Born and raised in the Chicagoland area, Pastor Anthony has been ministering and preaching since 1999. After a major encounter with Jesus Christ at the age of 20 and surrendering a potential career in Chicago theater, Anthony decided to serve the Lord. From that moment on, there has been no return and no regrets. During his studies at DePaul University, he founded a campus ministry, Apostolic Ministry International. For the next 2 years, he evangelized and grew that ministry and reached hundreds of students in Chicago, IL. From there, Anthony became the Youth Pastor of Bartlett United Pentecostal Church and founded SUB30 Youth Ministries. With a burden for high-school and college students, he helped start a second College Campus Ministry at the College of DuPage, in Glen Ellyn, IL. Having left a godless lifestyle of drugs and alcohol to follow Jesus Christ, Anthony had a burden for teens and young adults walking the same road. Early in his walk with the Lord, Anthony heard the call of God to reach Chicago Metro with the word of his testimony and the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Today, he and his wife, Layna, are obeying that call and have established TLC (The Life Church), a church with passion and vision to impact the northwest suburbs of Chicago.
