Tony Kriz

Tony “The Beat Poet” Kriz has served with a variety of international organizations, including Campus Crusade for Christ for twelve years. The majority of that time was spent in Eastern Europe, living with Muslims in Albania and serving the war-torn former Yugoslavia. He also was a chaplain for several years on the radically liberal campus of Reed College in Portland, some of the exploits of which are described in Donald Miller’s best selling book Blue Like Jazz. He is a frequent speaker at retreats, churches, and college campuses all over the country. Most recently Tony has been featured in the new film, Lord Save Us From Your Followers.

He lives with his wife Aimee and their three sons (Malachi, Hudson, and Tristan) in Portland, Oregon.
