Pastor Tom and his wife, Georgiann have served in church leadership for over 40 years. Pastor Tom experienced a radical life change when he came into relationship with Christ while serving in the Navy off the coast of Vietnam in 1971.
He was discipled by a group of dedicated men who modeled for him what it means to be a whole-hearted follower of Christ. He soon became the leader of the Christian group on his ship which he led for the next two years.
Pastor Tom graduated from Central Bible College in Springfield, MO, and has had a life-long passion for teaching the Word of God and leading the local church. He also enjoys having the opportunity to train men and women in discipleship and leadership training.
The teaching of God’s Word is of great importance to us here at Summit Springs. Pastor Tom is known for his style of teaching that brings the truths from the pages of the Bible to real life application.
Georgiann has a great love for the local church and the family of God. She enjoys leading the women’s ministry, teaching Bible studies, and keeping the church family connected overseeing the church website, newsletter, and social media.
The Manz’ are blessed with a wonderful family consisting of their daughter, son-in-law, son and daughter-in-law and six “amazing” grandchildren.
