About Rev. Dr. Tony Weedor

Tony Weedor's unique ministry crossed many borders. A native African and former Muslim, he brought a learned and insightful perspective to those struggling with questions about cultural conflict. As a young man, Tony was in training to become an imam when he felt the call of God to follow Jesus. His Muslim parents disowned him as a result, and while he managed to finish college, he barely escaped a horrific civil war with his wife and their fourteen-month-old daughter. After three years in a refugee camp, they were rescued and brought to America where Tony graduated from Denver Seminary (USA). Tony taught Islamic history at both Denver Seminary in Colorado and at Evangelical Theological College in Ethiopia. He lectured about Islam following the 9/11 terrorist attacks and spoke before Congress in his native Liberia. For years, Tony’s Bible radio commentaries were also heard throughout a large portion of West Africa. After years as Regional Director for Africa for the humanitarian organization Advancing Native Missions, Tony became Missions Associate for Muslim Outreach at Southeast Christian Church, in Louisville, KY. In partnership with his wife,

Elizabeth Fahn-Weedor, he also founded Centerpoint International Foundation, providing support to Liberia through desperately needed relief supplies and the building and operation of schools.

Tony's powerful testimony, teaching, and consistent witness for Jesus impacted thousands around the globe. His legacy will not soon be forgotten.

About The Reason For Tears

by Tony Weedor


Though she’d loved, taught, and protected him when he was

younger, Weedor’s Muslim mother Manifah disowned him after he abandoned his imam training to follow Jesus. Tony finished college and went to work for a

missionary agency in his home country of Liberia. After barely escaping the Liberian Civil War, he spent three years in a refugee camp with his wife and daughter before being brought from West Africa to America, where he graduated from seminary and began a career in international ministry. Now, after an absence of thirteen years, Pastor Tony Weedor returns in the wake of 9/11 to a Liberia devastated by war hoping to reconcile with the woman he still calls “Mama.”

In The Press

"Tony Weedor's...story is gripping and challenging - I couldn't put it down. He is honest and vulnerable but his intellect is keen...His Christian faith has been tested in ways I can only shudder to think about. He has much to teach us about being an intelligent, faithful believer in Christ."
