Tom is a Texas guy with a Texas wife (Nona) and Texas twins (Marc & Melinda). Then there are the 5 Texan grandkids. He loves to tell you about them! Growing up in Ft. Worth, then the Abilene years (Hardin-Simmons University), back to Ft. Worth (Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary) he has served Green Acres Baptist Church/Tyler, FBC/Abilene, Westbury Baptist Church/Houston, Tallowood Baptist/Houston FBC/Houston as Music Worship Pastor. He was founding pastor of The Church at Hilton Head, SC and has served as Campus Pastor/Director of Leadership Development at Howard Payne University. Tom serves on the Board of Passion Conferences and was on the Passion Staff in Alpharetta, Georgia.
Outside of his family, his greatest joy is encouraging, shepherding, mentoring, equipping university students to be full-on for the name and fame of Jesus. Tom loves the church. God has used Tom's years of serving the local church to instill the priority of worship as a way of life. He is committed to leading others to that end.
