Evans’ other research interests include trinitarian theology, pneumatology, ecclesiology, practical theology, Scripture and theological hermeneutics, and the thought of 20th-century Reformed theologian Karl Barth. Previously, Evans earned a Bachelor of Science in speech communication at Millersville University of Pennsylvania, a Master of Divinity at Duke Divinity School, and a Master of Theology at Candler School of Theology at Emory University.
