In 1986 Pastor Joe DeAngelo founded Good News Christian Church in North Haven, Connecticut USA.  He began holding meetings in various places such as homes, school auditoriums, halls, and then settled into store front property in his hometown.  In 1991, Pastors Joe and Linda married and began the expansion of their ministry with the love of God and prayer as their foundation.  They have a genuine love for people and understand that all believers in Jesus Christ are to be active in fulfilling His command, to go into all the world and preach the gospel.  As GNCC has endeavored to reach out into their community with daily and weekly outreaches they have also trained and sent many on short term mission trips throughout the years. 

Together they have traveled to over twenty-five nations bringing the Good News of Jesus Christ.  They have ministered to entire families through evangelistic outreaches, leadership conferences, children’s festivals and youth crusades.  They have also been involved with church planting and building projects.  With Pastor Linda’s nursing background, they have gone into countries aiding in disaster relief by conducting medical clinics and supplying humanitarian aide.  Through all of these experiences, the Bible is always taught at GNCC with relevancy and world perspective.  With God’s grace, in the year 2000, due to our growing congregation and ministries, the church purchased and moved into a 20,000 sq. foot banquet facility in Wallingford, CT.
