Father Jacob Evans, Priest in Charge



From Father Jacob's Desk


September 2015

Hello St. Matthew's:

I look forward to meeting you all personally very soon but thought I would include a short biography so I can share a little about myself and family.

My name is Jacob Evans and I am from Newfields NH. My wife Carlene is originally from Foxboro, MA. We moved to New York in 2001 after I accepted a sales position with 3M in the Automotive Aftermarket Division. Carlene, my wife of 25 years, is employed by Shenendehowa Schools and is a Cook Manager at Chango Elementary. Katelyn, my daughter (22), is currently attending University of Buffalo and is majoring in Pharmacy. Jacob August, my son (20) is currently attending Stonybrook University and is a double major in Computer Science and Math.

I received a Master of Arts Degree in Ministry through the Nashotah House Theological Seminar in Nashotah Wisconsin through the Distance Learning Program. I was ordained to the priesthood on January 6th, 2015 at All Saints Episcopal Church in Round Lake, NY and served as a Curate there. I also have served as supply priest to several parishes until the Lord's call to serve as supply priest at St. Matthew's. Recently Bishop Love has assigned me to St. Matthew's as Priest in Charge. This will be a part time position starting September 1st and I will continue working my current position as a sales rep with 3M. I am looking forward to serving and growing in the Lord with you!



Fr. Jacob J. Evans
