It’s a privileged to have Pastor Tom help serve CCC’s global efforts in equipping, sending, encouraging, and supporting our cross cultural workers. God saved Tom in 1981, and his family began attending CCC in 1991. A Vietnam Army veteran, Tom was confronted with the issue of “access” and the need to take the gospel to all nations. He reasoned that the “uttermost ends of the earth” (Acts 1:8) included x-ray departments, where he has worked for three decades. He likes to read and is happy to drop quotes from Shakespeare, old films, rock and roll lyrics, and proverbs into any conversation. This year he took up CrossFit in hopes of staying strong and agile enough to visit some of our missionaries in the field over the next several years. Tom and his wife Jane have 6 children and 3 grandchildren.
