Anthony Q. Knotts
Anthony Q. Knotts is a native of Lexington, NC where his mother, Mary Montgomery was his first example of an entrepreneur. He shares his love of entrepreneurship with his entire family—wife Byrdzetta Knotts and three children—Teland, Jalen, and Destiny. He has promoted and worked as an entrepreneur for 17 years and has taught entrepreneurship on various levels from elementary to collegiate levels and beyond. He is also the founding and senior pastor of the Embassy Church International of Greensboro, NC and has been pastoring for twenty years. He is a strong advocate of marketplace ministry and economic gospel, which focuses on merging ministry and marketplace.
His passion for entrepreneurship lead him to create MORE Unlimited, Inc. based on the goal to Motivate Others to Reach Excellence through creating entrepreneurship opportunities and developing holistically—financially, mentally, and spiritually. This same passion is what lead him to author his debut book, You Can Be M.O.R.E, and his sophomore book, Liberating the Entrepreneur Within. He is currently working on his third book, Coming Clean: A Biblical Call to Repentance. He is the president of Manna Systems, LLC, a mobile marketing company, and is a certified iCAN coach for the International Coaching Achievers Network in partnership with Wayne Malcolm of London, England. Anthony Knotts is also the Director of Global Legacy Initiative with TraVerus Global, Inc., an initiative promoting empowerment through social entrepreneurship and providing training programs that translate to success in the marketplace.
Anthony Knotts considers himself an entrepreneur pastor, finding ways to merge his work as a pastor to his work as a businessman. As Bishop Wayne Malcolm states, “He recognizes that his business is ministry and his ministry is business.” As an entrepreneur pastor, Anthony Knotts has the privilege of preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ and an entrepreneurial message as a means to urge people to lift themselves up from spiritual and economic despair. He believes that the reciprocal relationship of ministry and marketplace is what leads to financial freedom. His life mission is to learn, to live, and to teach biblical and business principles to help others Be, Do, and Have more in life, in ministry, and in business.
