Growing up in the Bronx in New York City, Tony was often surrounded by drugs and violence. After losing his father at the age of seven, he was raised by his single mother. As a teenager, he got involved with street activity. One day he was invited to an outreach where he heard about the gospel and the love of God. It was that night that he realized his life needed something different that the streets were not giving him. Tony put his trust in the Lord that night and gave his life to Jesus Christ. Tony later received the call to ministry and began to preach at the age of sixteen.
After graduating from bible college, Tony and Elisha served as associate pastors heading out the student ministries department for four years just outside Philadelphia. In 2004, Tony and Elisha started their evangelistic ministry traveling across the nation as the featured speaker at conferences, camps & conventions for the next seven years before being called to starting this work in Lewisburg, PA.
For over 20 years, Tony has been preaching about the life-changing message of hope, healing, forgiveness and purpose found in Jesus Christ alone. He speaks with a deep passion and conviction. Pastor Tony and Elisha are lead pastors of our thriving church and have two boys and a little girl. They started Freedom Life Church in 2011 with a handful of families and have watched many lives changed for God's glory.
