  Pastor Mark A. Evans               

The Evans Family


Pastor Mark A. Evans was born in Indianapolis, IN & from a very young age, it was evident that God had divinely laid his hands upon his life.  He accepted the Lord as his personal savior at the age of 14. In January 1983, Pastor Evans joined the Armed Forces and was promoted to the rank of PFC (Private First Class) and a few months later to the rank of Corporal E-4.  He was Honorably Discharged in 1986 & in 1998, he obtained a license to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Pastor Evans met the love of his life, Lady Asira, and they share & raise two beautiful children, Tailor and Isaiah, and two older children Markeyia & Mark Jr. who reside in LA.  In 2004, he transitioned to Puritan Missionary Baptist Church in Indianapolis under the leadership of Bishop Larry D. Grinstead, Senior Pastor.  While serving under Bishop Grinstead in December of 2007, Pastor Evans was ordained & served as an Associate Minister. 

In March of 2012, Pastor Evans became the Senior Pastor of Prince of Peace Missionary Baptist Church. His love for God, his family& God’s people has him extremely excited for what God has done & will continue to do! During his first year as Pastor, he has fostered several community relationships which included speaking engagements at St. Paul MBC, Shiloh MBC, and St. John MBC.  Pastor Evans has also supported other initiatives such as the Stop the Violence Rally at Rapture Temple Ministries as well as speaking to college students at a Praise Service during Homecoming. As the Lord leads, in 2014, we will be doing more community outreach.

Pastor Evans hobbies include playing basketball in his spare time, mentoring young men, riding motorcycles and a host of other sports related activities. His favorite quote is "it's not over until it's over." Our best is yet to come.

Lady Asira Evans was born and raised in Indianapolis, IN.  She is a 1990 graduate of Arsenal Tech High School and she received her certification in Medical Terminology 2007. At a very young age, she loved reading and learning about God’s Word!  The more she heard the more she wanted to know.  As she began to seek God, HE sought her and moved in her heart. Lady Asira wanted to please HIM, so she accepted the Lord as her personal Savior in 1992. In 1991, she met Pastor Evans at Montgomery Ward and in October of 1993, they became one in the eyes of the Lord and they have shared 20 wonderful years together.

As  God ordered her husband’s steps, she humbly followed and God led them to Puritan Missionary Baptist Church (Training Ground for Spiritual Warriors) under the leadership of Bishop Larry Grinstead. In this ministry, Lady Asira saw her spiritual growth soar! While gaining a deeper understanding of God’s will, power, and purpose for her life, the Lord began to reveal her spiritual gifts. Lady Asira was a part of Anointed to Dance Ministry. In 2007 Pastor Mark A. Evans & Lady Asira, along with Rev. Anthony Smith & Sis Tonya Smith, started the first Marriage Ministry at Puritan Missionary Baptist Church. Lady Asira also served the Minister Wives & Deaconess Ministry  as Vice President for two years.

In March of 2012, Lady Asira accompanied Pastor Evans to Prince of Peace as he accepted the Senior Pastorship.  While at Prince of Peace, God gave Lady Asira a vision for the women of the church.  In April of 2013, Daughters of the Divine was established under the guidance of Lady Asira. Passionate about serving the needs of the community, she also volunteered her time with the Terre Haute Catholic Charities.  Lady Asira’s hobbies include volunteering, crafts, ceramics, writing and she is the owner of an online clothing boutique for men and women.
