Tony Stith grew up in the Pacific Northwestern United States. He has been a member of the churches of God all of his life, attending the Boise, Idaho, Lewiston, Idaho and Spokane, Washington churches of God. After graduating college in Pasadena, CA in 1990, he and his wife Elizabeth moved to the small suburb of Zimmerman, MN about one hour northwest of Minneapolis. They and their two children Jordan and Courtney, now young adults, attend the Twin Cities United Church of God congregation.
Tony has worked as a corporate trainer and instructional designer in the corporate learning and development field for 19 years. He is now employed as a manager within the corporate education division of Life Time – The Healthy Way of Life Company based in Chanhassen, MN. He has also been a motivational speaker on the topic of Coping with Organizational Change.
In his spare time he enjoys writing, speaking, cycling, kayaking, photography and listening to jazz and the blues. He also loves spending time with his wife, kids and larger church family. The scripture he strives to let guide how he approaches his day to day life is “ I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ lives in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.” – Galatians 2:20
