The elders of Faith Community Church believe very strongly that they have a solemn mandate to “shepherd the church of God which He purchased with His own blood” (Acts 20:28). The men affirmed and appointed to this position have been examined according to the Biblical standards found in1 Timothy 3:1-7 and Titus 1:5-9 and have been judged worthy. We believe that this plurality of godly men to lead our church is a hopeful evidence of God’s continuing mercies toward us that we may remain faithful and fruitful in the Gospel ministry.

Brent Evers was born and raised in the Kansas City area. He heard the gospel as a high school student and accepted it intellectually. He thought he was a Christian, but wasn’t converted to Christ until God humbled him while in dental school. To be crucified with Christ and to no longer live for self was his only response to having his eyes opened to the light of the glory of the gospel of Christ.
Brent was married to Cari in 1992 and the Lord has blessed them with three children: Malory, Reid & Courtney. Brent and Cari had a passion for evangelism and were involved with “seeker” churches for several years early in their marriage. But through a series of events, their eyes were opened to a higher view of God’s sovereignty, particularly in the area of salvation. They started attending Faith Community Church in 2003 and have been blessed by the teaching, the fellowship, and the reverence for Christ and His word in this body of Christ. Brent helps oversee the Fellowship Group Ministry and is an integral part of Faith Christian Academy.
