Tony loves stories. He would say that’s because he tries to live his life imitating Jesus – the greatest storyteller of all. Tony is known for sharing inspiring and captivating stories as he preaches the Good News. God has used Tony’s stories to touch the lives of millions of people.

In February 2021 we launched the series called Let Me Tell You a Story in honor of Tony and his 86th birthday and in homage to his beloved craft. It features personal testimonies from friends and supporters who’ve been impacted by Tony. These folks want to honor Tony and, at the same time, support the vision and mission of the Campolo Center as it prepares young church leaders. We long to hear the stories this rising generation of pastors will tell in the years to come!

In the most recent edition of our Let Me Tell You a Story series, Daryl Drummond shares the impact Tony had on him years ago and why he is supporting Tony and the Campolo Scholars program today. Daryl and his family will match every gift given for Campolo Scholars up to $20,000.
