Tony Alonso

Founding Pastor and Teaching Elder Tony Alonso is the father of 8 kids and raises them along side his wife, Coty. Together they started Confessors of Christ Church back in 2018 with a conviction of bringing forth a Christ-centered and Gospel-focused church to the Champions Gate, Disney, and Four Corners area. 

Tony comes from the most unlikely of backgrounds when it comes to pastoring a reformed congregation with a focus on expository preaching. But, God tends to make the most radical transformations among the most unexpected of people. A life long entertainer, Tony made his living through DJ’ing the major central Florida theme parks and private events. Performing for tens of thousands of guests at the Magic Kingdom New Year’s Eve Celebration at Cinderella’s Castle for 8 years straight, Fairytale Weddings as seen on TV, and many celebrities. A background like this would usually lead to the motivational speaker circuit or man-centered, me-focused, preaching. Yet, it was God’s rescue of Tony’s heart and mind that helped him see that it wasn’t about his background, his abilities, or his resume, but all about God. Instead of making much of himself, Tony’s preaching is focused around making much of Jesus by walking through the Bible verse by verse. 

Tony’s journey into eldership began with a multi-year discipleship program through a mentor and bible college which continued through a church residency affiliated with Acts29. It is through the church residency that the calling to church plant was affirmed through their elders and sent forth to plant Confessors of Christ Church.

Tony’s hobbies include astrophotography, taking his kids to the theme parks, and listening to old albums on vinyl.
