Evan Bever has been called as Senior Pastor at First Baptist Church to begin on October 1, 2018. Evan is a 2009 graduate of Purdue University and completed his Master of Divinity at Princeton Theological Seminary in 2012. While in Seminary he did field education at First Baptist Church of Trenton, New Jersey. He has ministered with the Karen congregation in Trenton and at Quest at Green Lake. His ministry with our Karen congregation has been a natural fit since day one. Beginning as Associate Pastor in July 2012 Evan has fulfilled many roles, including trips to the southern states and to Thailand focusing on Peace and Justice. His preaching and worship leadership has been appreciated by all ages. Evan is married to Breanna and they have a son, Isaiah. First Baptist will be fortunate to have his creative ministry continues with us as he assumes the role of Senior Pastor in October.
