Why Evana Network?

Who We Are

Evana Network is a movement of pastors and churches who want to see God’s kingdom come through the power of Jesus Christ. Our common ground is an evangelical Anabaptist theology, as articulated in the personal covenant our church leaders sign. Our common vision is to see Jesus bring transformation to our local communities.

Our Vision

Our vision is to see local churches focus on community transformation by deeply engaging with the local community; seeing God’s heart of love for broken people; and responding with healing presence, radical hospitality, and strategic compassion.

What We Do
“Confession, Covenant, Community, Commission.”
  • We organize regional networks with partner churches for community engagement and church planting.
  • We partner with existing evangelical Anabaptist institutions (denominations, conferences, districts, mission agencies, universities, etc.) to facilitate a shared evangelical Anabaptist witness and to generate movement toward community transformation.
  • We facilitate learning communities for leadership development.
  • We host an online community to connect and resource individuals on a regional and global level.
  • We develop regional and national training events to network and resource leaders.
  • We provide credentials for pastors of congregations without other affiliations.
