Our Story

Appleton Gospel Church began in 2010 as a small group of 35 people led by David and Holly Parks. Meeting in the upper rooms of the former Harmony Cafe, they dreamed of a church that would love and serve the city of Appleton in Jesus’ name; a church where people could follow Jesus and help others do the same; a church that would be all about good news.

On Easter Sunday, April 24, 2011, Appleton Gospel Church launched publicly. Almost exactly two years later, on April 12, 2013, Appleton Gospel Church was welcomed into the EFCA as a full-member church and has been involved in partnership through giving and ongoing church planting ever since. Appleton Gospel Church moved into its current building facility in February 2020.
