Tony has been involved in ministry for 15 years now (an ordained pastor in the PCA for six years). For 12 years he ministered at a largely Pan-Asian church. Tony and Marilyn also specifically led a South Asian ministry and saw fruits of salvation, maturity, and equipping. Tony also had the joy of pastoring international and ethnic ministries: Korean, Filipino, Taiwanese, Japanese, Indonesian, Latino, Vietnamese, and Black & African.


Living in Atlanta now for three years, the Lord has been preparing this work through the support of Perimeter Church, through Tony giving leadership to a city-wide South Asian prayer movement, and their family developing diverse relationships inside and outside the church.

We are trusting the Lord to provide through the generosity of family, friends, and organizations until as a church we can become internally self-sufficient. Our estimate is that it will take us six years to reach that point. 

Would you consider how the Lord might be leading you towards giving to this kingdom work? 




Thanks for submitting!

We'd love to keep you updated and send prayer requests as we get closer to our launch date.
