About

Christ EC Church

Our Purpose is to provide opportunities for public worship of God, evangelism, Christian education, and fellowship.

Our Mission is to uphold a biblically-based ministry that promotes worship, fellowship, Christ-like character development, and teaching and evangelism opportunities so we may know Him and make Him known throughout our community and the world.

Christ Church of Allentown was birthed in 2007 by the merger of Grace Worship Center of  Whitehall and Boulevard Evangelical Congregational Church of Allentown. Utilizing the facilities of the former Boulevard Church, Christ Church endeavors to “know Christ and make Him known.”

Our Pastor, Rev. Richard T. Nahodil, was born in the anthracite coal mining town of Shamokin, PA.  After graduating from high school he worked in the garment industry for nine years.  In 1983 Rev. Nahodil moved to the Lehigh Valley to begin training for the ministry, one year after becoming a disciple of Christ Jesus our Lord.  Rev. Nahodil has a B.S. and Master of Divinity degrees.  He has pastored churches in Trappe, Boyertown, Vera Cruz, Hosensack, Berlinsville, Slatiogton, Pitman, and Allentown, PA.  Rev. Nahodil has been at Christ E. C. Church since July 2016.
