Kyle Evans is one of the newest members of the Episcopal Community Services staff. Kyle will serve as Chaplain, supporting the ECS mission and vision in four primary ways. Kyle will offer pastoral care to all staff and those who ECS serves. Kyle will also work with the advocacy team, raising awareness about the political factors, systems and agencies that support or undermine the rights of marginalized communities. Additionally, Kyle will help to coordinate volunteers. Finally, Kyle will partner with Ken Anderson in visiting the churches of the Episcopal Diocese of Pennsylvania to share the story of ECS, with the expectation of fostering deeper relationships with the parishes, including financial commitment and volunteerism.
Born and raised in Washington, DC, Kyle has spent a significant part of her adult life in the Philadelphia area. Based in Bucks County, Kyle and her family have been members of Trinity Episcopal Church of Solebury for almost 30 years. Kyle has a long history of work with youth and young adults, always with a focus on service and partnership in communities of the underserved. This has particularly been the case in the West and North Philadelphia corridor. Kyle has also been committed to similar efforts in Kenya and, as a Missioner, in the Episcopal Diocese of Haiti.
Kyle received a BA from Dickinson College, Carlisle, PA and was awarded a certificate in youth ministry from Princeton Seminary. Kyle has just completed her first year of formation to become a vocational deacon in the Episcopal Diocese of Pennsylvania. Kyle is married, with 3 grown sons and 2 granddaughters.
