Timeline of instances of "evangelical leaders" meeting with Trump

I have tried to trace the photos of different gatherings with Trump in chronological order. Click the link to see the photos. In summary, there are about 49 "evangelical leaders" who have gathered with Trump. About twenty have stayed the same since June 2016 to Oct 2019. Compare below the June 2016 official list of twenty-five, the August 2018 list of those who gathered to celebrate evangelicals and Trump, and the official twenty-five on the Oct 29, 2019 gathering list.

Update: Nov 18, 2019: Mike Evans, from the Friends of Zion Museum in Jerusalem, is part of this Dec 12, 2017 group, holding the plaque for the award "Friends of Zion" (from his organization).  He claims to be a "member of the Trump Faith Initiative, President Trump's evangelical advisory board." The "board" is no longer official but was only something during the campaign as there seems to be legal limitations on the formality of the group while Trump is president. He has NOT been listed among other lists of Trump's evangelicals but his mustachioed face can be seen in some photos. He released a statement on Nov 18, 2019.
