Tom grew up in a strong Christian family where both of his parents were actively involved in the church. In 1980 he graduated from Bryan College in Dayton, TN with a degree in Christian Education. In September of that same year he married his wife Carolyn in her hometown of Atlanta, GA. He then became the Youth Pastor at Inverness Presbyterian Church in Baltimore for two years before going to Seminary. 

In 1984 Tom received an MDiv from Reformed Theological Seminary in Jackson, MS. He and his family moved to Miami, Florida for five years where Tom served as an Assistant Pastor, Interim Pastor, and Church Planter. Tom then became the Senior Pastor at East Ridge Presbyterian Church in Chattanooga, TN for six years before he began his ministry at Covenant Life in Sarasota, FL. He was there for 17 years.  

Tom and Carolyn have three children; Christin and her husband, Chris, live in North Carolina with their two sons Liam and Drew, Jonathan and his wife Raquel are at Virginia Tech where Jonathan attends medical school, and Julie works in Miami. Tom’s vision for ministry is to train and equip adults and children to use their spiritual gifts to reach out to our community and for the building up of the Body of Christ.
