After pastoring two churches, one in Maryland and the other in Atlanta, Pastor Evans felt God calling her to begin a new ministry in the Atlanta area. She is the Founder and Senior Pastor of New Jerusalem Christian Church. Her compassion and authenticity flows through every facet of her ministry and enables her to connect intimately with people from all educational, social, generational, and cultural backgrounds while transcending racial and gender barriers.

Pastor Evans is an energetic and divinely inspired preacher, teacher, pastor and Kingdom visionary. Her contagious enthusiasm and love for God and His people shine through her ability to rightly divide the Word of God while providing relevant and practical biblical truths for everyday life. With over 15 years of ministerial experience, she is grateful to have served in various capacities, such as a counselor, mentor, chaplain, and writer.
