The Chesapeake Conference has selected Evan Knott to serve as director of the Communication Department, effective March 15. He is set to fill the vacancy left by Andre Hastick, who was recently elected as executive secretary of the Chesapeake Conference.
Evan Knott currently serves as the pastor for the Dover and Forest Grove churches in Delaware, and is married to Lauren who serves as a secondary education teacher. He holds two Bachelor of Arts degrees in Communication and Religion from Andrews University (Mich.), as well as a Master of Divinity degree from the Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary (Mich.).
“Having served as a pastor in Chesapeake for several years, in western Maryland and most recently on the eastern shore, Elder Knott will be a valuable addition to the Chesapeake Conference office team in his new capacity,” says Jerry Lutz, president of the Chesapeake Conference. “He brings to the department a skill set and experience that will ensure that our communication needs are well managed and cared for. The conference administrative team believes Elder Knott is well-suited to take up this important responsibility.”
“I’m excited and humbled by the opportunity to serve in this new role,” says Evan Knott. “As communication director, I look forward to telling the story of the amazing things God is doing through our churches and schools in the Chesapeake Conference.”
