About Pastor Tom
At the age of two, I was adopted along with my three siblings by a Christian single women, whom God had been ministering to at the young age of sixteen. That she was to adopt four children. The oldest two being the girls and the youngest two being the boys.
From the moment of adoption I’ve see God working even in the midst of such devastation that we endured prior to the point of adoption.
I was twelve years old when I made a conscious decision to follow Jesus. Through the years of education being knocked down, bullied and beat up was an everyday occurrence. In the midst of the trials faced, Jesus began to reveal Himself in a real tangible way through His Word and through Holy Spirit.
At the age of 17 I was baptised, and not long afterwards, I was baptised in Holy Spirit and speaking in Tongues. God began to speak to me about the future, which as the years went by the door opened to attend Mattersey Bible College to study for a degree in Theology and Biblical Studies, graduating in 2019.
I’m passionate for Jesus, have a love for people which stems from my love for Jesus. I have a mandate to see lives saved, healed, set-free, forgiven, and made whole.
I have a real burning desire to be saturated within the Presence of Holy Spirit. For that is where life should be lived from; The secret place.
A tribute to Pete, Nicola and family
Liberty Church Swinton has come through various degrees of transition over the past years, and it is with much appreciation and thanks to the previous Pastor Peter and family for steadying the ship and seeing us through the harsh realities of lockdowns and much restriction over the past couple of years. Getting us prepared and ready to push on into the next exciting season ahead.
We honour Pastor Peter and his family for their commitment to stay the course and seeing us through such a difficult time.
