Husband to a smart, sassy wife named Jess, and father to two little minions named Will & Luke, Tom is the Co-Senior pastor of Grace Family Church – a multi-campus church in Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa.
Tom holds a Bachelor of Science in Physiotherapy from the University of Cape Town, as well as a Master’s of Theology from Palmer Seminary. His blog (remember when blogs were a thing) was read internationally by thousands, has been translated into several languages, and printed in numerous magazines and publications. In addition to his regular preaching role at Grace, Tom also speaks widely to other churches, schools, and businesses.
Tom is also a successful Obstacle Course Racer, placing 2nd at the 2017 OCR World Championships in Canada, and more recently placing 2nd at the 2022 Altitude OCR World Championships at Mt Everest, Nepal (breaking a world record in the process!).To hear the full story of Everest, click here.
When he’s not leading the church or climbing mountains, you can find him drinking good coffee, or playing sports with his two boys, who are never naughty. Ever. 😉
He has been called many things – passionate, authentic, funny… short. Most of all he feels called by God to preach the Gospel and build the local church.
