Rev. Douglas B. Evans, Sr.

Reverend Douglas B. Evans, Sr., grew up in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.   He graduated from the University of Pittsburgh in 1982 with a bachelor’s degree in social work. That same year, he began working with the mentally challenged at The National Children’s Center in Washington, D.C. In the spring of 1987, Reverend Evans graduated from Antioch School of Law where he received his Juris Doctor. In May of 2023 Reverend Evans graduated from Payne Theological Seminary where he earned his Masters of Divinity. Reverend Evans is an Itinerant Elder with the African Methodist Episcopal Church. 


As far back as undergraduate school and throughout law school Reverend Evans developed a pattern and practice of always advocating for the underdog; always focusing on what the needs of those that have been disenfranchised are. His goal is to continue to have a positive and real impact on those that society has discarded and attempted to abandon, all the while keeping and maintaining his focus on Matthew 25:40 “The King will reply, “Truly I tell you, whatever you did for the one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.” 


In October of 2005, he made his first visit to Empowerment Temple A.M.E., church and he joined in January of 2006. While at Empowerment Temple Rev. Evans accepted his call to preach, where he was blessed to receive the guidance and instruction of his Pastor, Rev. Dr. Jamal H. Bryant. He has thrown himself head-first into social activism and created the JustUs Legal Ministry.  Reverend Evans loves the Word of God, and has a thirst for justice.  He is committed to serving the Kingdom, and will do whatever needs to be done on behalf of the Kingdom. Rev. Evans seeks justice inside and outside the courtroom.


In September of 2017 Reverend Evans was assigned his first pastoral appointment at Bethel in Port Deposit. In April 2021, Reverend Evans was assigned to pastor Ebenezer Baltimore. This is his second pastoral appointment. He is now the proud pastor of the Star of Bethlehem in Baltimore, to God be the Glory.


Reverend Evans has one son, Douglas Jr., one grandson, Amauri Malik, and in 2009, he was blessed to marry his beautiful wife Kesha. He truly loves the Lord, and has found that all of his past experiences have lead him to where he is right now. 

Praise God!
