Student Advisor & Instructor:
Reverend Evans has never been much of a stranger to the microphone, he began singing at a church in Newark where he sang and traveled with the New Jersey Mass Choir at the age of 9.

At Derek’s lowest point, God reached down and Derek reached up and he has not let go since. He is saved, sanctified, and Holy Ghost-filled, and he is equipped to do the work of advancing the Kingdom. Reverend Evans is also a graduate of the School of Discipleship, through Endure Training & Ministry, Inc. of Blairsville, PA!

"Those who start their journey with the School of Discipleship, you are about to embark on the adventure of a lifetime! You’ll be challenged in your spiritual walk and yet you will grow in spiritual maturity by leaps and bounds through this training and all that it entails. I truly believe if you have enrolled in the School of Discipleship it is because you are ready to go to the next level in walking out your faith, and I also believe it is through the leading of the Holy Spirit that you have enrolled. God has great plans for you and if you apply yourself to the teachings and disciplines taught through the School of Discipleship you will never be the same, yet you will never want to go back to life as you knew it before this life-altering adventure."
