My friend, Tony Rhone, began his first pastorate this past Easter Sunday at the Galilee Baptist Church in Shawnee, Oklahoma. Prior to agreeing to serve the Galilee Church, Tony served as the assistant to the pastor at the Fairview Baptist Church in Oklahoma City, where John A. Reed, Jr. is the pastor. Tony is also Reed’s son-in-law, who has been married to his oldest daughter for over 20 years. Tony is a good friend, a godly brother, a servant leader, and a faithful preacher. Please pray for him, his family, and the Galilee Church. And check out Tony’s new blog, in which he chronicles the opening days and weeks of his new pastoral assignment.
