In 1994, Kien and Tina Pham had a vision for a new church in downtown Edmonton. They began by gathering a few people in their house for Bible studies. Soon after, Pastor Nhien Pham as well as a few other individuals from Calgary came and led the Bible studies for a year.
In 1995, the group invited Pastor Chau Dang to become their first pastor. By January 1996, the church was fully incorporated and registered as charitable organization with Revenue Canada.
In 2001 Pastor Chau Dang relocated to Calgary and Pastor Thomas Pham was invited to become a senior pastor at EVMC.
Since 1995, numerous individuals have come and gone, serving as children's pastors. EVMC recognizes and deeply appreciates Deborah Penner, Brent Hamrell, Paul Cook, and Carol Saunders for their contributions to the lives of those who were and still are under their stewardship.
In June 2003, Pastor Anthony Henshall became the first youth pastor and served for 7 years. During this time, the English Ministry began to take shape.
He was succeeded by Pastor Matt Thompson in November 2010. However, due to responsibilities of his new young family, he stepped down in December 2011.
In September 2012, Pastor Kuen Yee accepted the invitation to become the first English Ministry pastor. She and her husband, Vernie, served the church for an eventful 4 years. During this exciting time, they helped lay a solid foundation for a burgeoning English Ministry.
Seeking a pastor for the English Ministry, EVMC once again reached out to Anthony Henshall. On February 2017, he began a new chapter at EVMC with his wife, Lieu--captivated by magnitude of change and eager to serve and build up the members of the English Ministry.
