Tom and Nancy were married during college, and that was also when they started a family, eventually having four daughters. Tom pursued an education in Business and Human Resources and later received a Master's Degree in Business. After serving in various leadership positions in the State Health Department, Tom accepted a leadership position for Ohio's Prepaid College Program. During that time, while on a short-term missions trip, Tom and Nancy began to sense God's call to missions.
While Tom pursued theological education at Liberty University, they joined ABWE International, and God led their family to a church planting ministry in South Africa, where they served until 2019. During their years of planting churches, God added the responsibility of regionally leading various teams in southern Africa.
Then, while preaching at a CFC's Reaching the Unreached Missions Conference, God was also planting in their hearts "not a new call, but a new direction," specifically to reach the unreached. A few months later, ABWE asked Tom to be the Regional Director for the western part of South Asia and part of the Middle East.
Tom and Nancy have completed CFC's Biblical Counseling Training, and they both enjoy serving as counselors and training others in their region to do the same. Nancy enjoys serving alongside Tom in their Regional Director role by mentoring and caring for women, developing ministry materials, leading Bibles studies, and directing the mobilizing new laborers to the field.
