Pastor Anthony as he is known by his members, founded Called To Conquer Ministries at the age of 17 as a High school youth ministry. At the age of 23 Pastor Anthony along with his wife Lady Tiffany turned the ministry into a church.
In 2011 after 7 years in ministry God called Pastor Anthony to launch a new ministry in Cleveland, Ohio.
Bishop Joey’s presence in my life has made a decisive difference in my marriage, my ministry, and in the mastery of my emotional consciousness.
You will often hear me say, “Don’t tell me who you’re over until you tell me who you’re under.” There are few principles that I believe in more than surrendering to the spiritual authority of one who you feel called to.
It was his advice during that difficult time that ultimately led me to start The Word Church.
I am convinced that part of the reason God divinely orchestrated Bishop Joey’s intervention and allowed me to have that experience was to show me the importance of both covering and submission.
