Join us July 28-30, 2016, for our second annual All Church Retreat at Northwoods Conference Center in the Watersmeet, Michigan.

We’ll rest and recreate. Our kids will have a VBS experience, thanks to one of our sister Converge churches. Great food. Worshipful music. Interesting and challenging speakers. Grow deeper in your relationships with others in Evangel’s faith community. 


How do corporations—Nike, Apple, Coca-Cola—gain consumers’ loyalty? How do they create goodwill among people so they turn to their brand first? How do they get people to purchase clothing with their logo? 

They do it through story. They create a narrative about who they are and what it means to own or consume their product. They get people to aspire to make the brand's story their own story.

Just do it. Think different. Share.

Branding isn't the image or logo. Branding is the story that the logo—or song, video, packaging—evokes. The image exists to connect us with the story. The image means nothing, if it were not for the story.

We are not consumers of Christ. We are children of a Living God. But we lost our way. We wandered from our true identity.

Join us as we explore how God is calling us back into a loyal relationship with him. Come listen to God's story, share your story, and be Branded by Love. (See John 13:35.)
