Anthony Knight was born and raised in Nashville, TN where he found his love for sports. Football and fitting in with the athletic crowd were what he found his identity in. This led to a few years of walking in darkness before he was grabbed by the Lord at age 19 in his second year of college. As he played football for a small university in Lebanon TN, his passions for football began to dwindle as he became familiar with God’s Word. The more he read about God, the more he wanted to share what he learned. This passion continued to increase as he began being mentored by Pastor Erik Reed, a local pastor within walking distance from the University.
Throughout the months of being mentored, he was offered an internship position at The Journey Church, which opened his eyes to teaching and preaching. After serving on staff for four and a half years Anthony accepted the call to move to Georgia to serve as the Next Gen Pastor at First Baptist Church Woodstock. He also has the privilege to preach at Discipleship Nows and Student Conferences/Camps, studying for his Masters of Divinity at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, and being a husband and father to his two beautiful sons and wife Nicole.
