Tony “Mac” McMullen grew up as an average teenage boy in Oklahoma. He was married at age 17 and fathered two children by age 20. Tony’s life quickly changed when he began using drugs and alcohol. The lifestyle of searching for a new high, transformed him into a violent drug dealer with few feelings for those around him. Eventually, this spelled the end to the things that had meant the most to Tony, including the life of a friend.
Mistaking his friend for another drug dealer, Tony shot and killed him. This act earned him 30 years in prison. He was known in prison for his bad disposition and many feared him.
Through several miraculous events in prison, Tony finally found the answer he had been looking for all along. He found the saving grace of Jesus Christ and the freedom He brings. The joy was immediate and Tony began to share the Good News with those around him. A ministry was formed and many lives were changed.
Tony was released from prison in January, 2001, but the ministry he created still continues behind prison walls and in the outside community.
