Tom is a movement leader for Cornerstone Cru at UIC, a student congregation on campus at the University of Illinois-Chicago. His job is to lead an incredible team of missionaries and student leaders in loving the students of UIC and sharing the good news of Jesus with them through intentional community, missional small groups, and participation in Jesus’ church. It’s the coolest job in the world. Tom gave his life to Christ as a young boy, and discerned a call to ministry late in his college years after experiencing the transformative power of one-on-one discipleship in the context of the local church. Tom and Rebekah married in May 2020, and when Rebekah isn’t on campus at Midwestern University for Medical School, she joins forces with Tom in caring for students through radical love and hospitality. As if they weren’t cool enough already, Tom and Rebekah make a mean scone.
