Pastor Tom grew up just five-miles from CUC. He graduated from Annville-Cleona High School, married his high-school sweetheart, and began raising a family. Twenty three years later he entered pastoral ministry, after a long struggle with God’s calling.
He earned his Master of Divinity degree from Evangelical Theological Seminary in 2009, graduating magna cum laude.
Tom is also a recipient of The J. C. Christman Practical Theology Award, established by the class of 1980, presented to the graduate who has demonstrated exemplary competence in practical theology courses.
