through the ministry of City Church.
