Evangel Church to hold Easter services at Bismarck Event Center

Evangel Church is already preparing to host an Easter services at the Bismarck Event Center for the second year in a row. Last year, 5,909 people were reached in a single weekend.

“Many people came and experienced church in a different way,” said Josh Skjoldal, lead pastor. “Even now, we’re hearing stories about people who have taken additional steps in their faith, and they identify last Easter as the weekend that started this change in their life.”

 Last year, more than 750 kids attended the Easter services.

“Evangel has never been able to host much more than 4,000 people on one weekend due to space issues, but the Event Center gives us the ability to host over 7,000 people on one weekend,” said Pastor Josh Skjoldal.

Easter services will have a live band, a practical and relevant message, be high-energy and have a ministry for kids.
