HWA Pastors

Rev. Andrew and Lisa Evanock have been the Senior Pastors of His Way Assembly of God since September 2012.  They have a heart to see people not only set free from the law of sin and death, but equipped as followers of Christ for the work of the ministry.  In 2000, Lisa received her degree in Criminal Justice and went on to take Criminal Law, but realized God had other plans for their future.  Andrew knew they were called into ministry and was told by God that he was to begin pursuing his degree in that.  As a team, they prayerfully determined to follow after God's plan for their lives and not their own.  With their three children, Joshua, Stephen, and Caitlin, they went sight unseen to Valley Forge Christian College where Lisa worked as the Student Ministries Coordinator and as a faculty secretary to the Youth, Children's, Pastoral, and Missions departments. They lived in Pennsylvania until 2004 when they were compelled by God to finish Andrew's ministerial degree at Southeastern University in Florida.  Then in 2012 it was time to come back home to Western New York where they were born and raised.  Rev. Andrew had been licensed and then became ordained by the New York District of the Assemblies of God.  They did not just put on the hat of Senior Pastors lightly or quickly...they have served side by side in all capacity of ministries throughout their 25 years of marriage...from scrubbing the toilets to ministering to all ages and have a love for their local community and congregation.  They also recently became fosterparents to some beautiful little ones as an extension of their ministry.  As pastors of HWA, Andrew and Lisa know that God has a plan and a purpose for this small little community and surrounding areas...and are so excited to see how God is preparing to propel this community into a transformational revival like it has never known.  Whether you are rich or poor or black or white...you are welcomed to come get equipped at HWA.
