Tom is a graduate of Wheaton College with a degree in economics, and is headed to Chicago to join the exciting work that God is doing on the campus of the University of Illinois-Chicago through Cornerstone UIC. Over his four years in college studying economics, Tom fell in love with the life of the church in a new way, which in turn brought him deeper into the love of Jesus. Through all of this, the call to full-time ministry became more and more clear. He can’t wait to mentor college men and introduce college students at UIC to the beauty of the gospel. Tom is very proud of his beard and less proud of his height.
