Anthony and Barbara Manswell are global missionaries for the Church of the Nazarene assigned to Caribbean Nazarene College located in Trinidad, serving the English speaking Caribbean since January 2003.
Anthony graduated with a Bachelor of Theology from Canadian Nazarene College in 1990. He received a Master of Divinity from Nazarene Theological Seminary in 1994. While at NTS, he was in the Honors Program with a concentration in Doctrinal Theology. He graduated with his Doctorate in Education from Trevecca Nazarene University in 2008. Anthony’s call is to minister anywhere in the world where God opens the door and desires him to do ministry. This has always been his deep conviction since he fully committed his life to God. He has held several positions at CNC over the years, and is currently enjoying teaching full-time.
Barbara attended Canadian Nazarene College – University of Manitoba, and graduated in 1990 with a Bachelor of Education and a Bachelor of Music. She then attended Nazarene Theological Seminary and obtained an M.A. in Missiology in 1995. She participated in four Youth In Mission Projects and God touched her heart in a specific way. During college God placed a call on her heart for cross-cultural full-time ministry. She believes that God has worked in amazing ways over years to prepare them for this part of God’s adventure. As only God could have arranged, she is now the Music Program Director, teaching the core music courses and private music lessons at CNC for the Music Concentration/Bachelor of Arts program.
