MEET TONY

Ministry Leaders reach out to Tony to help them reach others. People are suffering from the attacks of a thief [satan] who is stealing, killing, and destroying. Yet, the sweeping epic story of God reveals that Jesus defeated the works of darkness and can heal the deepest wound of humanities’ soul. That’s nonfiction! Tony’s supporting role is to share the Gospel, so hurting people can be set free and experience abundant life through Jesus Christ!  Nolan is no flash in the pan. He’s been serving since October 1991 and has become a sought after, seasoned minister. God has scripted some amazing supporting role moments for Tony to minister across America. 

A few of them include:

• Band Pastor and Gospel Communicator for an 87 city national tour with Casting Crowns

• 8 year tour speaker/pastor  for WINTER JAM, the largest Christian concert tour on the planet

• 4 year Main Stage Keynote Speaker, CreationFest, America’s largest Christian festival

• 3 year featured preacher for Christian Family Day, Busch Stadium, St. Louis Cardinals

• For 26 years ministry leaders have trusted Tony to come minster at their  churches, events and conferences. 

Tony’s teaching has been featured on some award winning, Kingdom minded projects, such as:

• “Life Lift” message on Casting Crowns LifeSong Live DVD

• “The Gospel” in the This is Winter Jam Movie, shown in theaters Nationwide

• Testimony on Sidewalk Prophets “Loved Me Anyway” music video

• “Call to Response” featured on Preaching Rocket for Catalyst Leaders   

• “The Word” featured in the middle of Casting Crowns song “The Word is Alive”

• “The Sweet Will of God” contributing author in the book, “Inspired by Tozer”

Tony’s supporting role has also involved being an influencer to influencers. For over a decade, he has poured into the hearts, minds, and spirits of celebrities, who use their gifts to advance the Kingdom of God. The short list reads like a who’s who and includes: Albert Pujols (World Series MVP Champ), Sadie Robertson (Duck Dynasty/Dancing with Stars/ Live Original Tour), Casting Crowns, Steven Curtis Chapman, Toby Mac, For King and Country, Colton Dixon, Francesca Battistelli, NewSong, Lauren Daigle, David Crowder, John Cooper (Skillet), Matthew West, Jeremy Camp, Tenth Ave North, Britt Nicole, Kari Jobe, Tripp Lee, Hill Song, and KB.

Tony’s biological mother was a homeless, medically diagnosed paranoid schizophrenic, “woman of the night”. He only met her once, shortly before she died. At a boarding home for the mentally disturbed, Tony sat down with her and told her he was a preacher. She smiled in approval and muttered about the doctors telling her not to have him. She kept staring into space and muttering over and over, “They told me not to have you”. Then, she stopped, looked at Tony in the eyes, smiled, and said, “Well, it looks like God knew what he was doing!”. God certainly does! If God’s story was on DVD, we could go to any scene selection, and there he’d be, in complete control, using ordinary people to accomplish extraordinary things for his Kingdom purposes. Christ stands center stage! We tell his story through our supporting roles! 

Perhaps he has something extraordinary for you and Tony to do together? Pastors, imagine having a Sunday morning evangelistic service, where you see scores of people responding to the Gospel! Event Leaders, envision thousands coming to Christ, like Tony saw at Busch Stadium, when he preached for Albert Pujols. Perhaps your staff could use some inspiration? Picture them leaving on fire, ready to reach your ministry goals, after gathering around God’s Word with Tony, where he taught team principles that he’s shared with celebrities he has influenced. If your organization is involved with orphans or protecting the lives of the unborn, imagine surpassing last year’s fundraising goals, like Tony has seen happen many times when he’s shared his story at banquets and dinners for orphanages and pregnancy crisis centers across America.

Q&A With Tony

Q.   What's one thing about you that people may not know?
I am a “goofy footed” surfer and I’ve ridden big waves in Maui.
Q.   Where did you go for your undergraduate work?
I earned my BA Degree in Biblical Studies from The Criswell Center for Biblical Studies in Dallas,TX.
Q.   What’s been one of the biggest surprises in your life?
I married WAY out of my league!  (For real! Have you seen her? And she’s godly too? WOW!)
Q.   When you're not out speaking or surfing in Maui, where are you?
I serve as co-teaching pastor and do life with the beautiful people of North Florida at The Journey Church. We share the irresistible love of Jesus with everybody! By being disciples and making disciples we’re transforming our city and world for the glory of God!
Q.   After years of ministry you sensed you still needed to grow. What did you do?
I earned a MA in Ministry and Spiritual Formation from Richmont Graduate University in Atlanta, GA.
Q.   You’re in a lot of airports. Got any good airport stories?
Yeah, the lead singer of Rascal Flatts came up and shook my hand in the airport thinking I was someone else. When I said hello, his eyes widen (realized I wasn’t who he taught I was) and walked away. True Story! I ended up chasing him down and got a picture!
Q.   What is one of the biggest “GOD MOMENTS” you've experienced?
There’s been too many. I feel I’m living in one everyday. However, something does stand out. I preached at an outside event in Pennsylvania, and we saw thousands respond to the Gospel. As they all moved toward the prayer tent, I got on my knees to thank God, and he  whispered in my spirit, “I am answering the prayers of William Penn.” What an inspiration to later learn about Penn’s long prayer rides on his horse, where he would beg God to bless his “Great Experiment”. That inspires me to ask, “What are we praying for that God will answer in our lifetime and long after we are gone?” Let’s ask big and go big for God!
“BeCAUSE EVERYBODY WILL SPEND ETERNITY SOMEWHERE, LET’S WORK TOGETHER AND HELP  THEM SPEND It In HEAVEN”
- Tony Nolan
