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: Sept 1st 2014
Since my last update, we have enjoyed a time of vacation in Wales with our daughter Andrea and her husband Rob. While in UK I also moderated a conference at Quinta retreat centre, near Oswestry, England. The conference was sponsored by Paul and Teeky Williams, two dear friends I met in 2008 after the Greenock conference on Revival. This conference had a similar theme, a call to a deeper life in Christ, personal revival. I also spoke at Mt Zion, Cardigan (yet again!) and chose as my topic, "Marked Men" (see my Teaching page). After Wales, we traveled to Stockholm, Oslo and Stavanger to spend some precious days with other family and friends, arriving back home in BC, tired but very satisfied, on Aug 21st, Anne's birthday.
Now to start another season of ministry. I shall once again be presenting a weekly Bible Study at the church I attend, PacRim Alliance Church, Victoria. This fall, we shall be studying the Book of Hebrews - the book of "better things".
Sept 5th-7th: I am invited to speak at the annual retreat for Celebrate Recovery - a Christian ministry to addicts, drugs, alcohol, etc. This will take place again at Nanoose Bay Pentecostal Camp, on Vancouver Island and will be the fourth time for my participation - a great privilege.
Recent and new Material
I have added three new videos to my Videos page; They are Spoken Word by Addison Lacasse, a young believer I am so privileged to know. Pray for him as he has the Lord's anointing upon him. The three videos are Doxology Who Knew? and Will you let Him in?
1) I have posted a poem written by Chas Wesley to George Whitefield in 1755 - a challenge to those who allow doctrinal differences to divide them. I'm sure you will be blessed as I am.
2) New SOAPBOX article - Utilitarian Christianity
3) There are 10 new quotes on my Quotable Quotes page.

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 the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of Glory, give to you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of Him."Eph 1:17
