Pastor  Bill Evans and Dana Evans

I’ve been married for 26 years to my beautiful wife Dana and we have 3 children: Madison, married to Joel Friesen, who lives in St. Louis, MO, our son Slaton, who lives and works in Annapolis, Md, and Lily a freshman a Covenant College in Lookout Mt. GA. I was raised in a Christian home, the son and grandson of Christian pastors, but at an early age began to follow the ways of the world and the flesh. My story, is that of the prodigal son who returns to his ever loving and watching Father after many years of rebellion. I was converted in 1985 and sensed a call to ministry in the early 1990’s and tested that call over several years. After authenticating my call in 1998, we sold our home and 15-year-old engineering firm and moved to St. Louis, MO, where I attended Covenant Theological Seminary. In 2002, I received my Master of Divinity degree, with an emphasis in church planting/redevelopment and world mission. In 2003, Dana and I were ordained as missionaries with Mission to the World. In 2004, I was ordained as a teaching elder in the PCA and took a call to serve with the MTW/Scotland partnership, as the redevelopment pastor of Nairn Free Church in the Highlands of Scotland, where we served for 4.5 years. In the summer of 2008 we handed that church over to a national pastor. In January of 2009 I was called to serve as the Pastor of Outreach at Severna Park Evangelical Presbyterian Church (PCA) in Pasadena, MD where I have served until August of 2017. I accepted a call to First Presbyterian Church in Dyersburg, TN where I’ve been since Oct of 2017. My philosophy of ministry is quite simple:

  • Christ centered
  • Spirit empowered
  • Prayer focused
  • Great commission & commandment driven
  • Relationally dependent
  • Culturally and cross-culturally engaged
