Minister and Elder Anthony Edison Kemp Sr. (Affectionately called Tony) was born March 30th, 1960, the second of four siblings to Reverend Hensel and Mother Eula (Bethel) Kemp in Nassau, N.P. Bahamas. “Tony” was born into a loving, Christian family. He was as our mother called him, a busy child, always getting into some laughable mischief. Very early on, it was evident that Tony was a gifted child. He mastered playing the piano. We learned to look up to Tony to repurpose loose parts to build things. He was the family trickster. Tricks that was always followed with laughter. People always said, Tony is the life of the party.

The Royal Bahamas Defense Force was Tony’s very first, serious job. Shortly after moving on from RBDF, Tony transitioned to America. Tony was skilled in many trades. Tony later became a Contractor and excelled at running a successful business in Carpentry and all building work.
Tony loved family. He celebrated the birth of his sons TJ and Tio, which brought great joy to his heart. Then in 2017, he finally married the Love of his life, Ms. Patrice Moncur. Oh, how he loved Patrice. He talked of her in every conversation. Patrice bought a balance to Tony’s life. Like our mom she was a prayer warrior. Her calm still voice, quieted his loud, rumbustious self, she could get Tony to do almost anything. She was a cook, an essential quality in Tony’s life, because he loved his Bahamian food. Tony was Patrice perfect gentleman and Patrice was Tony’s beautiful queen.
Tony became a part of several churches in America, where he served, as Deacon, Elder, Associate Pastor and Music Minister. His last church Global Kingdom Embassy with Pastor, Dr.
