DALLAS, TX (AURN News) — Pastor Tony Evans, the renowned author and pastor, recently tied the knot with Dr. Carla Crummie in a private ceremony. The news of their union was shared with the world through a statement posted on several social media accounts affiliated with Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship, the church where Pastor Evans serves.
The marriage journey began back in September with Evans’ surprise engagement announcement. Crummie served in his ministry “The Urban Alternative” as a Kindness Ambassador and was previously married to Rev. Robert Crummie who served as President of Carver College and pastor at Mt. Calvary Missionary Baptist Church until his death in 2020.
The engagement announcement earlier this fall, also served as a poignant moment as Evans paid tribute to his late wife, Lois, who battled gallbladder cancer and passed away in 2019. Pastor Evans commemorated the enduring love they shared during their 49 and a half years of marriage.
The wedding news, conveyed this past weekend, brought additional joy to the Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship community. “Marriage is a blessing from God, and it brings us great joy to see our pastor blessed in this beautiful way,” the church expressed in a statement.
“The couple is excited to continue serving the Lord together, supported by faith, love, and the prayers of our church family,” the statement continued.
The Evans wed in a private ceremony with family and close friends.
