Board of Directors

Betty McCullough, president, is retired from Samford University's McWhorter School of Pharmacy and is currently a client service consultant for a Minneapolis-based software company.  She chaired St. Andrew's Education Committee through a time of significant growth.  She's also a member of our choir and has taken part in the Vision Team and search committees. 

Andy Haynes, vice-president, and his wife Patti have retired from Tommy Bahama clothing, but retirement is merely a word.  Trained as a Stephen Minister, Andy often leads the Roundtable Discussion class and coordinates the Frank Brown International Songwriters' Festival.

John Boller, treasurer, manages Gulf Shores Realty and is involved in local service organizations.  He and his wife Lynne are also busy with a son at home and other kids stretching from Tennessee to Taiwan.

Susan Coyne has chaired St. Andrew's Fellowship Committee for many years, overseeing such annual events as our birthday party, Thanksgiving dinner, and soup/ chili/ dessert cookoff.

Susanna Lax, a retired teacher, enjoys photography, art, reading, and the Share the Beach program.  She and her husband Orren have a son and a daughter, as well as three grandsons and three granddaughters. Susanna has chaired the Church Council and served on the Fellowship, Music, Nurture, and Outreach Committees as well as taking part in the St. Andrew Women.  Susanna loves St. Andrew's diversity and warmth.  

Herb Malone is President and CEO of Gulf Shores and Orange Beach Tourism, supporting a nearly $5 billion local tourism industry.  Previously he led the Alabama Gulf Coast Area Chamber of Commerce from 1988 to 1993, working to recruit both businesses and guests to the area.  He and Bessie are longtime members of St. Andrew.  

Robert Monk has followed a career in banking with extensive community service.  Here at St. Andrew, he has co-chaired the Outreach Committee with his wife Suzanne; helped to establish Family Promise, a ministry to families temporarily homeless; trained as a Stephen Minister; and served on the Finance Committee.

Chuck Norwood, a longtime member of St. Andrew with his wife Lynn, is one of the country's leading RE/MAX agents.

Nicole Woerner serves as the grants manager for the City of Orange Beach.  A twice-degreed graduate of Auburn University, she can be found at St. Andrew almost every Sunday and Wednesday with her husband Allen and children Katherine, William, and Pilot.
