Tony grew up in Elkhart County. Even though education and jobs took him elsewhere for a time, he decided to return to Elkhart in 2016 to reconnect with family, friends and the larger community.
Tony worked in construction for about 10 years before deciding to go to college. He attended Hesston College’s Pastoral Ministries program where he fell in love with education — especially Mennonite education. After finishing at Hesston, he decided to finish his bachelor’s degree at Eastern Mennonite University. Upon graduation, he moved to Sarasota, Florida, where he taught middle school Bible at Sarasota Christian School until he returned to Elkhart and began working in development at AMBS.
In his spare time, Tony enjoys gardening, aquaponics, spending time with family and friends, hiking, reading and playing soccer, and is always up for an adventure.
