Our story

Over 10 years ago, Jay and Paola Arisso felt God's calling to plant a church. At that time, the city of Elizabeth had approximately 120 churches. Elizabeth, New Jersey didn't need another church;  Elizabeth needed a different type of church. In 2007, God's vision for Today's Church was planted in our pastor's hearts, and they began to meet with two close friends in their home.

Their passion is to see lives being transformed by God and a church that everyone could call home. After seven years of meeting in different homes, in 2014, we had our first service in Elizabeth High School. Since that day, God has continued to demonstrate His hand upon this vision. 8 Years later We know that the best is yet to come!
