Mark Evens

Mark EvensMark Evens will receive his Masters of Divinity degree from Starr King School for the Ministry in May 2005 after completing an eleven month internship at the First Unitarian Church of Dallas. He plans to pursue a vocation in parish ministry. Mark includes among his current interests tithing and generosity, policy governance, embodiment and metaphor in theology, and the revitalization of the liberal religious voice in the public square. His abiding commitments are to racial and economic justice, humane living, and the continued survival of higher life forms on planet Earth.

Born in Kansas, Mark grew up marginally Catholic on the margins of Detroit. He received a Bachelor of Arts in Biology with honors from Brown University, then lived 18 years in Northern California working as a technical writer. Since 1989 he has been an active member of the First Unitarian Church of Oakland. For recreation and spirit renewal, he enjoys a variety of self-propelled locomotory behaviors including running, swimming, and biking. He most frequently encounters the Divine in wild nature, conversations that matter, music, playing with children of all ages, and well-crafted worship. He aspires to settle down with an as yet to be identified partner and raise children.
