Dr. Tony Higgins

Director, School of Christian Studies


Prior to entering vocational ministry, Tony maintained a successful career as a professional model, actor and radio personality. Since 1998, however, Tony has served in various contexts as senior pastor, associate pastor, church planting missionary and strategist, and as an adjunct faculty member of several Christian colleges and universities. Currently, Tony serves at OBU as the Director of the School of Christian Studies, and as an Assistant Professor of Christian Ministry.

Tony maintains an active research and writing agenda, has contributed to Christian Education Journal and The Journal of Family Ministry, and he is regularly involved teaching and ministering in various national and international cross-cultural settings. In all, while Tony describes himself as simply a “pastor, teacher, researcher and resourcer,” he considers his highest calling is to serve his wife and their two children as “husband” and “father,” all as a reflection of his passion to influence individuals, families, the church and culture, for the cause of Christ and the glory of God.
