It’s with heavy hearts that we share our faithful, vibrant, joy-filled Dad, Tim Evans, went home to be with Jesus on Friday, August 21st. Though his unexpected passing has left a void that we are having trouble expressing in words, we want to reach out to those whose lives were touched by our Dad’s life, marriage, ministry and mission.
While we find ourselves overwhelmed by this loss, we are so very grateful for every second we had with him. Everyone who knew our Dad, knew that he loved being married to our mom. There was nothing he wouldn’t do for her or our family. He adored his kids and grandkids.
Our Dad was strong and passionate. He was an eternal optimist and constant encourager. He was a man who loved others deeply and intentionally. He was passionate about God’s design for marriage and looked for every opportunity to share the message of co-leadership and unity. He stood for justice and mercy. He was a leader that championed women. He walked humbly and loved God.
Our hearts are broken but our spirits have peace. We find comfort in knowing the first words he heard when he met Jesus were “well done good and faithful servant”. We also believe he responded with his famous catchphrase, PAAAARRTY!!
My parents always began every teaching by saying, Life is lived in stories. Stories build intimacy and God is telling a story of intimacy through your life. With this in mind, we are asking you to share your own stories, memories, videos and pictures by visiting this online gathering. We invite you to check this website regularly as we will be updating it with eulogies and additional videos in the coming weeks. Due to COVID, our family will be holding a private service with the hope of hosting a larger celebration of life at a later date.
Obviously, the coming days are going to be difficult for my mom as REAL LIFE ministries was always tim+anne. If you have any desire to support, invest, or bless Real Life ministries we invite you to do so here.
It’s hard for all of us to imagine this life without him. We thank you for the ways you’ve loved and supported our Dad and family throughout the years. Your partnership with Real Life ministries allowed him to walk out God’s calling for his life.
Timmy, Amy, Colleen, and Cate
