Tom is a mission staff member of Cornerstone Cru at UIC, a student congregation on campus at the University of Illinois-Chicago. His job is literally to be on campus every day for the purpose of making friends, telling those friends about Jesus, leading bible studies, and introducing students to Jesus’ church. It’s the coolest job in the world. Tom was called into ministry while in school at Wheaton College, where he was transformed by Christian community with classmates and at Church of the Resurrection. He now longs to provide that same sort of loving Christian community to the men of UIC. Tom is very proud of his beard and less proud of his height.
