Evan Sidwell, Interim Director of High School Ministry

Evan Sidwell is the Interim Director of High School Ministry at Trinity Baptist Church.

Evan grew up in Pine Bluff, Arkansas, and graduated from White Hall High School before playing basketball at East Texas Baptist University. After suffering an injury that ended his college basketball career, he transferred to Texarkana College. Evan finished his Bachelor’s Degree in History and Political Science with a minor in World Geography from Southern New Hampshire University.

Since graduating, Evan has worked extensively with youth. He started his career working in the youth department at First Baptist Church Texarkana before taking an opportunity to work with the Genoa Central School District. For three years, he taught P.E. for Genoa, while coaching baseball, basketball, and football. In 2021, Evan left Genoa for an opportunity to teach math, economics, and geography at Trinity Christian School (TCS).

In addition to his teaching responsibilities at TCS, he also coaches basketball and baseball. Evan has also helped in the student ministry department at Beech Street Baptist Church.

“I’ve always had a heart for student ministry, whether I was coaching or teaching a Wednesday student ministry,” Evan explained. “Helping at Beech Street on Wednesday nights as their speaker recently ignited that spark for church ministry again. Through prayer and talking to mentors, I decided this position was a right fit. My wife is behind it, and we are ready to jump in and get rolling.”

Evan and his wife, Adrian, have been married since 2017.  They have one child.
