Education: Pastor Tony is presently a student at The Master’s Seminary in southern California.
Comment to those looking at my sermons: My prayer is that my sermons will cause those who read them to draw closer to the Lord and dig deeper into God’s Word for themselves. Never take my word, or any other pastor’s word about what the Scriptures say without first looking to the Scriptures yourself to see if what you are being taught is true. Be Bereans!

Something funny that happened while preaching: One Sunday I preached at a church where I had a beautfiul picturesque window overlooking a lake, to my back. During an important point in the sermon I watched as the congregation’s eyes slowly tracked from my left to my right. A young man who came to church at the invitation of one of his high school friends decided to walk along the very narrow ledge outside the window, from one end to the other. During the same sermon, several crows decided they would repeatedly fly into the window for fun.
What I want on my tombstone: "A man who loves his Lord, loved his family, and loved shepherding one of God’s flocks."
