Evan Nave joined the team at Central as the Lead Pastor in the Spring of 2023. Loving God and loving others are at the center of Evan’s heart to minister as he uses his leadership gifts to encourage people to a thriving relationship with God through the finished work of Christ. Through his leadership Evan looks to hold to the calling of 2 Timothy 4:2 as it says, “Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction.”
Evan is a graduate of Johnson Bible College (now Johnson University) with a degree in Preaching and Church leadership and began full-time ministry in 2009.
Evan met his wife Erin while in college and they were married in the summer of 2008. They have four children Elyana, Ezekiel, Eden, and Eva. In his free time Evan enjoys spending time with his family, making memories, exercising and enjoying a good ride on his motorcycle.
