Tony and Sara have been Evangel's pastors since July 2003.
Tony's a seasoned leader who finds himself craving the edge-of-the-wedge the older he gets. That's why you'll find him leading an innovative church that's always trying new things and rocking the boat. Both he and Sara are passionate about embracing an out-of-the-box approach to local church while recognizing that we still have to operate within the box. He will hardly ever (try never) find him in a suit and tie, but he'll probably refrain from jumping on the latest trends around skinny-legged jeans and massive beards (though he can play ball if he chooses too!). He loves the cozy living-room feel with a cup of strong coffee in hand while reading a good book with the lighting just right. He's passtionate about mountains and epic stories.
This guy is a lover of Jesus too, and if you hang around him long enough, you just might find it's contagious. He loves the fact that God is bigger than we'll ever be able to comprehend and a mystery unfathomable, yet the same time invites us into a very pratical and meaningful relationship with Him!
Sara is Tony's partner in every way, married to him for 28 years. She carries the vision of the house - no one has a better 30,000-feet-up view. She passionately believes in the potential of the underdog, or the little guys. She's the mother of four adult children (and two son-in-laws), and the beloved Mimi of three beautiful granddaughters. She has a lust-problem with jacked-up trucks and will started head-banging to the likes of Rez Band or Tom Petty.
