Anthony Carnell Capehart was born July 26, 1979 in Dade City, Florida to Joe L Capehart and Gloria Harris Capehart. Anthony graduated Pasco High School in 1998 and worked for the school board during high school years. He worked at Saddlebrook Golf and Country Club Resort for a short period after high school until he found his passion in customer service. Anthony began his journey at Accent Marketing LLC in Zephyrhills, Florida and ended at Verizon in Tampa, Florida. Anthony's identity and greatest call was ministering for the Lord. He accepted the Lord at the tender age of 14. Anthony united with New Life Ministry under the leadership of Bishop Jesse McClendon and First Lady Terry McClendon, where he served faithfully as youth minister. He later united with Christian Fellowship Church under the leadership of Pastors Timothy and Laura Ratterree whom became more than just pastors, they were his spiritual parents indeed. At Christian Fellowship, he served as youth pastor; and he loved and enjoyed every youth that he served. He later was elevated as the assistant pastor under Pastor Jason and Tonia Roberts. Some time after, Anthony was elevated to Senior Pastor where he served faithfully until he resigned in 2014. Anthony met the love of his life in 1998. They united in Holy matrimony on March 15, 2000. To this union, were 3 great sons, a daughter in love, and others that he regarded as children as well. He and his wife parted ways in 2019 but still shared great love until the day he passed. God in His awesome wisdom called Anthony home on Sunday, October 10, 2021. Anthony's health began to fail in January of 2021, yet God by His power raised him up to be a sign, a wonder, and a miracle after experiencing four brain surgeries. His strongest ministry has been in his last months of open confession and repentance as he was pleading with others to give their lives to the Lord and partake in God's grace, mercy, and love with him. Those left to cherish his memory and legacy: his sons, Andrew, Aaron, and Asaiah Capehart all of Dade City, FL along with their mother.
