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.

Testimonials

My favorite testimony of the goodness of God is when were were in Sierra Leone.  Jenni came upstairs and asked me to come pray for one of the students that had passed out.  When I got there I gathered her in my arms and quietly prayed over her healing and the love of the Father.  It took about 10 minutes for her to come back around and she was so ashamed when she did.  I reassured her that it was okay and how much she was loved.  After sending her back to class the principal informed us that she frequently had epileptic seizures and it normally took a very long time for her to wake up.  During the rest of our time she never had another one and I believe she is completely free from that bondage!  God also ministered to the principal because he was so excited about the way she was ministered to giving him a revelation that Jesus moves in the quiet prayers as well as the loud ones.  Glory to God!

Testimonials

We absolutely love Bethel Austin. Every time we go it feels like a big family reunion of the King's kids. The excitement in the lobby before the doors open is palpable. I've never experienced that before. People are actually excited to worship and hear the Word! We have only been going for a few weeks but are excited to call it our church home. I have read some negative reviews on social media and I do suggest that everyone come and check it out for yourselves. I was a little hesitant before attending just because of what I've read and heard but I am SO glad I did not let that be a deterrent! Our family has been so ministered to and blessed at this Church. Thank you Bethel ATX!

My wife had been suffering with a gluten intolerance known as celiac for 15 years and grabbed hold of a testimony in December about someone else getting healed from a food allergy. Without even realizing it, she received her healing and has been eating gluten ever since! Thank you, Jesus!

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!!!

Testimonials

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.
