Northwoods Church of Evansville, IN exists to make disciples who make disciples. Our hearts are set on reaching the city of Evansville (and the surrounding area) and training them in the areas of personal discipleship as well as personal evangelism.

On Sundays, we offer Bible study and two morning worship gatherings. Kids ministry is offered during both service times, and student ministry is offered during our early service time.

We look forward to the opportunity of meeting you! If you have any questions, please feel free to call us or contact us.

The idea that became NorthWoods Church was first conceived by a group of evangelistic members at Grace Baptist Church in Evansville, IN. Throughout its history, Grace had begun many mission churches in the area. Eventually, a core group was formed from Grace Baptist and after a long search, Bobby Pell was called as our pastor.

Grace had initially purchased a parcel of land on the northeast side of Vanderburgh County to begin this mission. The core group began meeting in homes and then after Pastor Bobby began to plant the church, we began meeting in an old gymnasium at the McCutchanville Volunteer Fire Department. The church quickly outgrew the facilities in McCutchanville and leased space on Hitch-Peters Road in a commercial/industrial area. It wasn’t long before NorthWoods needed more space and a small church building was purchased on Oak Hill Road. Within a year the church had grown to two Sunday services. It was clear that a larger building once again would be needed. In this time, the parcel of land originally purchased by Grace Baptist Church had been sold due to its location. The church purchased the land on north Green River Road where we are today.The building we are in today is only phase one of the master plan. Our two story building is nestled in a wooded area next to a lake. It includes a worship center, classrooms, and offices.

We are excited to see what God has done at NorthWoods. But we know the best is yet to come. We invite you to become a part of this great journey.


Our purpose is to make disciples who make disciples. We do this through our Discipleship Strategy.

Discipleship Strategy

  • Seed – sow seeds of the gospel to those who are lost
  • Seedling – encourage all new and young in their faith to be in a discipling relationship.
  • Fruitful Tree – Expect all believers to be investing in others by sharing the gospel and discipling new and young believers so that they might be fruitful for the Kingdom of God.
  • Orchard – we desire all believers to invest in others so that they can see people grow in their faith and see the same or greater levels of growth in their walk with God.


NorthWoods Church has within its DNA a heart for church planting.  NorthWoods Church desires to be a multiplying church that plants churches all across southwest Indiana and partners in planting all across the United States.
