Pastor Tom has been in pastoral ministry for nearly 30 years, and has been living here in the valley for almost 25 years. He has served as both staff pastor and lead pastor, including overseeing a house church for five years. He has also served as home -school instructor for elective courses through Arizona Families for Home School Education (AFHE) for two school years.
Pastor Tom co-founded a para -church organization originally based in northeastern New Jersey to work in tri-state area prisons and inner city populations. This ministry is now international and is overseen by a group of other leaders. Pastor Tom was privileged to be a part of a church ministry in New Jersey that, in the mid 1980s, birthed a messianic synagogue and he and his wife attended and assisted in that ministry for the first year and a half of its upstart. Pastor Tom is semi -retired, but you wouldn’t know it, because he presently oversees and leads several disciple -making communities of adults and young people who meet at local coffee shops or bookstore cafés to engage God’s word on a deeper level so as to transform the way we think and act. The program, A Word From the Word, is an outgrowth of nearly 30 years of personally engaging the Bible in preaching and teaching and sharing it in churches, seminars, small groups and even Christian concert settings.
