Situated in the heart of the Pacific Northwest, Evergreen Church serves about 2,200 people in the Seattle suburb of Bothell. Over the last handful of years, the surrounding neighborhood has grown exponentially, as companies like Boeing, Microsoft, and Amazon have planted roots nearby. This has turned Bothell into a multicultural community, with people from around the world moving to the area for tech jobs.
Evergreen seeks to be a welcoming outpost for the gospel in their ever-growing neighborhood. The words “Welcome Home” are written out in 70 different languages on their front doors, and they have created a deep culture of hospitality within the church.

Evergreen Church launched their Subsplash app in 2014, and have since added Fill in Notes and web integrations to their communication arsenal. We recently visited Evergreen learn more about their experience with the Subsplash Platform, and to hear about how God is using their ministry right here in our backyard. Evergreen has seen an extraordinary boost in community engagement through their app. We sat down with Communications Director Jeffrey LeBlanc and Lead Pastor Phil McCallum to hear more about their experience in transitioning their media library from Vimeo to Subsplash, boosting engagement with the app, and utilizing Subsplash’s media integrations. Here’s what they had to say:
Increased media engagement isn’t the only win Evergreen has seen through the Subsplash Platform. They’ve also used the app to increase engagement during church on Sundays, particularly through Fill in Notes. With Fill in Notes, Evergreen is empowering more people to engage with the sermon by taking notes on their phones. Unlike paper bulletins, these notes automatically save across all devices, and congregants can easily share notes with friends. Since implementing Subsplash’s Fill in Notes, Evergreen has been able to print less paper and save money. Check out the video at the top of the page to learn more about their experience.
We loved getting time to meet our friends at Evergreen and hear their story. To find out more about Evergreen Church, you can download their app or visit their website. And to learn more about how your church can experience these same results, contact us today at 206-965-8090.
