Anthony Rodriguez has served as Isight's lead pastor since Fall 2011. Anthony graduated from Montreat College and stayed in the area to continue serving Isight in its earliest stages, serving as a preacher and Vision Team member. He worked with teens in Asheville for two years before moving with his family to Cape Town, South Africa for a year. Upon returning from their year of missions abroad in 2009, Anthony resumed his seminary pursuits in earnest at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in Charlotte while serving as a preacher and college ministry intern at Isight. Anthony completed his MA in Christian Thought in May of 2012 while assuming the responsibilities of Isight's lead pastor. Anthony serves Isight as a preacher and by leading the elder team. Anthony, with the elders, are responsible for discerning and communicating Isight's vision while caring for and equipping the people for the work of the Gospel in whatever context God calls them to.
Anthony married his best friend, Erin, in 2006, following his graduation from Montreat. Together they have two beautiful daughters, Ryann and Alethia. Erin is a woman of strength and passionate prayer, caring for moms and young women even as she leads her own two young children.
The Rodriguez family loves Isight and is thrilled to be in Black Mountain, continuing to invest in the community that has given so much to them.
