About Tony
  • Education: Formal and life.
  • Experience: I'm learning how to forget what I'm an expert in.
  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: Every sermon is personalized to who I’m speaking to, so have fun adapting it to your crew.
  • Sermon or series that made a difference: Just about anything I’ve heard by: Bud Bence Bo Boshers Steven Furtick Louie Giglio Bill Hybels Dan Kimball Rick Lawrence Larry Mitchell Rich Mullins John Ortberg Andy Stanley Ray VanDerlaan Dan Webster Mike Yaconelli
  • One of my favorite illustrations: My own bumbling through life is illustration enough.
  • Family: My family rocks. I don't deserve them. We're on a journey with God, and it's always growing and expanding.
  • What my parents think of my sermons: Proud... in a parental sort of way.
  • What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: Amazed at how much I’ve grown in knowing nothing to knowing something, to knowing that while I know something I really still know nothing.
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: Never let your metaphors take over the content of the message.
  • Books that have had an impact: The Bondage Breaker by Neil Anderson A Tale Of Three Kings by Gene Edwards Waking The Dead by John Eldredge Who You Are When No One Is Looking by Bill Hybels The Emerging Church by Dan Kimball Legacy by Rich Mullins God Is Closer Than You Think by John Ortberg The Life You’ve Always Wanted by John Ortberg The Message by Eugene Peterson Visioneering by Andy Stanley Rich Mullins: An Arrow Pointing To God by James Bryan Smith The Seven Checkpoints by Andy Stanley and Stuart Hall
  • Hobbies: I enjoy most anything creative... writing, guitar, gourmet cooking, creating songs, telling odd jokes, making innovative videos and "the next thing."
  • If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: Right now... take your next step with Jesus.
  • Something funny that happened while preaching: I nudged my music stand to fall over once to get the attention of some students who were talking and wouldn’t stop. As the weeks and months went by, the story became a legend that I lifted it high over my head and launched it across the room.
  • What I want on my tombstone: This space for rent

    Much like a circus tent move from town to town, so does Jesus "tabernacle" with us. What happens when we lean a bit further into three key events in Jesus’ life when He did move about on this earth? What might that tell us about God? His love? You and
