In memoriam: Evan Collins of FMC Santa Barbara

February 3, 2022 | Featured, News

With heavy hearts we share with you that Evan Collins has passed away.  Evan has faithfully and selfless served his local church (Santa Barbara Free Methodist Church), our conference, and our denomination.  As a Board of Administration Member, Property and Finance Committee Member and Chair, Management Group Chair, and both Annual Conference and General Conference delegate, he was instrumental in helping us be more financially astute and in building our revenue, advancing the kingdom for generations to come.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, February 12 at 1:00PM at Azusa Pacific University in Upper Turner Campus Center.  In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be directed to APU’s University Fund to support student scholarships.  Gifts can be mailed to: Azusa Pacific University, Office of University Advancement, PO Box 7000, Azusa, CA 91702, or given online at in memory of Evan Collins.

Please join us in prayer for his wife, Juanita, and the entire Collins Family.

Superintendent Team,

Charles, Fraser, And Jon
