Morris + Jackie Conklin
Whether serving as a missionary in Portugal for 20 years teaching at a Bible School or pastoring in South Dakota, Morris Conklin has been preaching salvation through God's grace to people who have never heard, which has been his passion since the middle of eighth grade when he felt called to ministry. He started as the Care Pastor at Evangel in August 2014, with past experience pastoring many churches since 1970. He and his wife Jackie were married in 1969, and they have five grown sons, five daughters-in-law and eleven grandchildren. Morris enjoys beekeeping, wood working, and reading. He also wants to hike “Quartzite” on the border between North and South Dakota, taking photos of the mile and half-mile posts.
