Pastor Art Evans | Senior Pastor |                                                     

Pastor Wendy Evans | Associate Pastor |

Pastor Art began his relationship with Jesus Christ at a young age.  His parents were in full-time ministry before he was born and so he was raised in the church.  However, during his youth he made decisions that were destructive and harmful to his life and destiny.  Thankfully, when he met Wendy, God once-again captured his heart.  Art and Wendy yielded their lives to the calling of God for ministry and have followed His plan, together, for the past 31 years.  They have been the Senior Pastors of San Diego Christian Worship Center, in Southern California, since 1994. CWC is a church family committed to reaching San Diego and the nations with the power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Pastor Art’s desire is that people would experience the pure redemptive love and power of Jesus Christ and grow to their full potential in their relationship with Him.

Pastor Wendy has been in full-time Pastoral Ministry, with her husband, for over 30 years.  She was raised in Shreveport, Louisiana and began her relationship with Jesus Christ at a very young age.  As a mother of three children, (and two dogs and cats!) Wendy has a very humorous perspective of the goodness, faithfulness and power of God.  With a deep love for Jesus Christ, His people and His Harvest, she's an excellent teacher and minister of God's Word.  

As an ordained Minister of The Gospel, she is the primary overseer of God's Girls, CWC Women's Ministry.
