Ev first attended Mill Plain UMC in the summer of 2000 after moving from Olathe, KS where she worked at Heritage UMC in Overland Park, KS.
Ev started on staff with Mill Plain UMC in spring of 2001, and although her title has changed throughout the years, she has continued to work closely with the Administrative Committee, including the Trustees and Finance.
She thoroughly enjoys leading Bible and book studies throughout the year and facilitating the Grace Notes outreach group. Ev also serves for pulpit supply when the pastor is unavailable.
Ev takes great joy in getting to know those who visit the church, whether for worship or on a drop-in basis. Finding ways to incorporate people new to Mill Plain UMC into various ministries of the church is a source of satisfaction. She is also pleased to serve others who contact the church for assistance and feels blessed to have Mill Plain UMC’s Pastor’s Discretionary Fund to provide a various types of assistance. Her goal is to ensure that whoever contacts the church for any reason knows that someone cares.
Ev has committed her life to following a phrase attributed to St. Francis of Assisi, “Go into the world and preach, when necessary, use words.”
