Meet our Leaders

Pastor Tony Lomenzo

Tony grew up locally in Fort Ann, NY. He didn’t grow up in church but thankfully was introduced to Jesus Christ when he was twenty one years old. Although he grew up fearing God, his relationship was not right with Him. Fortunately, God brought a young lady, named April Rathbun, into his life who shared the Good News about Jesus with him; she later became his wife! One evening in February of 1994, after spending several weeks reading his Bible and listening to April share, he prayed and asked Jesus to come into his heart and forgive him of his sins. From that point forward his life was changed forever!

Tony and April met while serving together on the Fort Ann Rescue Squad. They have two children. Tony spent 14 years working as a Correction Officer before being called into pastoral ministry. Tony and his family enjoy spending time together, hiking, hunting, and riding snowmobiles.
