A church founded on the true fundamental principals of Love, & Christianity!

Morning Star Community Christian Center, a multicultural, interdenominational, Christian based church located in Linden, NJ is a congregation of over 1000 believers who have the faith necessary to change lives through knowledge and consistent practice of biblical principles.

Morning Star was founded by the late Bishop Irvin Evans and his wife Constine and has evolved into lives being restored and destinies fulfilled under the leadership of the current senior pastor Dr. Therman Evans, who took over the pastorate in 1999. Morning Star’s mission is and always has been changing lives, discipling believers, and impacting the world. The message of “wholeness” in mind, body, and spirit, and helping people find their way back to God has contributed to Morning Star’s increased membership.

Meet Donna Hall

Meet Donna Hall.  A bundle of energy, doer, motivator, and woman of action are words that have been used to describe the always smiling Donna Hall. Donna grew up in Atlantic City, and moved to Elizabeth, NJ in 1979 where for many years, she attended a church with strong family ties.

For the past 28 years she has worked for several pharmaceutical companies. Her career path advanced her to a management position for Global Generic pharmaceutical leaders. Donna is responsible for operations and personnel in credit and collection, and the accounts receivable departments, a position she has held for the last 10 years. Donna’s positive attitude, with over 30 years of experience in customer relations, makes her a valuable asset in her organization. Donna has always loved being around people. She has been credited with facilitating problem resolution between wholesalers and retailers, also ensuring payments are completed and expenses are controlled efficiently, timely, and accurately.

Outside of her time at work, Donna enjoys travelling and spending time with her daughter, grand-daughter, and son-in-law. She has been an avid bowler for over 30 years and is a member of the Strike Merchants Bowling Club/Scholarship Foundation for more than two decades. She describes the group as a “special team,” a combination of young, retired, experienced, and inexperienced bowlers. To date, the foundation has raised and distributed more than $1M in scholarships. The bowling league has an extensive travel portfolio that includes yearly tournaments around the country. Today, Donna bowls twice a week and is proud of her “modest” average of 183! She speaks of the longevity of her friendships in the league, and the group of family and friends that has not missed a cruise or resort vacation in 30 years!!

After being at her family’s home church since her teenage years, Donna wanted to venture out and seek out a new church. It was during a discussion with a colleague and friend, Nichelle Esser, when she was invited to a service at Morning Star to hear her friend’s uncle preach. She recalls her excitement that there was an 8am service that would allow her to visit and still leave in time to not miss service at her home church. By the third visit Donna knew that she needed to transition. In October 2003 she joined the Morning Star family and immediately started attending both worship services. “After listening to Pastor Therman’s teachings, Donna says she couldn’t believe she has been in church all her life and never understood the sermons as clearly as she does now. “I could apply it to my daily life,” Donna says. “When I am going through hard times, I know God is with me and that makes me smile.”

She is co-chair of the Board of Ushers and a member of the Public Relations ministry, which allows her the opportunity to promote and disseminate information about her amazing church family.

Reading the book, “From Purpose to Promise Driven Life,” authored by Pastor Therman Evans, has empowered Donna to prepare and succeed in life. One of the lessons that Donna has learned is that “promise driven people have an optimistic attitude,” and they must also prepare.

Donna urges everyone to read this insightful book. Her favorite scripture is Philippines 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ Jesus who strengthens me.”
