Thom began serving as the lead pastor at NACC in January 2015. He leads the staff and gives the vision for NACC. Over the last 30 years he has had the privilege to serve in pastoral ministry in one form or another. His passion is to serve a Gospel- centered church that is committed to Biblical preaching, God centered worship and life changing discipleship for the whole family.
He graduated from California Baptist University, Talbot Seminary and did some post graduate study at Bethel Seminary. He has worked at Christian camps all over the west coast, spoken at conferences around the country and taught at the seminary level as adjunct faculty.
When away from work Thom loves doing life with his wife of 27 years, Sue, a son Riley 22 and a daughter Emma 19. He is knowledgeable on all things pizza, enjoys golf, and is a diehard San Diego Chargers and Padres fan.
