I am Tommy and I was born some twenty-nine years ago in the great state of Oklahoma. I was a packaged deal from day one; I have a twin and his name is Bobby. We are opposites in just about every way possible. Three days after our eighth birthday we received a gift from my mom and dad and they named that gift Dylan. I have a beautiful black pug named Winston.

At the age of seven God drew me to Himself and I responded in faith. I knew that I had done plenty of wrong and because I did wrong I was separated from God. I knew that I deserved to experience the wrath of God because of my disobedience. But, Christ loved me so much that he willingly gave his life for me. He lived the life that I could not and died the death that I deserved. I believe that on the cross the full wrath of God was poured out on His Son and because of this, my sins have been forgiven. Scripture assures us that without the shedding of blood there can be no forgiveness of sins. I confidently rest in the fact that the blood will never lose its power.

By the grace and mercy of God I am allowed to be a part of Southern Hills Baptist Church. They do well to love me, encourage me, challenge me, and rebuke me. This is where I have found my closest friends and they have very much so become a part of my family. I serve this local body as the Minister to Senior Adults.

I am a graduate of the University of Central Oklahoma (2016) and Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary (2018).
