Pastors Joaquin & Renée Evans, Our Senior Leaders
Our History

Joaquin and Renée Evans were a part of Bethel Redding’s pastoral team for many years, and learned and gleaned so much before planting Bethel Austin in 2017. They are excited for this new chapter and new adventure as God has called them to take what they have learned in the last season and pour it into the next.

Joaquin is known for leadership and a strong ministry in the things of the Spirit, and served in many roles at Bethel Church, including School of Ministry Pastor, Healing Rooms Director and oversight of Bethel Activation Ministries (community of itinerating ministers).

Renée is known for her entrepreneurialism, creativity, and her real and vulnerable communication style with a ministry history that goes back to Hillsong Church in Sydney, Australia.


Our 11 yr old daughter had an ankle injury that prevented her from participating in her dance class last week. On Saturday night, at church, her friends prayed for her. She felt the pain radiate up to her knee, and then it DISAPPEARED! She is HEALED and ready for dance class today!!!


Just wanted to say I was listening ‘randomly’ to your podcasts whilst journeying up through Scotland towards The Highlands.... I felt Wisdom speaking through you, and The Father planting fresh seeds in my heart of His goodness and His good plans for me.

Thank you for the beauty of your DNA and your hearts. Both of which have impacted me.
