Tom graduated from Judson College with a degree in Human Relations in 1976. He lettered in four sports (basketball, soccer, cross country, golf) and was named a four-time unanimous All-Conference basketball player. He was inducted into Judson College’s Hall of Fame in 2003. Coming to Christ in January 1976 his heart and life were changed permanently. Judson College named Tom Alumnus of the Year in 1981 and he was honored again in 1998 with an Honorary Doctorate Degree.
He now has 30+ years of missionary experience and with his wife, Karen, has seen coups, a revolution, lived through an earthquake, volcano eruptions, typhoons and floods, robberies, and ambushes while seeing the Lord work wondrously in each situation and circumstance.
1996-Present: Since June 1996 Tom and Karen have made their home in the USA. They now live in Stow, OH where Tom continues to lead the work of World Harvest Ministries. He makes trips to the Philippines to lead teams of work crews or sports teams in short-term ministry opportunities. He also directs the work at a special project, Sankey Samaritan Orphanage, home to 40 children in Lucena, Philippines. He also helps with the ministry at a camp in the southern Philippines, Mt. Moriah, where they serve children from the surrounding area through an AWANA program, host pastor’s conferences, and youth groups. He also travels within the USA speaking in public and Christian schools, colleges, community groups, churches and camps.
