Pastor Evan was born and raised in Columbus, Indiana, where he experienced a clear call to ministry at the age of seventeen. After graduating from Purdue University, he received a Master of Divinity degree from Asbury Theological Seminary in 2016. He has worked as a hospital chaplain at the University of Kentucky Hospital and served as the lead pastor of churches in Kentucky and Indiana prior to moving to Upland in July 2019.
Evan is married to his high school sweetheart, Emma, and they have two young children, Madeline and Clayton, who keep them on their toes. In his free time, you can find Evan working in his yard, cooking (and eating!) good food, following Purdue sports, functioning as a human jungle gym for his kids, laughing with friends and family, or responding to 911 calls as a volunteer on Upland’s Medic 8 Ambulance.
