He has served as pastor of churches in Georgia and Pennsylvania and planted churches in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and Boca Raton, Florida. Tommy has more than five years’ experience of training, resourcing and coaching church leaders as vice-president of training for Church Leader Insights Nelson Searcy. Alongside Searcy, Tommy co-taught the Launch Conference to more than 500 church planters. Since 2014, Tommy has trained more than 150 men in coaching networks across Alabama. He and his wife, Amber, live in Savannah, Georgia. They have two children.
