  • TOm Hoffman

    Tom became a Born Again Christian when he was 9 years old after hearing a lesson in Sunday School.  Since then, Tom has grown in his faith in Jesus Christ, and in doing so, realize how much he continually need Christ's grace and mercy.  Tom has learned that we are all sinners saved by grace alone.  Tom attends Fellowship Bible Church for the fellowship and accountability of other Christians, to grow in his knowledge of the Trinity, to serve and worship God, and to build on my relationship with Him.   Tom's favorite Bible character is Job since he lost everything and even though he questioned Him, his faith never wavered in God.  Tom is married to his wife, Jocelyn, and has two boys and one girl.  In his free time, Tom enjoys watching sports and spending time with family and friends.
