Meet the Staff
Tony Rose: First in Command
Tony is originally from Enola, Pennsylvania, and yes, if you spell Enola backwards, it spells A-L-O-N-E. But “alone” is not how Tony would describe himself. Married for over a quarter century and a father to four VERY different, VERY awesome kids, Tony rarely finds himself alone. A fifth grade teacher for fifteen years, Tony received his Master’s Degree in Education from East Stroudsburg University in 1998 and used it for over a decade until he decided to resign from teaching. He traded in his chalk for church in 2010 when he took the position of Lay Mobilizer (no, it’s not French for “mover and shaker”) and Community Outreach Coordinator at Gravel Hill UMC in Palmyra, PA, a position he continues to hold today.
Tony loves to write and is the proud owner of a self-published book entitled Doug McClowski & The Chinese Buffet: A Year of the Dragon Trilogy. In fact, he might be the ONLY owner of his book! Of course, four kids and a job change later, and now the President of UBA, Tony has yet to complete Books 2 and 3 of the Trilogy but promises someday to do so.
Tony is a history buff and is currently co-writing a historical fiction novel about the Lincoln Assassination entitled Gashes on the Face of Heaven. Tony also plays the drums for his church’s Praise Team and has finally given up the dream of replacing Tommy Lee as Motley Crue’s drummer.
