Minister Anthony J. Perry
Minister Anthony J. Perry was saved and filled with the Holy Ghost in the fall of 2000 at Refreshing Springs Church of God and heard the voice of God calling him to ministry shortly thereafter. Much like the prophet Samuel Minister Perry began to study and work diligently for the Lord under the tutelage of Bishop Nathan Perry, I. Minister Perry has worked in a number of capacities at Refreshing Springs including praise team member, tenor section leader, Kingdom School teacher, mentor, and he was the first missionary of Refreshing Springs taking the gospel of Jesus Christ to the nations. Minister Perry has traveled multiple times to the small island country of Haiti and is seeking to evangelize in other parts of the world.
Minister Perry is a passionate young man who is serious about the Lord and the calling on his life. Serving and ministering to the world with an inspirational word or song are Minister Perry’s passion. In addition to his work at Refreshing Springs and on the mission field Minister Perry is currently an enrolled student at The Ohio State University where he continues to serve the Lord as director and chaplain for The African American Voices Gospel Choir where he gives spiritual guidance to his peers. When so many are turning away from sound doctrine Minister Perry, despite his age, is an example of all “believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, [and] in purity” (1 Timothy 4:12).
