God called Tony into his kingdom when he was 4 years old. Since that day, through Jesus Christ and by the power of the Holy Spirit, God has kept him from stumbling and he joyfully looks forward to one day being in the presence of his glory (Jude 1, 20–21, 24–25). He was blessed to grow up in a Christian home that valued regular participation in the local church. Through the church, God used many mentors to disciple him and point him to Jesus.

His wife, Heidi, and their children Evan (2001), Addie (2005), and Isaiah (2008) started worshiping at Bethlehem’s North Campus in 2012 when Tony began the MDiv program at Bethlehem College & Seminary (graduated 2016). Their family greatly enjoys serving in various areas at Bethlehem's North Campus, including Tony becoming an elder (January 2019) and his current role as Interim Director for Children & Family Discipleship, North (September 2019).

In the past, Tony served as a database administrator for 20 years at two different companies in Minneapolis and more recently worked for The Gospel Coalition.

Tony love meditating on God’s word, is intrigued by anything science-related, and is eager to try his hand at home repair and remodel projects.
