In the wake of Dr. Lois Evans’ death, it has been announced that the Pastors’ Wives Ministry she founded years ago to support church women like herself will continue under the leadership of her daughter, Chrystal Evans Hurst.
“With the passing of my mother, my father asked if I would be willing to continue her ministry to pastors’ wives in her name. I quickly and eagerly said yes! While I am not a pastor’s wife myself, I have certainly been able to watch one of the best from the honor and privilege of my vantage point as her daughter,” Hurst stated in an email sent by the ministry on Monday.
Evans, who was laid to rest in January, had content already planned for the year, according to the email. And supporters of the Pastors’ Wives Ministry can expect to “also hear from personal friends and writers that my mother trusted to carry on this ministry,” according to Hurst.
“I hope you are as excited as I am to see what the Lord will do in and through the Pastors’ Wives Ministry as we continue on this journey together,” she stated.
Readers were directed to visit the new Pastors’ Wives Ministry website at LoisEvans.org.
Hurst, a speaker and worship leader, is the late Dr. Evans’ eldest daughter. Her siblings include Prisicilla Shirer, Anthony Evans Jr., and Jonathan Evans. Hurst is also the bestselling author of She’s Still There: Rescuing the Girl in You.
As we’ve previously reported, Evans, wife of Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship’s Pastor Tony Evans, died from cancer in December. In addition to being first lady of the church she and her husband founded, Evans was also his ministry partner and helped lead their The Urban Alternative organization. Evans, who also co-authored two books with her husband, was 70 years old.
