“I think the Lord has tremendous compassion for people struggling in marriage.”
Pastor Jimmy Evans recounts his journey from being a “creep who cheated on his wife right before they got married” to pastoring a church for over 30 years, celebrating his 50th wedding anniversary, and seeing countless marriages rescued and restored.
He’s the Founder and President of XO Marriage, a ministry devoted to helping couples thrive in strong and fulfilling marriages and host of “the Tipping Point” show. During his service as Senior Pastor of Trinity Fellowship Church in Amarillo, Texas, where he now serves as Apostolic Elder, the church grew from 900 to over 10,000 members.
Dino and Jimmy dig into many different aspects of marriage, leadership, and the end times.
Their discussion includes:
- How to trust the Lord’s timing when you feel “passed by” and work through feelings of inferiority
- The importance of understanding the end times properly so you aren’t facing these times in fear
- Three important things pastors should be paying attention to in their local church
- The view that the church is the only institution on Earth that can teach people about marriage
“I can change the world with Jesus and marriage.”
Jimmy believes that Jesus and marriage go hand in hand for people’s success, fulfillment, and health. He emphasizes the importance of pastors preaching about marriage because it is transformative and foundational – and a way to actually be relevant and not just “cool.”
He also leads a ministry to educate people about the end times and contextualize what’s happening in the world. “30% of the Bible is prophetic and this is the most prophesied period of time in human history.” He believes if you understand the end times properly, you get excited and comforted, not fearful.
