Rev. Brent Evans, Pastor
Rev. Evans is the son of a Presbyterian minister and was raised in a Christian home. He came to faith in Christ early in life, and began to discern a call to the ministry during his college years. He worshipped in a Free Church congregation in the Highlands as a young teen during the time of his father’s pulpit exchange with one of the Free Church ministers there. In more recent years, Rev. Evans came to agree with the Free Church’s doctrines on the purity of worship, the establishment principle and full subscription to the original Westminster Standards. He appreciated what he experienced of the preaching and piety that he found in the Free Church, and is grateful for the men of the United States Presbytery who took an interest in him. Rev. Evans is married with two young daughters.
Sovereign Grace Presbyterian Church is under the oversight of a Session consisting of Rev. Brent Evans, Moderator, and Elder Charles Greenwald; with Rev. Warren Gardner (Retired) serving by appointment by the Presbytery. The members of the Session also compose the Deacons’ Court.
Mr. Charles Greenwald is Clerk of Session and Clerk of the Deacons’ Court. Mr. Major Ansley is the congregational Treasurer.
The Presbytery organized a Preaching Station in 2004 in the suburbs of Atlanta. Rev. Warren E. Gardner was appointed the residential supply for the pulpit. When the mission was organized as a Congregation in 2006, Rev. Gardner was elected the minister. The congregation, which was established with the local name of Free Church Atlanta, is now known locally as Reformation Presbyterian Church. Services are held in Snellville, Georgia.
The Lord’s Supper is administered on the fourth Lord’s Day of January, April, July and October. There is a communion preparatory service on Saturday at 6:00 p.m., the day before the administration of the Supper.
