Peggy Evans

Lead Administrative Volunteer at Third Day & Bible Study Leader

Peggy Evans is first a Christian. She received Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior at the age of 12 years in her Church’s Sunday night youth group.

Peggy is a wife, mother, and grandmother.  She and her husband, Jim, have been married for 42 years and have lived in Charlevoix for 21 of those 42 years.  She is the mother of two, a son named Timothy and a daughter named Jamie.   Her daughter-in-law, Marianne, is not just a daughter-in-law, but also a close friend. Peggy has a granddaughter, Becky, who is attending Kettering University.

Peggy worked in the medical field for many years.  She was trained as a trauma technician in Gulfport, Mississippi where she worked in the Emergency Room of Memorial Hospital at Gulfport until her marriage to Jim.  She worked in Gerber Memorial Hospital in Fremont, Michigan, and in the Utilization Department (Surgical Pre-Authorization) in Linwood, New Jersey.  She moved to Charlevoix and began an entirely different career.  Peggy retired in 2005 from Preferred Title Company as a Licensed Title Examiner.

Peggy is a member of First Baptist Church of Charlevoix.  She serves on the Christian Education Committee and is the Teacher/Director of the Children’s Wednesday night program.  She teaches and coordinates the lessons for the preschool through grade six children.  Peggy has been instructed in several programs for youth and has taught and directed in Pro-Teens, Word of Life and Awana.  Teaching children about the Lord Jesus is a driving passion in her life.  Another passion is being a prayer warrior for and with those in need.

Peggy has received instruction and taught several Ladies Bible Studies in church and home settings.  She is also the Group Representative for the TGIM AFG that meets each Monday at Charlevoix Area Hospital.  She has held various leadership and public speaking positions in her organizations and employment.  

Peggy’s goal is to reach others for Christ.  Volunteering at Third Day Ministries is one way that she reaches out to others.  She believes that to reach out is to listen to others, to let them know that they are important; to share a laugh with them, to help them find the help they sometimes need, to be a friend, to love and do it unconditionally.  Volunteering is giving of oneself to others and that is very important to Peggy.
