Evan Knott, pastor of the Dover First and Forest Grove churches in Dover, Del., was ordained to the gospel ministry on Sabbath, June 27, at the Ellicott City (Md.) church. Though in-person seating was limited due to coronavirus-related restrictions, a Zoom video conference and a live stream of the ordination service provided many additional participants the opportunity to take part in the special occasion remotely.
A product of Adventist education, Evan grew up attending Beltsville Adventist School (Md.) and Spencerville Adventist Academy (Md.), where he first began feeling God was calling him to pastoral ministry.
After obtaining an M.Div. degree from the Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary at Andrews University (Mich.), Evan accepted a call in 2015 to serve as associate pastor of the Frederick (Md.) church. In 2017, he transitioned to his current position as pastor of the Dover First and Forest Grove churches. Evan is joined in ministry with his wife, Lauren.
