Tony grew up in a small town in Saskatchewan and became a member of the Church of God as a teenager as a result of listening to a radio program on CFQC Saskatoon starting in 1962. Today he and his wife, Linda, wear multiple hats in UCG including working at the UCG-Canada National Office, serving on the Canadian national board and pastoring several congregations. They have served in various pastorates in the United States and Canada for the past 41 years.
The Wasilkoffs have two grown children (Paul and Cheri), a daughter-in-law (Coreen), a son-in-law (Jared Williams), three grandsons (Logan, Anthony and Jayden) and a granddaughter (Calista). They enjoy staying in touch with their grandchildren as much as possible in person and failing that, via the remarkable features of Skype.
