Thomas oversees and cares for the students and leaders of Axis Student Ministries at our Oviedo site. He previously served in an associate pastor role at LifePointe Church and has been serving in family ministry since 2004 with the same approach, “Lives are changed through relationships. Unless we pour into the lives of families today, they leave the church tomorrow.”
With a deep passion to equip, encourage and express the love of Jesus Christ, Thomas believes that students are the influencers in our culture and, by just being with them, we have the privilege of investing in the most pursued demographic of people in the world. He has a heart to create a culture that is both incarnational and intentional with the everyday lives of students. Some of the most significant life decisions are made within the years leading up to high school graduation. It is because of this Thomas believes we have the unique opportunity to wrap our arms around students, not to fix them; but to inspire them to live with one single passion: to attentively and passionately pursue God in every area of their life.
Thomas is originally from Kalamazoo, Michigan, and currently resides in the metropolis known as Oviedo, Florida. He and his beautiful wife, Tyler, are privileged to be deep in the parenthood trenches of craziness with their children: Dawson, Emma Grace, and Ella Jay.
