Tom is the founder and lead communicator of Restoration Generation. He is driven by a passion to reach people with the life-saving message of Jesus Christ and help them restore the broken relationships in their lives.
Growing up in a broken home and dealing with issues of anger, acceptance and un-forgiveness, Tom knows the struggles students and young adults face as they work through any number of their own issues as a result of the broken relationships in their personal lives. Through humor, scripture and the power of the Holy Spirit, Tom delivers messages that create understanding and restoration with our Creator that can then help people be delivered from the bondage of unforgiveness in their own lives.
Tom, a member of Luis Palau’s Next Generation Alliance of Evangelists and a 17-year youth ministry veteran, speaks at music festivals, schools, camps, retreats, conferences and other outreach events throughout the country. He has also served as a tour speaker and road pastor for bands like Sanctus Real, Building 429, Day of Fire, John Reuben and Stellar Kart.
Tom has been married to Laura for over 16 years, and has 2 boys, Isaiah and Chase – both of whom he coaches in baseball and various lawn games like bocce ball and bean bags. When not on the road, He volunteers in the youth ministry of his local church, Central Baptist, in Sioux Falls.
