Story by LaTasha Hewitt
Allegheny East Conference's Community church in Englewood, N.J., recently hosted a three-week evangelistic and community impact series under a tent in McKay Park. Jovan Whyte, Community pastor and evangelist, led the series, themed “Keep Hope Alive.”
During the series, the church also conducted a health fair for the community. Local health educators, hospitals and care centers participated and provided resources on mental health, relationship advice and family counseling.
As part of the series, they also delivered care packages to those experiencing homelessness, senior citizens and single moms.
At the end of the series, 31 people decided to be baptized, including a Pentecostal deacon. “I love to see the joy that salvation brings,” says Whyte. “It’s an honor to be used as a vessel to win souls for the kingdom.”
