Anthony was born and raised in Central California about ten minutes from the beach. He came to Oklahoma on a baseball scholarship to Oklahoma Baptist University in 2008 and graduated in 2010 with a B.S in Sports and Recreation Management. Before attending OBU, Anthony has no relationship with Jesus and hardly ever stepped into a church. His first encounter with anything related to the Bible happened his first semester during Old Testament. OBU requires the students to attend so many chapel services, so during one of those services Anthony asked for special prayer not really knowing exactly what to expect. A few weeks after that service around the first of November in 2008 he met Amanda. Amanda invited him to Sallateeska and they eventually started dating. In April of 2009 they attended a revival at Hazel Dell Baptist Church and that night Anthony gave his life to Jesus. Upon graduating in 2010, Anthony moved back to California and started a life without Amanda. During the next two years, he drifted away from Christ, but knew he was missing something. In April 2012, Amanda reached out to him and they began talking to one another again. Amanda invited him to her graduation in May so he flew back to Oklahoma to celebrate with her and her family. At her reception, Anthony told her family that he wanted to marry Amanda and the wedding would be in August. Anthony began actively serving at Sallateeska in October of 2012.
