David G. Evans is the pastor/teacher of the Bethany Baptist Church in Lindenwold, New Jersey, and Prelate of the Abundant Harvest Fellowship of Churches. An anointed and gifted teacher, preacher, and administrator, Evans is known for his down-to-earth, life-applicable, realistic approach to preaching and teaching God’s Word. A dean’s list student and multisport athlete, Evans graduated from Lincoln University in 1973, where he majored in economics and education. He has served as a vice president for a commercial lending corporation and as the owner/operator of a commercial cleaning company. Evans accepted Christ in September 1976 and was called into the fivefold ministry in 1979. He was licensed to preach, and then ordained by the Bethany Baptist Association in 1989. This spirit-led visionary loves the people of God and delights in shepherding his multicultural flock. Called to this profound responsibility in 1990, Evans’ sensitivity and obedience to God’s direction has caused Bethany to experience tremendous growth. Numerous people have been saved, and multilevel, Bible-based ministries have been implemented to meet every possible need. Membership has grown from seventy-five to eighteen thousand. Evans was called to the office of Bishop in March 1996 as the Presiding Officer of the Abundant Harvest Fellowship of Churches—a full-gospel fellowship with a fundamental mission to evangelize the lost, edify the believer, equip the saints for ministry, and grow the local church. Recognizing the magnitude of needs throughout the southern New Jersey region, the Fellowship’s vision has extended to the creation of a nonprofit community development corporation, Generations, Inc. Under Evans’ leadership as Chairman of the Board of Directors, Generations, Inc., addresses the lifespan needs of southern New Jersey residents through economic development and a broad range of human services.
