Adam Gray, Lead Pastor

Adam returned to St. Petersburg with a vision for a church that is deeply committed to loving our neighbors as ourselves. He dreams of a church where everyone knows that they are welcomed, affirmed, and loved. He brings his experience from many years of pastoral ministry in churches both large and small, formal and contemporary, to help Circle of Faith form its unique model of ministry and style of worship.

Phil Miller-Evans, Senior Pastor

Phil has been pastoring in St. Petersburg for nearly 20 years. He brings a passion for social justice, and a commitment to reforming the church. Phil loves that Circle of Faith is intergenerational and intersectional, welcoming people from every background and stage of faith.


Courtney Jones, Associate Pastor

Courtney is stepping into a pastoral role at Circle of Faith, after many years serving in churches that did not recognize the pastoral gifts of women. Courtney runs the day to day operations of the church, oversees the ministry to children, and shares in the work of preaching, teaching, and pastoral care.


Janel Miller-Evans, Associate Pastor

Janel is both an ordained minister and a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW). She oversees the ministry of pastoral care, and shares in the work of preaching and teaching.
