Pastor Art Evans | Senior 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.
