Worship artist Anthony Evans performs at CBU chapel

Riverside, Calif. (Nov. 27, 2018) – “His Word says He is greater, He is bigger and He will work all things together for our good and that’s what I believe,” Anthony Evans told a chapel audience at California Baptist University on Nov. 27

Evans is an accomplished Christian artist who has released seven albums and performed worldwide. Evans also is a consultant for the Bachelor of Arts Worship Arts and Ministry program at CBU and an adjunct professor of worship arts.

In 2012, Evans was a contestant on “The Voice and later returned to the show as a talent producer.

In chapel, Evans performed songs such as “See You Again,” “My Heart Is Now Your Home,” “Ever Be” and “Greater Is He.”  Evans also took time to share about a difficult time in his life that included a broken relationship.

“I wanted to be real and authentic and I felt nuts having to stand on the stage and sing about the faithfulness of God and not feel it at all,” said Evans, who was a worship leader at the time.

Evans confided with his dad that he felt left, lost and abandoned during this time in his life.

“He said, ‘Anthony, you have to realize your feelings do not have intellect. They can’t think, so you have to bounce your feelings off of the Word of God,’” Evans said.

His dad read Philippians 1:6 (ESV): “And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.”

“He told me, ‘this is true, whether you feel it or not. You have to keep moving in the direction you know is true and your feelings will eventually catch up with your feet,’” Evans said.

Evans told the students they are dealing with a lot in college, with various feelings and a culture that wants them to listen to everything other than the Word of God.

“My encouragement is to dig deep and understand that God’s truth is true whether you feel it or not,” Evans said.
