Elder Anthony Starks was appointed the celebrated Pastor of God's Holy Tabernacle Church of God In Christ in November 2002 by Bishop John H. Sheard.

2006 was a defining moment for Pastor Starks and the growing Congregation.  The Church experienced a major identity crisis.  Pastor Starks held on  his faith believing that God rewarded those that diligently sought him. Our Pastor fasted and prayed, always believing that God would get the glory for this story.  In January 2008 the Churches dilemmas were no more and God received all credit as our Pastor  prayed.  In October 2008, Pastor Starks traveled to Rwanda, Africa for mission ministry and during his travel he asked God for direction on the ministry assigned to him.  When Pastor Starks returned God had given him a new name and new direction for the Church.

Pastor explained it like this, "Whenever God does something significant in a place or in someone's life he changed their name."   While returning to the United States, God spoke to Pastor Starks and said, "My people are to  Live In Full Expentancy....and from there came LIFE Church.

Pastor Starks' academic and professional background includes 13 plus years in computer operations. He began his higher education at Grambling State University, Grambling, LA. He completed and received his Bachelors of Science Degree from Eastern Michigan University in April 1990. When Bro. Tony (as he was affectionately known) reached his destination of Grambling, LA. he found a place to call home.  There he met Supt. Thomas Kennedy, a man who would change his life forever.  Supt . Kennedy taught Bro. Tony how to live a holy and sanctified life.  Many others have invested time to instruct and mentor our Pastor, including, Dr. Jerry L. Maynard, Bishop Walter E. Bogan, Marvin L. Winans and his own father Supt. C. James Starks.

He is married to the lovely Susan J. Rimson- Starks who is a true worker in the ministry as well. Pastor and Lady Starks are proud parents of four beautiful children, Anthony II, Jonathan, Lenzi, and Rhiston. He is also currently employed with the Van Buren School District in Michigan.

Through the ministry of Pastor Starks, hundreds of souls have been saved, healed, delivered, & set free from the bondage of sin. Growth continues at Life Church, Church of God in Christ as our servant leader takes us through the 21st century.
