He is the Son of Bishop Leroy and Veala Evans Sr. He accepted Christ at the age of 13 and was a faithful member of Second Calvary Baptist Church in Brooklyn, New York.

Following his tenure in the United States Army, Reverend Evans retired from the Federal Government, where he was employed by the Army Materiel Command, and Army Logistics University (ALU). 

In addition to serving in various capacities of leadership throughout the years, Reverend Evans was also involved in a variety of ministerial endeavors that prepared him to embrace lost souls and minister to the whole individual regardless of challenges or limitations.  He was licensed to preach in 2007, and received his Master of Divinity from the Samuel Dewitt Proctor, School of Theology at Virginia Union University in 2010.

Reverend Evans has many favorites throughout the Bible, but Ephesians 3:20, KJV: “Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worked in us,” is where he desires to rest his heart on for such a time as this.
