They married in 1979 and are the parents of 3 adult children: Jenn (married to Chris), Marisa, and David.
Tom and Nancy have a passion to see the nations reached for Jesus, and for believers to walk in intimacy with the Father and release in their gifts and calling. They love to build the kingdom through encouraging godly marriages and families and seeing the next generation raised up. Tom meets weekly with local pastors who work together for transformation in the town of Elizabethtown. Nancy enjoys interaction with her community and sharing her passion for books while working part-time at the local library. They love filling their home with people, laughter, good food, strong coffee and meaningful conversation.
