Evan is a born and bred South Alabamian. He was blessed to have Godly parents that made church, and more importantly, his relationship with Christ a priority. Evan surrendered his life to Christ at an early age and began to feel God's call to ministry at the age of 13. He leads his ministry based on the wise words of his youth pastor, "You don't surrender to musc ministry or youth ministry; you surrender to ministry and serve where and how God calls you." At this point in his life, God has definitely called Evan to serve middle and high school students and their familes. His goal is to partner with parents as they invest in their students and see them grow into Godly men and women. He is currently enrolled in the College at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary where he is finishing up his Bachelor's in Pastoral Ministry. Evan has had the pleasure of serving as both Music and Youth Pastor in Florida, North Carolina, and Dothan.
God recently called Evan and his wife, Elizabeth, back to the Dothan area to invest in their own hometown. Both Dothan natives, they moved back in June of 2017 with their two daughters, Larlee Beth and Ella Cate, and have since added the newest addition, Hannah Jo. Evan loves being able to spend time with his girls, but in a house full of pink, he also likes to slip off to the closest body of water or woods for some hunting and fishing.
Evan's "life verse" is Psalm 119:9 that poses a profound question and a simple answer: "How does a young man keep his way pure? By keeping it according to Your word." This is his drive for ministering to students and familes. That the foundation of God's word would be so deep in their lives that they are able to keep thier lives pure and live according to the truth of God's word.
