I have been in ministry for 18 years serving outside several major metropolitan areas across North America (Tampa, Philadelphia,  Atlanta, and Sacramento). As an ordained pastor in the Evangelical Presbyterian Church I have lead worship regularly for congregations as large as 1,200 people. My areas of pastoral expertise include missions, spiritual formation, adult education, and emerging generations.

I am currently doing part-time pulpit supply for the Church of Scotland while completing a PhD at the University of Aberdeen under John Swinton in the area of Practical Theology. In addition to this degree I have completed a Doctor of Ministry from Western Theological Seminary in Holland, MI in the area of Spiritual Formation; a Masters of Divinity from Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia, PA; and a Bachelors in Pastoral Studies from Clearwater Christian College, FL. My areas of academic interest include practical theology, disability theology, Christian spirituality, missiology, the monastic tradition, and the early reformation period in its Late Medieval context.


Tony Stiff is a graduate of Westminster seminary, a friend, and a solid young thinker.

Many will cite Tony’s keen mind or winsome communication style as his greatest strengths, but I appreciate most his earnest desire to grow and mature through self-reflection, inviting feedback, and listening well.

Tony was one of my most creative and forward looking students...I expect him to excel in any future academic or ministry endeavors that lay ahead of him.

Tony possesses the unique ability to engender growth and development in those he manages. He does this primarily by conducting himself in a manner worthy of being emulated.

I believe Tony’s gentle nature coupled with his passionate love for the Kingdom of God are a great ministry combination. Anthony is passionate about faithfully understanding Scripture, passing that understanding on, and then seeing, by the power of the Holy Spirit, that understanding change and transform lives.
