Worship Leader



The late Dr. Lois Evans, our DFJ conference founder, was intentional with living life at its fullest in the good and bad times. Throughout Dr. Evans’ life, she created memory stones” of God’s unfailing love and faithfulness in all seasons, which served as a lifelong anchor of hope amid the rushing floodwaters of life.

During DFJ 2022, we want you to Remember how God has shown you His enduring faithfulness in life’s good, bad and ugly situations. Our desire is for you to meditate on His works and consider what His hands have done. Spread out your hands to Him and thirst for Him like a parched land. Psalm 143:5-6.

What are your memory stones?
