Pastor Tom Owen
At the age of 21 my life's journey forever changed when I came to know Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. I soon realized that He was calling me into the ministry, but I wasn't exactly sure what that meant. So I loaded up the car and drove to Chattanooga, Tennessee, to start my college education all over again at Tennessee Temple University, earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Bible. It was there the Lord fine-tuned my ministry goals, had me meet the wife of my dreams, and taught me how to better help people become growing disciples of Christ. A few years later I went back to school and earned a Masters Degree in Church Ministries from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary.
My wife Lisette is an elementary teacher for Florida Virtual Schools and my three college-aged children all take part in the ministry.
For over twenty-five years now I've been blessed to work in churches in Texas, Tennessee, Illinois, and Florida as a Student Ministries Pastor and as a Senior Pastor. I love helping people grow in their faith by teaching them God's Word and by helping them get connected with others in the church. Our small groups ministry is a great place for that and I'm so privileged to be a part of what God is doing here at Indian Rocks!
