EphesiansFour12 Profile

Robert Evans

Join Date:

Together, with my wife Vanessa, we are the Corps Officers (Pastors) at the Cranbourne Salvation Army, have twins - Rebekah & Adam - and are passionate about leading the local church. We have been in full time ministry for 17 years with appointments at Palmerston Corps in the Northern Territory, Horsham Corps in country Victoria, Noarlunga Corps in South Australia and now Cranbourne Corps in Melbourne.

I have often said that there are not enough Sundays in a year to share all that God has placed on my heart, so my blogging serves as an outlet to express what I am discovering in my faith and leadership journey. Feel free to interact with this blog and share within your circles of influence to unleash a passion for the LORD, the LOST, LIFE and LEADERSHIP in others!
