...
JOPLIN, Mo. - Joshua Evans opened the doors of his church in downtown Joplin on Dec. 18, 2010.
...
Evans and the congregation of about 30 members still hold their 11 a.m. Sunday services, now at God's Resort, at the corner of 15th and Pearl streets.
...
Evans said that most of his members joined Solace after being hurt or frustrated by their previous church experiences.
"Our goal is to be real, organic and honest with everybody," said Evans, 31, who grew up in charismatic churches and previously served as a youth pastor at Community Chapel in Neosho. "We are not interested in taking anybody from any other church. We just let them know that we have a heart for God, and are not just trying to sell them something or add them to our registry and make them another mark in our book."
Evans said that while he was growing up, he became disenfranchised with church, even though he felt he had been called to the ministry.
"To me, church became more about trying to sell people something Ñ sell them on the idea of religion, the idea of Christianity, on Jesus or worship," he said. "It just stopped seeming real to me, and I became frustrated with it. I did not realize what was happening, but it made me very bitter and cynical, as well as judgmental and critical."
In trying to balance those feelings with his call to preach, Evans said it put him in a dilemma.
However, following a discussion with an Anchor Mission pastor at a church service in Nashville, Tenn., Evans' attitude took another turn.
That pastor presented the idea to Evans that if he was called to minister, he should consider planting a church.
"I told him there are already too many churches, and I am sick of church," Evans replied. "Then, he said, 'You need to plant one that is going to be right for people like you.'"
So on July 17, 2010, Evans held his first Solace Church service out of his home. At that point, he said, the frustration and bitterness over other church operations had disappeared. He said he came to the realization that there was a place for them to do what they do, but it was just not for him.
As Evans and his congregation seek to find another permanent place to worship, you can count on one thing: The emphasis will continue to be on the people who meet there.

Jarvice G. Evans
Mr. J. G. Evans, pastor of the M. E. church at Wenona, was born in Evans township, Marshall County, December 19, 1833.The sons and daughters of Joshua Evans were all reared in toil.Joshua Evans allowed no idlers about his home.So, at the age of 16, J.G. was given his time and allowed to do for himself, that he could secure a greatly coveted education.His father could have helped him, but he did not think it best to do so, any farther than to give him his time, believing that it would be better for the boy to work his own way, which he did, first by farming and afterward by teaching to get money to pay expenses while going to school.J.G. received his education at the Peoria Wesleyan Seminary, Judson College, Mt. Palatine, and at the Ohio Wesleyan University.
Influenced by what he has always regarded as bad advice, he left college before graduating to enter the ministry, going to the Rock River Conference in 1854.He commenced preaching in 1854.Still pursuing his studies, Quincy College conferred upon him the A.M. in 1870, and at a still later date the Doctor of Divinity.He received a degree of LL.D. from the Chicago College of Science.
J. G. continued in the pastorate until 1872, and was then elected president of Hedding College at Abingdon, Illinois between 1872 and 1878, and again elected in 1889.In 1878 was elected president of Chaddock College, Quincy.He resigned during the year and returned to the pastorate.
He served the Central Illinois Conference as secretary for six years, and was, in 1876, a delegate to the General Conference, Baltimore.He then was honored with the chairmanship of the committee on Temperance and Prohibition at the General Conference in Omaha.He was also president of the Central Illinois Conference Temperance Society from its organization.He published a number of lectures and sermons in pamphlet form, including "Pulpit and Politics," "Tobacco," "Thanksgiving Discourse," "Funeral Sermon of Lincoln," and several others.
