It was in 1998 that God unveiled His plan to use Bishop J. Richard Evans, Sr. to bring
restoration to the brokenhearted. Bishop Evans is a man searching for
the heart of God. Nothing more, nothing less.
Bishop J. Richard Evans, Sr.
midst of dealing with a bruised heart, and years of unresolved wounds
that never seemed to completely heal, Bishop Evans was quickened to
guide God's people through troubled waters. The
Lord said, "There will be Divine Restoration," This place is not
embodied in a building, but a people. It is truly where God steps in and
Man Steps Down.
From Bible Study to Spiritual Ministry
being released by his pastor, Bishop Evans began a Bible study in his
living room. Within two weeks' time there was no longer enough room to
hold those that attended. This would lead to a brief stop in Eastpointe,
Michigan, and a subsequent move to the Boulevard and Gratiot in
Detroit. The ministry is currently located on the city’s east side. It
was here that the Lord revealed that if Bishop Evans would change his
mind and change his environment, ultimately his life would change. By the prompting of the Holy Spirit, Bishop brought that same spirit of change and restoration to the city of Mt. Clemens in 2007 with the birth of Divine Restoration Ministries-Mt. Clemens.
Bishop and Pastor Evans
with his highschool sweetheart, and wife, Bishop Evans has ushered in
an environment that encourages self-evaluation, and a willingness to
embrace change. Pastor Evans works tirelessly to assist the women of
Divine Restoration Ministries and the community, both young and old, to
maximize their full potential. In addition, she is an excellent
administrator and has utilized that gift in the advancement of the
Pastor Tenisia Evans
say that Pastor Tenisia Evans is a walking testimony is an
understatement. In the fall of 2004, she would be faced with the biggest
trial of her life. In 2 months, what started as minor discomfort
escalated into a full-blown attack that left medical staff baffled.
Life-Threatening Disease vs. The True Source of Life
5 months, Lady Evans lost 96 pounds, had 2 surgeries, numerous
biopsies, and a bone marrow harvesting. The disease Sarcoidosis
threatened multiple organs including her lungs and eyes. This disease
brought forth many names, such as stroke, bell palsy, cancer, glaucoma,
and blindness. But the Lord triumphed gloriously over them all!
Evans’ story is one of faith, for when doctors declared that they’d done
all that was medically possible, the strength of their faith and
commitment to God was put to the test and triumphantly confirmed.
No greater example
of commitment to God and family can be exhibited than what the Bishop and Pastor have guided those that follow them through. The
victories are almost too numerous to name. But if you should stop in on a
service, you’re sure to hear testimony of how God saved the lives of
those that lead this local body. Come…be restored!
