Bishop Lewis E. Evans is Sr. Pastor of Soul Harvest Ministries, which he founded by the Holy Ghost in May 1994; and Presiding Prelate of the Soul-winners Evangelism And Disciple-makers Interdenominational Fellowship (SEAD), which was organized in 1996.
Bishop Evans places great value on the call of God, the anointing of the Holy Spirit and educational preparation for the work of the ministry. Called to preach at only four years old, Bishop accepted Christ and was filled with the Holy Spirit as a pre-teen, and pursued his childhood calling as a preacher at age 17. He later attended the University of Detroit and received a Bachelor of Religious Education from Detroit Bible College ( William Tyndale) in 1977. In 1987, he received a Masters of Arts degree in Biblical Counseling from California Graduate School of Theology, Anaheim, California, and in 1991, a Master of Arts degree in Pastoral Studies from Ashland Theological Seminary, Ashland Ohio. Bishop Evans engaged in doctoral studies, beginning in 1988 at California Graduate School of Theology, and later at Faith Evangelistic Theological Seminary. He was conferred with the degree of Doctor of Theology from the former Faith Evangelistic Theological Seminary on May 14, 1994.
Beyond his educational preparation, Bishop was raised in the church. He is the son of the late Bishop O.A. Evans, pastor emeritus of the Indiana St. Church of God In Christ where he pastored for over 50 years, and the late Mother Oxolla Evans, a praying, Godly woman.
Bishop cherishes his wife, Pastor Lynda Evans, his partner in ministry and he is the proud and loving father of two daughters, who have in turn blessed him with eight grandchildren, and four great-grands. Both daughters also work in the ministry. The oldest, Brenda, serving as an Associate Pastor.
Bishop Evans is a highly anointed leader with a vision for God’s people and a bold stance for the Lord. He has an unparalleled passion for the lost, and he is one of the greatest teachers of the Word in the body of Christ. Bishop, a Pastor of Pastors, is academically prepared, spiritually attuned, intellectually astute, mentally elevated, equally yoked, faith empowered, eagle-eyed, enemy lethal, ever-ready to meet the challenges of ministry in this century.
