On New Year’s Eve 2006, he married his high school sweetheart, Lauren, and they now have 5 children—Abram, Ephraim, Adelaide, Chaim, and Eliza. Tony grew up attending a variety of churches and denominations, but it wasn’t until he was a teenager that he began to understand partly the beauty of the Gospel and would take several more years for him to truly embrace the glorious Gospel and repent of his sins. God worked within him a love for His Word and a desire to teach and preach it to others. He has served as a youth minister in 2 local churches before joining here at FBC Thibodaux where he now serves as our Sunday School leader. His desire is to help equip our teachers to be able to study and teach in a way that will bring glory to God. He also desires to see those who attend Sunday School learn how to study God’s Word through the faithful exposition of it in Sunday School. As a result, his hope is that lives will be changed as boys and girls and men and women are exposed to the beauty of Scripture and its relevance in their lives.

Men’s D-Group

“Teaching Men to be Satisfied in Christ”

Purpose: At FBC Thibodaux, our men’s discipleship ministry exists to follow Jesus’ command in Matthew 28:18-20 to “make disciples” that was faithfully carried out by Paul in 2 Timothy 2:2 by charging Timothy in the way of discipleship. Discipleship has been a way of life for God’s people from the beginning and will continue with us and others until Jesus returns.
FBC Thibodaux has a “Discipleship Pathway” beginning with the expository preaching of God’s word in the pulpit during corporate worship, to more intimate inductive study and discussion led by our gifted teachers in small groups such as Sunday School, to our most intimate form of discipleship that we call D-groups (discipleship groups).
In men’s D-groups, trained men meet with 1-4 other men roughly every other week for 12-18 months to thoroughly study the gospel, walk through key foundational doctrines, and impart biblical study methods of interpretation so that men may be able to fully nourish on God’s word, effectively lead their families, plug into the local church where they are gifted and called, and be able to replicate the process with other faithful men. We build intimate relationships and accountability with each other inside and outside of group meetings by living life together. This intimate form of discipleship, as seen with Jesus, Peter, James and John, has accelerated the spiritual growth and service of our group leaders, and we desire the same for all other men in our fellowship.
Jerry Rivet

It has given Jerry a great passion for discipleship and building spiritual relationships that will last for eternity. He believes the more we encourage and aid each other to love and serve Christ and His church the more He receives the glory, honor and praise that He so greatly deserves because “God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him!” (Piper)
