Throughout his life, Pastor Anthony has been involved with Adventurers and Pathfinders; various extra curricular programs at Union Springs Academy such as soccer, band (trombone), choir, basketball, National Honor Society, gymnastics, and community service. While at Southern he was part of Gym-Masters, officiated in intramural sports, preached a full evangelistic series in Cagayan De Oro, Philippines, and spent a school year as an associate dean student missionary in New Zealand.

Pastor Anthony spent many summers at Camp Cherokee in the New York Conference where he lead out in numerous activities. Starting with maintenance and painting, he ended up as Waterfront Director, Boys Director, and Assistant Camp Director.

Hired by the Kansas-Nebraska Conference in June 2016, Midland's new chaplain is excited to be working in the Chapel Oaks church in the Kansas City community, building relationships and leading young minds to Christ through relationships and meaningful interactions.
