Tony McCleave

Pastor Tony, by his own admission, is about as unorthodox a preacher as you can find. Not by his own ambition, but by God’s design. One minister, while explaining to a church why the Holy Spirit manifests himself in Pastor Tony the way He, does declared prophetically “peculiar but sound”.

Having been delivered out of a lifestyle of drugs and everything that goes along with that, Pastor Tony understands completely that our victory is in Christ. Outside of Christ there is no victory for us, but the same old bondages we left behind.

In pursuit of staying in Christ, God miraculously filled Tony with the Holy Spirit evidenced by tongues in his living room, alone, after being saved for about 8 months. It was a feeling of empowerment that drugs was no match for.

“Be ye not drunk with wine where there is excess, but be ye filled with the spirit to excess (constantly being filled)”. This scripture has been a motivation for Pastor Tony for years as well as “Seek the Lord and Live”. In this pursuit of seeking and being filled, this hunger for the things of God has driven Tony to travel to revival hotspots throughout the world to give and receive more of the Lord.

Tony is a speaker that many say has a “breaker” anointing, able to impart a fresh anointing into any atmosphere. In 2006, God called him to bring this anointing to the east side of Wilmington, DE. There, in an inner city atmosphere full of “the least of these,”

The Blessing Place was born.
