Chris Evans

Chris Evans

Youth Director

Chris and HyunAe Evans have had the opportunity and the privilege of serving in the teen ministry beginning July of 2016. Chris and HyunAe have been married since January 17, 2004, and have 2 blessings from God: a son by the name of Isaac, and a daughter by the name of Joanna.

Chris was born and raised in Montgomery, Alabama while HyunAe was born and raised in Seoul, South Korea.

They realize the truth that it is by God’s grace that the opportunity to serve the Lord has been opened to them. This service is a gift from God that allows Chris and Hyunae to serve the youth and our Lord. They are by no means perfect and they have a good deal to learn. But they also realize that God makes no mistakes, and He will teach and equip them to serve the ministry with a full and sincere heart.

Both Chris and HyunAe are grateful for the opportunity to serve Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
