Jonathan Evans
Professional Summary
I have spent eight years as an associate pastor learning how to pastor a church.  I completed a two year college equivalent course with the River of Life Conference of the International Pentecostal Holiness Church.  Courses of study include:
Christian Doctrine, A Pentecostal Perspective. Volumes one, two and three.
Knowing and Studying the Bible
Church Administration, 12 Keys to an Effective Church
Spiritual Gifts
Ministerial Ethics
Celebration of Discipline, Path to Spiritual Growth
The Making of a Leader
2000 Years of Charismatic Christianity
and many other courses of study.
I was licensed a minister and on June 21, 2008,   I was ordained a minister by the River of Life Conference by Bishop Charles Hawes.  In the spring of 2008 I was invited by the former Bishop, Samuel Fitzgerald, who named me as the next pastor of his church.  I did not fill that position as the Bishop passed away and, by request of his widow, she took over as the pastor.
In February 2010, I was named as pastor of the Lighthouse Assembly, Jacksonville, NC by Bishop Thomas L. Block.  The position was made available to me again in 2012.  Both times I was unable to sell my farm and had to turn down the church.
Currently, I am the outreach minister at Faith in God Fellowship and  also minister at the Brown County Jail, ministering to the inmates and their families. I assisted Joe Rose in opening the Narcotics Anonymous chapter at the church, which he runs by himself with Beverly Edwards representing the church.
I am applying for the position of Pastor of Faith in God Fellowship because I feel a strong pull from God to do so.  I believe I am a good fit for the pastor position for numerous reasons.  Among them are:  I live in the Russellville area and know many people.  I am retired, so I will be a full time pastor not limited by the duties of another job.  I will be available to our congregation 24 hours a day 7 days a week
My style of leadership affords me the ability to be available whenever I am needed.
I do not demand or request any type of payment for my services.  To me, being a pastor is a calling and not a job or occupation.  How would this help our church?  It would enable us to build up a reserve of money so that we may begin to help people in our community who need help.  We would be able to offer comfort and aid to the women who have been abused, or who have had addiction problems (I minister to these women weekly and I know how desperate  some of them have become.).  It would enable us to begin paying off our debt on the church so that we are not vulnerable to losing it again.  It would afford us the opportunity to reach out and bring children and others to church who have no way to get there. 
My Vision for our church:  To grow our church through unity of spirit, oneness of heart, mind and soul for our Lord Jesus Christ, compassion for our fellow man and the willingness of the body to serve Christ for His Glory.
Things I would like to see at our fellowship:
To have a weekly Bible Study and a midweek service. To bring back pot luck dinners so we can fellowship together, to have Praise and Prayer services where we can worship God and offer prayers one for another.   I have a vision to help women who are addicted and abused,  to reach the shut ins who cannot make it to church,  to reach out to the elderly and infirm..  And in  the distant future to open a safe house for young girls and women who are abused and in danger. 
Finally, I want Faith in God Fellowship to meet the needs of our people, spiritually and emotionally. 
I didn't attend a  seminary or attend college. It was the Holy Spirit of God who called me into the ministry and who taught me to minister and to preach.
