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: Oct 1st 2013
Had some good times of ministry at a local church and at a Retreat for recovering addicts - Celebrate Recovery. Still having difficulties with my legs and Anne is still waiting for wisdom from the Lord concerning surgery. (latest: Oct 10th: she has decided not to have the surgery). Both of us are in good health otherwise and our spirits are greatly blessed.
Nov 5th: Invitation to speak at Victoria Chinese Alliance Church: Nov 10th; 24th; Dec 22nd; 29th.

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
