Mark Evans Senior Pastor
Mark Evans understands people. For thirty years, he’s been helping people from all walks of life make the most of their life in their relationships, personal lives, and careers.
Mark’s life has been one unique opportunity after another. As a teenager, he worked as the Clubhouse Manager for the Arkansas Travelers, a minor league professional baseball team. There, he learned the meaning of hard work, long hours, and how to get along with people from all types of different backgrounds.
During college, Mark worked as a personal and research assistant for the Arkansas Secretary of State, frequently traveling with him to official engagements throughout the state. That job offered Mark unique insights into the lives of people who serve people and the struggles of having to make tough decisions.
After a career in Student Ministry wrapped up in Florida, Mark returned to his home state in 1995 to start a new church concept in Little Rock. From an opening day membership of 24 people, the church has grown to over 5,000 members in the last two decades — and, in the process, has sharpened and further developed Mark’s leadership skills and insights.
What sets Mark apart is that he deals with real life issues — the ones we all face, but seldom talk about. Mark deals with life as it really is — even the messy parts. His practical insights and down-to-earth approach helps make the Bible come alive to everyday life.
Mark and his wife Terri have been married 32 years. They love spending time with their children, Austin and daughter-in-law Jenny, Haley and son-in-law Steven…and are loving life as grandparents to Ruthie Jane Reynolds and Brayden Mark Evans!
