Thom was born in Kinston, North Carolina and was raised in Baltimore County. He met Christ as a child under the pastoral tutelage of the late Reverened Norman L. Hamby.
He was called to the ministry as a teen and has served as Youth Pastor, Music MInister and Associate Pastor and Evangelist.
He has served on the National Music Committee, directed the General Assembly Band and he has been a guest clinician at numerous Music Conferences.
After dating for three and one-half years, on February 8th, 1986, Thom used his rhetorical skills to persuade Lisa to say, "I Do." After 8 years of sharing, travel and late nights, The Lord blessed them with Daniel.
Thom, Lisa and Daniel came to Chesapeake Christian Center in September of 2005 and continue to give their best to augment the Kingdom of God!
When not at the church, Pastor Thom enjoys racquetball each morning at 5:00 a.m., snowboarding and listening to Daniel "tickle the ivories" with the United States Naval Academy Jazz Band or singing with the USNA Glee Club.
Additionally, he loves long talks with Lisa about the Grand Tour and Tuesday night trips to The Big Apple.
