We are excited to announce that both of our deacon candidates, Andrew Evans and Larry Wormald, were elected as Deacons of Redeemer at our congregational meeting on May 28th. Please plan to join us during middle hour on June 11th for the ordination and installation of our new Deacons. See the bios for Mr. Evans and Mr. Wormald below if you would like to learn more about your new Deacon-Elects.
Our New Deacons
Andrew Evans currently lives in Anaheim with his wife, Kim, daughter Logan (2), and a new baby due to arrive in June. Andrew was born in Houston, TX, but has spent most of his life in Southern California between LA and Orange County. He currently runs a financial planning practice based in Irvine, CA.
Andrew was raised in a Christian home and was blessed to be surrounded by godly parents during his upbringing. As a young man, time at Biola University challenged Andrew to further understand and study the meaning of following Christ and what it means to be living in communion with Him. Redeemer has been an incredible blessing to his family and Andrew humbly looks forward to serving and loving the members of this community.
Larry Wormald lives in Irvine with his wife Binky and step daughter Kassandra. He has two grown sons, Ryan James and Christopher Steven. He was born in Pasadena and grew up in Laguna Beach. Larry spent twenty years in the Lake Arrowhead area working at a Christian retreat center and later moved to Orange County to work with Calvary Chapel facilities, serving as an HVAC tech and building maintenance.
He became a Christian when he was 18 years old. He started going to Redeemer around 2001. He has been actively involved in community groups, and was a community group leader in the South OC area. He is also a member of the sound team, working closely with elder Carl Messenger. Larry is looking forward to serving in the additional capacity of a deacon, to be able to help out the church and its members in a more personal way.
