About Tony Clark
Tony Clark established Calvary Chapel Newport News in 1994, today, Calvary Chapel Newport News is a multi-cultural fellowship with members from over 30 countries represented. More than 2,000 people call Calvary Chapel Newport News home and are inspired by Tony’s simplistic, yet life-changing teaching style.
He has traveled throughout the United States and around the world to such places as Kenya, South Africa, Okinawa and Cuba to proclaim the goodness of God. His radio program, “The Word Made Plain,” is being heard by millions of people on the east and west coasts. Tony did not know it, but God’s hand was upon his life from the very beginning. For example, K-WAVE, the radio station that Tony listened to as a young marine during his drive to and from work, is now airing his messages.
The desire of Tony’s heart is to see the community of Newport News and the Hampton Roads area transformed by continuing to preach the Good News of Jesus Christ. Tony continues to heed the call by passionately studying God’s Word, prayerfully seeking the Lord’s direction for His church, and vigorously pouring love into the lives of the people God leads his way—persevering until He comes!
Many do not really understand what it means to be a follower of Jesus. When Jesus put His team together, they were quite ordinary, hopelessly human, and remarkably unremarkable. Simon and Andrew had been disciples of John the Baptist. James and John, the Sons of Thunder, were also called. Mark’s details indicate the testimony of an eyewitness, probably Peter. All of these men were doing something when Jesus called them. If you want to be used by God, get busy doing something for the Lord!
