Anthony "Tony" Rivisto serves as an Associate Pastor and Elder at Seattle Revival Center. Tony is a true Seattlite, born and raised. He accepted Christ at 12 years old, but it wasn't until later in his college years that he began to understand what God desires for us as His followers and the personal relationship He wants to have with us. Tony has expressed a lot of his walk through his spoken word pieces. Tony is a gifted spoken word artist and has impacted many people as he's shared the power of the Spirit through his pieces. Tony is known as a man that loves God deeply and serves Him with great conviction.
He and wife Rebekah have been married for 2.5 years and live with their daughter, Amariah, in SeaTac, WA. They enjoy pouring into other couples and individuals and empowering others to walk in their fullness and walk out their dreams. As a family they enjoy time with their community and family (locally and in Canada), playing games, traveling, visits to the beach and good food!
Don't let Tony's serious side fool you, he's a total jokester and loves to have a lot of fun!
