Renard Anthony - Deacon


Ministry: Youth in Action

How were you introduced to the Church of Christ?

Growing up in a Baptist household in Detroit, Michigan, I consider myself a “late bloomer”.  I was introduced to the Church of Christ by my cousin at around 13 years old.  I considered the Church different and educational, but stayed true to my Baptist family tradition.  Fast forward 25 years; following a discussion with Orpheus, regarding baptism in the Church versus the Baptist religion, I obeyed the gospel and was baptized. 

My desire to serve God’s people and promote his plan continued to grow as my knowledge of his word grew, and I began to assist on multiple ministries and programs.  So when I was “tapped”, I felt honored to be considered to function in the capacity of deacon. 

My Favorite Scripture:

The scriptures which I lean on for comfort and a level of peace are Matthew 11:28-30 and James 1:12. The love of God resonates for me in these verses.

Renard worships with his wife Cheryl and they have two children.
