Facilitator of the group
Anthony Brinkley was born and raised in Tulsa, OK. An avid music lover and sports fan, Anthony was involved in martial arts, sports, and even the community choir, Teens Incorporated as a youth. Even with all that activity and involvement, young Anthony was proficient at finding trouble, particularly fighting. Thinking that a change of environment would be beneficial for young Anthony, the family relocated to Houston, TX. Anthony excelled academically in high school and was involved in NJROTC, History Fair, Black History Club Choir, and several other programs. After his dream of playing professional football was voided by a medical issue, Anthony enlisted in the United States Navy where he served honorably for 4 years. After the military, Anthony relocated to Washington, DC where his life was changed forever. Anthony gave his life to Christ in 2003 after being invited to church by friend and business partner, Fard Bell. Shortly after, Anthony began volunteering in the youth ministry at Zion Church. Anthony moved back to Houston in 2007 where he began service as a worship leader and as a member of the church’s leadership team. Over the last 12 years, Anthony has served in several capacities in the local church including worship leader, small group facilitator, curriculum instructor, speaker, and associate pastor. Anthony is a graduate of Rivers of Living Water and Ministers In Training under the instruction of Dr. Calvin Battle of Destiny Center in Tulsa, OK. Anthony is passionate about helping people discover their God-given purpose, building healthy relationships, and helping people heal from emotional hurt. Anthony currently resides in Houston, TX and is the father of two amazing children Kelly, and Anthony aka AJ.
