Gareth Evans is an itinerant pastor/teacher with a burden to minister to the hurting church. Formerly a Physics teacher in the UK and Canada, he became a pastor with the Christian & Missionary Alliance in Canada in 1979.
In 1991, he was invited to serve as pastor on board the M/V Anastasis, a medical, missionary ship operated by Youth With A Mission (YWAM). Since leaving that ministry four years later, Gareth has traveled to many countries, encouraging pastors and missionaries.
He is married to Anne and they have three married daughters, nine grandchildren and three great grandchildren. Gareth and Anne live in Victoria, in beautiful British Columbia, Canada.
On this webpage you will find some of the topics he teaches, listen to some mp3 sermons, view some photos, read some poetry and, hopefully, be encouraged and blessed.
First, however, please read the latest newsletter.

NEWS UPDATE: February 13th 2014
During Anne's two years dealing with cancer, my diary was unusually quiet. I was happy with that as it meant we could spend time, relaxing together. Now that she is well - (no signs of cancer present - PTL!), my diary is beginning to fill again. As I have never sought ministry, relaying on the Lord to open doors in His own good time, I have been patiently waiting for such ministry opportunities. Several have come in the last few weeks:
Tuesdays weekly: I meet with a lady who is hungry for the Word. We are currently studying John's gospel.
Wednesdays weekly: I meet with a young man from Wales by FaceTime for an hour together in the Book of Ephesians.
Feb 21st-23rd: We shall be at Lumby, BC where I speak at a Youth Retreat followed by ministry at Lumby Christian Fellowship, including the installation of their new pastor, Shane Mattenley.
Feb 27th: I have been invited to start a Bible Study at my church, each Thursday evening. I shall start with a study in the Book of Ephesians. I taught this course at Capernwray Bible School in Australia - you can find it at You tube - look for Gareth Evans Ephesians.
Mar 23rd: Victoria Chinese Alliance Church - Sunday service.
April 25th -27th: Victoria Chinese Church family camp. This is always a wonderful time of fellowship and ministry.
May 16th -18th: Young Adults Retreat at Whitehorse, Yukon.
May 27th-29th: Seniors Retreat at Cedar Springs Washington State USA.
July 11th-13th: Moderating a conference in Oswestry, UK. See details at <www.sanctuaryconference.co.uk>

Quote of the month: (see my Quotable quotes page)
Remember: Those who follow Him "afar off" can still keep their eyes on Jesus - but those who go one step ahead of Him, lose all sight of Him and walk in their own shadows.
"May our Lord Jesus Christ Himself and God our Father, who has loved us and given us eternal comfort and good hope by grace, comfort and strengthen your hearts in every good work and word." - 2 Thess 2:16,17
