Evan has been a part of Rimrock Downtown from the beginning.  Back in 2012, when it was a 3rd service, he was brought on as a guest teacher.  Over the years, his desire and passion for the community has grown.  In the spring of 2017, he felt God calling him to dedicate more of his time and energy to RD.  As the community began to grow and developed into a 2nd campus, he was asked to dedicate even more of his time and become the Exchange Pastor.  He is humbled to have a role in God bringing his goodness to this world and is excited to watch a talented group of followers of Jesus walk out God's plan for Downtown.
