Sports & Recreation

Evangel is blessed with wonderful facilities and a large campus. Both are used as part of our outreach to the community.

Basketball / Gym

Come into our gym on almost any Saturday morning and you'll find a basketball game in progress. The current group started with several Sudanese refugees and students, which has expanded to a larger group of their friends. While the mix of players has changed over the years, one constant has been Paul van Gorkom (right), who has been a participant and coordinator for many years.

Our gym/multipurpose room was part of a major addition constructed in 1976. The gym has served us well for dinners, social activities, sports, and as our place of worship while the sanctuary was remodeled. The gym itself was refurbished as part of that renovation project, with much improved lighting, and the floor was refinished in 2013.


A large open field on the north end of our property has been used for softball, club programs, Vacation Bible School (photo), block parties and other outreach events.
