Our Story

How it all started...

Pastor Ken and Louise Jasko moved to Marlboro from Princeton in 1985 to start a church. After much prayer, a handful of people gathered in Central Elementary School on October 13, 1985 for our first service. A committed group coalesced quickly as Pastor Ken shared the vision God had given him. The Assemblies of God helped the church at its start until it was self-supporting.

The church met for thirteen years in rented and borrowed homes, schools, fire houses, churches and even restaurants, over thirty locations in all. During this time the church grew and became increasingly diverse as people from many different ethnic groups found a home with us.

The church moved into its own building and previous location in 1998. More people came, and two services become necessary in 2003. In January of 2011 Monmouth Worship Center moved into its new 39,000 square foot home on Vanderburg Road in Marlboro. With over twice the space and parking spaces, we are now better equipped to serve God and the community. The new building features a sanctuary that seats 800, twice as many classrooms as before, and a gymnasium and multipurpose room.

Expanding the vision...

Monmouth Worship Center is embarking on an exciting journey. The journey will enable us to grow spiritually as individuals and to grow God’s kingdom as a church body.

Our goal is to be an Acts chapter 2 church. In Acts chapter two, verses 42-47 we see a very succinct description of the essential elements of the early church. These elements are as applicable to us today as they were in the days of the early church. 

Where we are headed...

They committed themselves to the teaching of the apostles, the life together, the common meal, and the prayers.

Acts 2 43-45 Everyone around was in awe—all those wonders and signs done through the apostles! And all the believers lived in a wonderful harmony, holding everything in common. They sold whatever they owned and pooled their resources so that each person’s need was met.
46-47 They followed a daily discipline of worship in the Temple followed by meals at home, every meal a celebration, exuberant and joyful, as they praised God. People in general liked what they saw. Every day their number grew as God added those who were saved.

Together and empowered by the Holy Spirit, we are not only capable but anointed to share the gospel with every people group on earth.
