Tony Sanelli

Tony Sanelli is the founding pastor-teacher of Grace Bible Church. Born in Central America, he arrived at the United States at an early age and came to know the saving grace of Jesus Christ in 1979. He first sensed the call to preach and teach when leading the Bible study of a San Francisco Bay Area musical group. This desire soon led to an internship and church planting. Since his ordination to the ministry in 1990, Tony has served as a youth pastor, worship leader and now preaching-pastor. His ministry is driven by the desire to preach and exposit the Scriptures with Biblical accuracy, a Christ-centered focus and pastoral concern.

Tony is a graduate of The Master’s Seminary in Southern California. In conjunction with his ministry at Grace Bible Church, he also teaches theology at the Cornerstone Bible College and Seminary, serves on the board, and speaks at various nearby and international conferences and camps. He and his wife Sheri live and minister in our community with their three children and seven grandchildren.
