Our Vision:

Evergreen Presbyterian Church is a vibrant, affirming, and progressive congregation fully engaged in our community and the campus life of Rhodes College. We seek God's truth through our questioning of, and inquiry into, God’s Word, and through our involvement in our community as disciples of Christ.


Who we are...

  • We are actively involved, lifelong learners who see intellectual curiosity as a gift from God.
  • We are determined to wrestle with tough issues of faith and contemporary life.
  • We are open, affirming and non-exclusive; we welcome all our sisters and brothers.
  • We come from all over Memphis and from the Rhodes community.
  • We are re-imagining what it means to be a church community and to be relevant in contemporary culture.
  • We are led by an imaginative, energetic pastor and session (our leadership team), both of whom embrace this vision, provide dynamic leadership and care for the congregation.
  • We are financially stable through the regular giving of our growing membership.
  • We as individuals are committed to one another and to the mission of Evergreen.


Let us love one another, because love is from God; everyone who loves is born of God and knows God.
— 1 John 4: 7
