Evan Weppler

 

I grew up in a warm, Christ-following family- my dad Jim, my mom Nancy and my sister Amanda. My dad’s work brought us from Houston to England to Norway and back to Houston over the first 12 years of my life. I chose Jesus as my Savior at an early age and rededicated my life to Him in middle school.  I spent the next 7 years attending Cypress Christian School and serving the children and youth at Cypress Bible Church. Even as a kid, I know God had gifted me to work with younger people!

After graduating high school, I moved on to Baylor University in Waco, TX, where I pursued a BA in an interdisciplinary program and focused on Religion and Communications. During that time I worked summers at Forest Glen Camp as “Counselor Uno” and interned one summer at C BC. Upon graduation in 2012, I traveled up to Chicago, IL for a Masters program in Children and Family Ministries at Wheaton College.

While in the Chicago area, I began attending, serving, interning and eventually working at a small church named Poplar Creek Church, where I oversaw the “Greenhouse Ministries” which focused on helping children and families grow in the love of God.  After a couple years, I sensed God leading me back to the Houston area, and it just so happened that Cypress Bible Church was seeking someone to lead the Elementary Kids Life department!

I have seen God’s hand in my life from childhood through today—in the words of Rich Mullins, “Step by step You lead me, and I will follow You all of my days.”
