Pastors & Staff

Tony McAfee

lead Pastor

Pastor Tony and his wife Cyndi came to pastor Covenant Life in April of 1992. At that time the church was located in Rocky Top. It was a small, old building with about 20 members. They began canvassing and evangelizing the area and have been true to the call for the last 30+ years. If you speak with Pastor Tony for any length of time, you know he has one goal...to reach the lost! Everything that is done at Covenant Life is to facilitate that goal of winning the lost for Christ.
