Richland, Washington USA — Conviction and purpose are what guide the life and career of healer and speaker Evan Mehlenbacher. Growing up in a family that practiced spiritual healing, it was natural for Evan to choose a life of helping others find spiritual answers to their everyday problems.

After receiving a BA in economics from Stanford University, Evan joined the family business — a large farming venture in Washington State that included apple, plum, and cherry orchards. Along with the daily challenges of operating a business, Evan was on a spiritual pursuit for answers to such questions as, “What makes life worth living? How can I be of help to others?”

A highlight for Evan was seeing the effect of prayer at work in his daily life — in resolving conflict among personnel on the ranch, learning how to run a business successfully, overcoming threats to health, and helping others. While farming, he was asked to visit an elderly woman who was almost immobilized by arthritis. Evan sat and prayed with her. The woman soon reported a lessening of pain and stiffness. She was so impressed with her ability to walk freely again that she told her friends. People started to call Evan to pray for them, and his public practice of healing through the power of prayer was born.

Five years after graduating from Stanford he married, made a career change, and began the full-time practice of Christian Science healing. Today Evan travels widely inspiring audiences with spiritual perspective that helps them find better health, live a happier life, and improve the world they live in.

He is a practitioner and teacher of Christian Science. Evan and his wife Kathy have two college-aged children and live in Richland, Washington.

Lecture Titles

Live Internet Webinar Lecture: The healing perspective of Christian Science

Reach expanded and new audiences in your community through the web.

I give this webinar lecture from my office through an Internet conference service which has a live video feed for me to speak directly to your audience and includes chat tools that allow me to interact with users during the broadcast.  Participants can ask me questions and receive real time answers.
Participants can log in from their home or gather in groups around a single computer (perhaps connected to a large TV).  I can speak with individuals at their respective computers, to groups meeting in a Reading room, Sunday school, or other gathering place, or to a combination of both.  The possibilities are endless.
My topic is, “The healing perspective of Christian Science.”  This talk explains how the spiritual perspective of Christian Science leads to more effective healing through prayer.  It brings out Mary Baker Eddy’s unique discovery of how to heal like Jesus Christ taught to heal, and it clears up many frequent misunderstandings people have about the practice of Christian Science.
