Minister

Pastor Tom Thomas

 

I  joined the FCCI staff  in 2017 with the intentions of becoming the lead Pastor. I have  enjoyed successful ministries in Missouri, Mississippi, Kentucky, Alabama, and Tennessee. I come from a family of preachers: My father and six uncles were ministers, several aunts were married to ministers, my brother and several cousins are ministers, and three are missionaries. I am  married to Lisa and we have three sons one of which is in the ministry.  We have four beautiful grandchildren.

I studied 2 years at Kentucky Christian University in Grayson Ky and 2 years at Mid-South Christian College in Memphis, Tn.

I enjoy being apart of this church family in Inverness and look forward to the Lord blessing the ministry of FCCI.  I invite you to come and worship with us and get to know this loving family of FCCI where you are sure to get a smile and a hug!  Together we lift up Christ so He can draw all men to Himself (John 12:32).  My aim in ministry here at FCCI comes from Colossians 2:2My goal is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ,..”
