Tony has been the Youth Minister since the Fall of 2013. He and Dollucy were married in 1992 and enjoy serving as ministry partners. They have 4 children, Hannah, Tanner, Blake, and Cyrus. Tony began serving as the children's minister here at Sherwood in 2008 and was licensed to ministry that same year. In 2009, during a revival service at Sherwood, he realized he had never totally surrendered his life and heart to Christ and did so at that time. Tony continued serving as Children's Minister until the Fall of 2013 when he was asked to work with the youth/student ministry program. Tony and Dollucy have found their calling in this ministry and are passionate in living out the Great Commission in both the youth ministry and mission ministry of Sherwood. Their desire is to "live our lives to go, to teach, to preach, and make disciples ... until our last day on earth, or the Lord Jesus returns."
