Tom came to trust in the sufficiency of Christ’s saving work alone and received eternal life by God’s grace in 1987. Soon afterwards he attended DBC where he began to grow spiritually and become equipped for ministry primarily through the faithful expository teaching of God’s Word and shepherding ministry of the church’s leadership. From 1999–2011 he served as the pastor-teacher at Word of Grace Bible Church in Milwaukee, WI. Tom is married to Debbie and has three children. He has degrees from Moody Bible Institute, Grace Institute of Biblical Studies, University of Minnesota Duluth, and Grace Biblical Seminary (Th.M., Th.D.).
