Robert McFarland, Sr. Pastor

Pastor Robert McFarland and his lovely wife Lorena come to Evangel Church from Illinois by the way of Oklahoma City and Nashville, TN. They started in the ministry in 1975 with their family singing and sharing the love of God. In 1982, they joined the staff of Cathedral of Praise World Outreach Center in Oklahoma City as Family Pastors. In 1987 they became Senior Pastors of Calvary Assembly of God in Crystal Lake, IL, where they ministered the next ten years. After a short time pioneering River of Life Fellowship in Cary, IL, they moved to Nashville, TN to assist at Oasis Church under Pastor Danny Chambers. Robert and Lorena were called to Sun City and Evangel Church in 2005 to serve as Sr. Pastor and Music Ministers.


The love of family is God�s gift to man, and the goal of Pastor McFarland for Evangel Church. �Everyone needs to feel the love and strength of God in a family setting, and we are striving to make that happen at Evangel Church� says Pastor McFarland. �We are a congregation working to create a loving, accepting atmosphere where everyone is welcome in the family of God.�
