David Evans is the Senior Pastor and has been involved in pastoral ministry for over 20 years, serving under the tutelage and teaching of David Guzik, Ricky Ryan and Chuck Smith. Born in Mission Bay, California, David grew up in a secular, modest, Hebrew home. He was delivered and saved by the Lord while working in the entertainment business after attending UCLA. David attended Calvary Chapel Bible college from 1995 – 1999 and Calvary Chapel’s School of Ministry from 2000 – 2001 while serving at Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa. It was in 2002 David, being stirred by the Holy Spirit, began to pray over Arizona when the phone rang at 1 am and David was given a Word from the Lord from Isaiah 58:11, “The Lord will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail (NIV).” So David moved with his wife who was 6 months pregnant and their 2 young sons to Arizona, where he waited on the Lord and served as the director and lead teacher for the Calvary Chapel Bible College extension campus in Tempe until the Lord again stirred David to step out and plant this Calvary Chapel in 2007.
David is married to his beautiful wife Melinda; they have 5 children and 1 granddaughter. David loves to serve the Body of Christ and the community. He loves to study the word of God, study the original languages and talk about Jesus Christ. His favorite authors include, CH Spurgeon, G. Campbell Morgan, FB Meyers, HA Ironside, Alan Redpath and Chuck Smith just to name a few.
