North End Missionary Baptist Church has called a longtime minister as its new pastor.
The Rev. Stacey Angelo Evans of Wilson has become only the third minister to serve the congregation in its 90-plus-year history. He took the post Dec. 15, a release says.
Evans comes to North End following 10 years work at White’s Chapel Missionary Baptist Church in Speed, where he served as associate and then senior pastor. His focus there included spiritual and pastoral leadership, outreach and church administration.
His previous ministerial experience includes service as assistant minister, associate pastor and interim pastor at William Chapel Missionary Baptist Church in Elm City.
In addition to church service, Evans formerly directed the Congress of Christian Education for the Western District Union of the Old Eastern Missionary Baptist Association, the release says. He also founded and serves as the teacher and minister on the “A Time for Transformation” radio program on WCPS-AM (760) in Tarboro and W289BL (107.5), WCPS’ FM transmitter in Rocky Mount.
Evans’ education includes a bachelor’s degree in religion earned at Mount Olive College and studies at Washington Bible College in Latham, Md., and graduate studies at Campbell University Divinity School in Buies Creek.
In his civil career, Evans serves as a magistrate in Wilson County. He also has four years service in the Marine Corps, including participation in Operation Desert Storm in 1991.
