Tom grew up going to church. In High School he went from knowing about Jesus and believing in him, to falling deeply in love with him. His heart has been captured by the love that Jesus has for all people. Tom believes, “The more people get to know Jesus, the more they will love him!” He has a Bachelor of Science degree in Theology and Ministry from Boise Bible College and a Master of Arts in Global Leadership from Fuller Theological Seminary. He often says, he is far more interested in transformation that in acquiring information.
He met his wife Alana while they were both leading youth ministries for their churches in Southern California. Tom likes to say that Alana chased him, but everyone who knew them at the time says, “He was head over heels in love with Alana almost immediately!” When you meet Alana, it is easy to see why Tom fell for her so quickly! They have two adult children. Caleb, who works for Apple and lives in Mesa, Arizona. Stephen (and Kenzie) live in Fullerton, California where he works for Hope International University. Tom loves time with his family, vacations (especially if there is a beach or lake involved), reading, and playing games with friends.
