Staff & Ministers

Message From the Minister

Administrative and Ministerial Staff and Church Officers

Every member of Thomas Church is a minister.....as God gifts all people for ministry and to build his kingdom here on earth.  Our congregation is blessed with gifted members who share their time and talents to do God's work here on earth. Our staff serves in leading and encouraging our members to demonstrate Jesus through the ministries to which each has been called. Elders are elected to discern God’s mission for Thomas Church and to assure that our energies and resources are directed to that purpose. Deacons express the compassion of Christ by caring for needs of individuals within and outside the church. Thomas Church is blessed to be a blessing to people in our congregation and community as well as in the world.                              ----The Rev. Dr. William Youmans

Thomas Teams

Thomas Church has put together teams of volunteers who serve to help carry out the ministries of the church. The teams are led by Elders (members of Session) and staffed by committed volunteers. Teams are ways for individuals to live out their faith while providing opportunites for spiritual growth, Christian fellowship, hospitality, service to others, care and compassion, and leadership to members of the church. It is through these teams and their ministries that Thomas Church glorifies God.  For more information about these teams, or if you would like to be involved, please contact the church at:   office@thomaspres.org
