I began as Lead Pastor at Mount Pleasant Baptist Church in Colonial Heights, Virginia in October 2015, coming here from Midway Baptist in Phenix, VA where I served for 18 years. In addition to my years of preaching, I have served as a Trustee for the North American Mission Board, SBC, from 2008-2012 and 2012-2016.  While serving with the Trustees, I have been on the Chaplains Commission; there I have been elected Vice-Chairman and Chairman.  Presently, I am also serving as the Ambassador to the Pastors of Virginia for the North American Mission Board.

I have been happily married to Angela Massie Anthony (since 1988) and have four children and one grandson, and two granddaughters!
