Evans is originally from Marshall County, where he graduated from Marshall County High School in 1994.

They lived several places over the years, including Memphis, Nashville and St. Louis, before they finally ended up closer to home.
Evans said his last job was as the regional manager for C.H. Guenther & Son, Inc., a grain-based food manufacturer, in St. Louis. He had never planned on following in the footsteps of his father, who preached in Tuscaloosa, Ala., but ultimately decided to make career change.
