Born and raised in Santa Barbara, California, Pastor Tommy became a Christian in 1990, after attending Calvary Chapel Santa Barbara with his then fiancé Debi. He fell in love with Jesus and with His Word. He was hired at CCSB as the janitor but quickly moved to being the children’s pastor after being raised up in the church and ordained. Several years after serving as the CCSB children’s pastor, his senior pastor, Ricky Ryan sent Tommy and his family to Vail, Colorado to start Calvary Chapel Vail Valley where he has been serving as senior pastor for the past 14 years. Tommy has continually grown in his passion for the Word of God; and his desire is to see others come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ and grow in their love of our Savior and His Word.
