We invite you to learn more about Saint Paul’s Episcopal Church – a welcoming and friendly community of Christians in Evansville, Indiana. Saint Paul’s is a historic parish, formed more than 150 years ago. We are proud of our roots and heritage; we are also excited about who we are now and who we are becoming. The Book of Common Prayer describes (the) mission of the Church in this way: “The mission of the Church is to restore all people to unity with God and each other in Christ… The Church pursues its mission as it prays and worships, proclaims the Gospel, and promotes justice, peace, and love… The Church carries out its mission through the ministry of all its members.” (BCP 1979 p. 855) If you are looking for a church home, we would encourage you to join us for worship.
God’s peace be with you, St. Paul’s Vestry
St. Paul’s Welcomes
The Reverend Larry Minter
The Reverend Larry Minter sent the congregation the following letter:
Jane and I are busy unpacking our new apartment in Evansville and learning to find our way around. We really enjoy what we see, and we look forward to our time at St. Paul’s. My work will be full time and so we will have an apartment in Evansville even though we keep our home in Louisville, Kentucky as our permanent address.
I am a native of Oklahoma, but since moving to Louisville in my twenties, I have called Kentucky home. Jane is a native of Louisville, where we were married in 1980.
Our daughter Anna and her husband Michael are traveling in Europe right now, sending us pictures and messages showing all the good times they are having. When they return, I am sure they will want to see our new home and parish in Evansville. They live and work in Louisville, and we enjoy having them close by.
I have served parishes since 1988, and in 2008 I began serving the Church in specialized interim ministry. Most recently, I served two years as interim rector of Christ Church, Hudson, Ohio, a small city between Akron and Cleveland. Prior to my time in Ohio, I was interim rector of St. John’s, Lafayette, Indiana. It was there that I learned to appreciate the Diocese of Indianapolis and the quality of life enjoyed here by the clergy. I very much look forward to my return to the diocese and the opportunity to renew acquaintance with so many colleagues.
I will be busy unpacking my office during the first week of August and learning to find my way around. Most importantly, I look forward to meeting all of you at St. Paul’s. The interim period is an exciting time of new beginnings and a time to prepare for a bright future. I looking forward to learning all that is going on in God’s Name at St. Paul’s.

As Christians, we can, in Christ, share his love with others through our good acts. God has chosen and equipped us to be his instruments of support, service, and compassion. As C. S. Lewis wrote, “Good and evil both increase at compound interest. That is why the little decisions you and I make every day are of such infinite importance. The smallest good act today is the capture of a strategic point from which, a few months later, you may be able to go on to victories you never dreamed of.” In essence, God uses the small things that we do and multiples them into something significant. Paul wrote, “Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us” (Ephesians 3:20).
