 Meet the Acts Board
  Tom Dunn
Tom Dunn is currently a resident of Mooresville, NC, but spent most of his life in the Philadelphia, PA, area. He fulfilled a 4-year ROTC commitment to the United States Air Force after graduating from Grove City College in 1969. Upon separation from
the military, Tom and his wife Tina returned to Philadelphia to work for Huntington Laboratories, a chemical company supplying products to the hospital community. Tom earned an MBA from Temple University and ultimately became the president of one of
Huntington’s subsidiary companies. Following the sale of the company in 1996, Tina and Tom went to a Christian college in Indiana for what was to be a “short-term” ministry. They stayed at Grace College for almost 20 years, where Tom ultimately became the Chief Operating Officer and retired in 2016. In addition to Acts, Tom volunteers with two other Christian entities; one that reaches out to businessmen in the marketplace, and another to the homeless in Dallas, TX, via a soup kitchen/bus ministry. Tom serves as a member of the Audit & Compliance, Human Resources and Spiritual Life Committees.
Why did you decide to serve on the Acts board?
“I first came on the board of Acts in the mid-1980s and had followed the development of the initial Acts communities through the Church of the Open Door. I was impressed with the way the organization implemented the concepts of Christ’s love and kindness in its care for seniors. I greatly value the chance to serve seniors and work with the dedicated group of Acts management and fellow board members.”
Robert B. Evans
Robert (Bob) Evans is a relatively new resident (2018) of Plantation Estates in Matthews,
NC. However, he has served on the Acts Board of Directors since 2007. Bob had a nearly 40-year career in fixed income investment management focusing on municipal bonds.
His positions took him to Lancaster, PA, Chicago, Houston and Charlotte where he retired from Wachovia Bank, NA as a Senior Vice President and Managing Director of Evergreen Investments. Bob is a member of the Finance & Investment and Clinical Affairs Committees.
Bob graduated from The Pennsylvania State University in 1962 with a B.A. in Economics and was commissioned an Ensign in the United States Navy. He served 4 years on active duty, primarily aboard destroyers where he attained the qualifications for designation as a Surface Warfare Officer. He remained active in the Naval Reserves and retired as a Captain with 27 years of service. Bob has been active in
his church, St. Stephen United Methodist Church, as a member of the Chancel Choir and, since 2006, Chairman of the Permanent Endowment Fund Committee. He has also held a seat on Church Council and the Long-Range Planning Committee.
Why did you decide to serve on the Acts board?
“One of Acts’ scriptural foundations is the calling of seven to serve the widows so that those who preached could concentrate on their calling (Acts: 6). Among that group was Stephen. As a member of a church named for Stephen, I felt it was providential that I was asked to serve, and I gladly accepted that opportunity and responsibility.”
