Bishop Michael Jerome Evans, the Establishmentarian and Co-founder of Adonai Ministries, is a native Baltimorean and one of six children born to Donald and Betty Evans. He was educated in both the Catholic and in the Baltimore City Public School Systems. He has obtained his Bachelors and Master's Degree in Nouthetic Counseling. Bishop, as he is affectionately called, has obtained his Bachelor of Arts Degree in Divinity from Maryland Theological Seminary and is now in pursuit of a Masters Degree in Divinity from Maryland Theological Seminary.
Bishop Evans accepted his call to the preaching ministry while a member of New Elizabeth Baptist Church, under the pastorate of the late Reverend David Boyd. Bishop Evans was extremely serious about his mandate from God. He understood fully that "to whom much is given much is required." Bishop preached his initial sermon on May 30, 1993 and he was ordained on February 25, 1995.
Bishop Evans began to develop a profound love for the Word of GOD and the people of God. Consequently, he developed a burden and a passion for teaching. His conviction was (and still remains) that "people perish because of a lack of knowledge." As a result he was prompted to begin bible study sessions, which were first instituted in his own home. In January of 1997 God spoke to Bishop and moved upon his heart to establish a ministry. After receiving instructions from the Lord the ministry was birthed on March 30, 1997. Bishop Evans boldly testifies that, "Jesus Christ is the founder of this ministry and I am the co-founder."
Bishop Evans is a man of integrity, purpose, and vision. He is a man after God's own heart, who is devoted to kingdom building. In 1999, he accepted the role of first vice president of the True Fellowship Interdenominational Ministry. In January of 2002, the prophetic word was spoken that "Pastor Evans was no longer Pastor Evans: he is Bishop." On February 28, 2004, he was consecrated to the sacred office of Bishop by Apostle Floyd Nelson, Sr., his spiritual covering. Bishop Evans and the Adonai Ministries wait in earnest expectation of the manifestation of the perfect will of God. For it is written:
"No eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nether has entered into the heart of man, that things that God has prepared for them that love Him. But he has revealed them unto us by his spirit: for the spirit searches all things, yea the deep things of God." - I Corinthians 2:9-10
