Tony Anobile serves as the Vice President for Multilingual Ministries of the North American Division. Prior to that, he was the Vice President of the Pacific Union Conference, and, prior to that, the President of the Arizona Conference. As a Conference Youth and Young Adult Director it was his passion to bring every young person into a saving relationship with Jesus Christ. As a church pastor, it was his desire to have every member involved in active ministry, and as an administrator it has been his mission to have every entity of the Division/Union/Conference/local church involved in three specific areas: bring people in through evangelism, keep people in through Christian nurture, and keep people healthy and active through involvement in church and school.
Fully bilingual, Tony graduated from Montemorelos University in Mexico with a B.A. in theology and completed an M.A. in religion from Loma Linda University, La Sierra Campus. He also believes passionately in evangelism, having conducted series in many countries, as well as at home in North America.
He is married to Lisa (Bramlett) Anobile, a principal/teacher with an M.A. in special education, and they have three children. Tony Jr. is a pastor in the Texas Conference. Their daughter Aurianna is a speech pathologist, and Andrew is a pastor in the Georgia-Cumberland Conference.
