Tony Yingst – Worship Pastor

Phone: 317-807-0222
Tony was born in central Indiana and spent most of his youth in Zionsville, IN. He began singing at age 6 and playing guitar at age 13. Music was a driving force in his life and played a pivotal role in his relationship with Jesus and his early pursuit of ministry. Ministries of leading worship and team development began early on in church planting contexts.

Serving in church plants also developed his hunger to preach and teach God’s Word. That hunger led him to Trinity Divinity School where he earned a Master of Divinity with an emphasis in church planting. After graduation, Tony served for ten years as the Pastor of
Worship Development for Family Bible Church in Portage, IN. After leaving Portage, Tony returned to Greenwood to plant Connection Church of Greenwood and serve in various other ministry roles.

Tony has been married to his bride Nancy since 1986. He has two daughters, Sarah and
Sydney, and recently became a grandpa for the first time. He enjoys working on his house, an old Toyota car, and collecting guitars and music equipment. He is also a Minnesota Vikings football fan.
