After receiving a mandate from the Lord for world harvest, Tony founded Destiny World Outreach in 1991. Destiny World Outreach is a national and international ministry with an emphasis on training and equipping 21st century leaders, both in churches and the marketplace. The primary means for accomplishing that mandate is being done through Destiny Conferences, Business Summits, The Destiny Network and Destiny Leadership Development Resources.
Having ministered in over 50 nations of the world, Tony and Kathy have had the privilege of training over 120,000 leaders. The passion of their life is to awaken people to the God-purposed potential that is inside of them and to equip them to fulfill that call. Known as a gifted communicator, the Word is preached with strong conviction and passion, challenging each listener to reach beyond mediocrity and toward a life filled with success and significance.
Tony was born and raised in the state of Virginia, where his family has been in ministry for many years. He received his educational training at Old Dominion University in Norfolk, VA, and Southeastern College in Lakeland, Florida. He also received a Master of Ministry in Leadership from Southwestern Christian University in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Tony and Kathy now reside in Oklahoma City, OK and are Senior Pastors of The Gate Church. They have three daughters: Holly, Lindsey and Amanda.
Tony was ordained as Bishop over the Destiny Network in 2000 and continues to lead the network of ministers and churches.
