Reverend Toney was born to Elijah and Mary Toney in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He was raised in a devout Christian home, accepted Christ at an early age and was actively engaged in church ministries throughout his childhood and young adulthood.

The Milwaukee Public Schools provided his formal education through eleventh grade. After moving to Arkansas, he completed high school and went on to attend East Arkansas Community College. Reverend Toney attended Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary where he received a certificate in Biblical Studies.

Reverend Terry D. Toney always knew that God had a special calling upon his life, but like Jonah, when directed by God to preach the Gospel (Jonah 1), he took an opposing direction for many years from the ministerial work God had for him. In 2010, Reverend Toney preached his first sermon.

Reverend Toney’s ministerial work includes serving as Pastor of the Senior Ministry, Pastor of the Worship Ministries and provides outreach ministry to the men in care at the Milwaukee Rescue Mission. He was also the coordinator for The Zeidler Center Police and Resident Listening Circles for the Sherman Park Community, as Chaplain of the Prison Aftercare Ministry with Nehemiah, Inc.

He is the proud father of six wonderful children: three boys and three girls. He is also delighted to be the grandfather of eight children and two great grands.

Reverend Toney continually seeks growth in his relationship and understanding of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The scripture that governs his life is Romans 5:8 (NIV): “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” and Isiah 40:8, (KJV) “The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand forever.”
