Dr. Tony Evans Celebrates New Marriage

Dr. Tony Evans, 74, is a widely respected pastor, author and speaker. In September, he announced his engagement to Dr. Carla Crummie, asking congregants for prayer during what is a “sensitive time” as he approached the anniversary of the death of his wife, Lois, who passed away at the end of 2019.

In April 2019, Evans shared online that while Lois “has been a cancer-free patient under care for a while,” her gallbladder cancer had returned. That October, he requested urgent prayer when chemotherapy and radiation were no longer treatment options. Lois Evans passed away in December 2019. 

In his announcement about his engagement, Evans said, “As I come up to the fourth year of the loss of Lois, my wife of 49 1/2 years, it is a tender time. There are reminders everywhere of her life and of her influence on me, my family and this ministry.”

The pastor, who shared the news while surrounded by his children, Priscilla Shirer, Jonathan Evans, Anthony Evans Jr. and Crystal Evans Hurst, emphasized the impact that Lois had on his life and ministry.

“We are a very close family, and all that has happened in my life, family, church, Urban Alternative, books, tapes, everything, has been defined by [Lois],” he said, “so we’ve had over these four years the ups and downs and the roller coaster of emotions, sometimes high, sometimes low, but it comes with it.”
