Sunday School Superintendent
Mahatma Ghandi once said, “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others,” and Sandra Evins has found herself dedicated to a life of service to God as well as mankind.
Affectionately known as “Sister Evins”, Sandra Marie Williams was born to the late Aaron and Barbara Williams of New Orleans, LA. Sister Evins, the oldest of three children, was reared in Bunkie, LA and Reverend Barry Williams is her only surviving sibling. Sister Evins is the widow of the late Deacon Wilbert Evins and the mother of the late Felicia and Vernon Phillips.
Sis. Evins has been a faithful servant at the St. Matthew Missionary Baptist Church under the leadership of Pastor Leroy Lacy, Jr since June 2003. Sis. Evins loves the Word of God so much that it is her utmost passion to teach it to others. This love of God’s Word led her to the College of Biblical Studies where she completed two courses entitled, Bible Study Methods and Principals of Biblical Teaching. Sis. Evins currently serves as the Sunday School Superintendent where she is responsible for overseeing the entire Sunday School program as well as teaching to effectively spread the truth of God’s Word. Her commitment to St. Matthew’s Mission Statement, Sandra strives to foster understanding through communication by sharing and receiving information from Pastor Lacy, students, members and teachers. She also makes every effort to create a team environment by giving members the right opportunities and encouragement for personal and spiritual growth.
In addition to her duties as a Superintendent, Sis. Evins teaches the Women’s Sunday School Class and is an active servant within the Women’s Ministry as well as the New Member In-take, Care, & Concern Ministry.
Throughout her walk with the Lord, Sis. Evins has always been encouraged by a Scripture found in Jeremiah 29:11 which says, “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” She uses that verse to guide her as she mentors young women and others in her spare time. Ask anyone and they’ll tell you she always puts the needs of others over her own and is always available for prayer and words of encouragement.
Sis. Evins has lived in Houston since 1970, and she is employed at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, where she has served for 30 years.
