Following his discharge from the United States Army, Evans moved to Texas where he earned an Associate of Arts degree from Southwestern Assemblies of God College.

At age 11, he had what he describes as a dramatic encounter with Jesus Christ, during which he received assurance of God’s love for him and a promise that he would be used by God.

Corrie ten Boom house
Mike Evans purchased and restored the Corrie ten Boom house in 1983. The Corrie ten Boom Fellowship is a non-profit 501(c) 3 corporation governed by a board of directors. It gains no direct or indirect funding from the State of Israel, nor do any of Evans’organizations. He has served as the chairman without salary for decades.
Upon purchasing and restoring the house, Mike Evans created the Corrie ten Boom Fellowship, an organization that follows in the tradition of the ten Boom family by continuing to pray for the peace of Jerusalem. The Fellowship encourages Christians to exercise their faith by helping the Jewish people, praying for them and for the peace of Jerusalem in accord with the scriptural mandate in Psalm 122:6.
Jerusalem Prayer Team
Mike Evans began the Jerusalem Prayer Team in 2002 to unite people in intercessory prayer for Israel and to develop a platform from which to speak out to world leaders at UN conferences, peace summits, etc., on behalf of Israel. From that platform Evans has met with dozens of heads of state, including being invited to a State visit by President Barzani from Kurdistan. He has met with dozens of world leaders, including President Cristiani of El Salvador, the president of the Philippines, President Musevani of Uganda, as well as many foreign ministers, ambassadors, prime ministers and kings. He has worked closely with Israel’s prime ministers for three decades.
As an advisor to Prime Minister Menachem Begin, he recommended Benjamin Netanyahu for his first government post. His recommendation followed a meeting with the future prime minister after his brother, Jonathan, had been shot in the back while leading the raid on Entebbe in Uganda. Benjamin Netanyahu is now serving his second term as prime minister of Israel.
The Prayer Team also raises funds to meet humanitarian needs of the Jewish people in Israel providing coats, blankets and home repairs for those in need. The ministry has a website that includes articles about the people of Israel, the problems being faced by her leaders and other pertinent topics.
More than 300 national Christian leaders, including Pat Robertson, Tim LaHaye, Joel Osteen and John Maxwell are supporters of the Jerusalem Prayer Team. It receives no funding from the State of Israel and its official statement says it “believes that God loves Arabs in the Bible as much as the Jews.” [press release, January 2009] Author and Speaker Evans has written extensively on the Middle East, Christian Living, Prophecy and Iraq. His works include 42 fiction and non-fiction books.

Dr. Evans predicted a battle between America and radical Islam in his book, Israel: America’s Key to Survival in 1980. In his book, The Jerusalem Scroll, written in 1999, he also predicted that the first attack would target the World Trade Center in New York City and its tallest building.
