Confirmed Speakers and Workshops


Tony was born in St. Louis and lived for several years just a few blocks from where New City Fellowship—St. Louis’s office is located.  He graduated from Covenant Seminary in 2006 and he and his family moved to Knoxville Tennessee where Tony served as church-planting pastor for 2 years.  Having lived in the city of St. Louis and for a brief time in Knoxville, Tony and Tanya are both aware of the need for churches that will faithfully enter into God’s call to pursue reconciliation across racial, social, tribal and all other dividing lines.
