Anthony Duane Perkins (born July 22, 1960) has been a general authority of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) since 2006.

Perkins was born in Cortez, Colorado. As a young man, Perkins served as an LDS Church missionary in Taiwan and was a companion to future Utah Governor Jon Huntsman, Jr. He received a bachelor's degree in finance from Brigham Young University and later received concurrent master's degree from the University of Pennsylvania, an MA in International Studies with an emphasis on East Asia from the Lauder Institute and an MBA from The Wharton School.

After his graduate studies, Perkins joined management consulting firm McKinsey & Company, and later helped to open an office in China. As a result, he and his family lived in Beijing for eight years where he served as president of the Beijing Branch, China International District. In 2003, he was called as president of the Taiwan Taipei Mission of the LDS Church, where he was serving at the time of his call as a general authority. Since his call to the First Quorum of the Seventy in 2006, he served first as a counselor and later as president of the church's Asia Area.

On November 21, 1981, he married Christine D. Abbott and they are the parents of six children.
