be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them
that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good
things!” Romans 10:15 (KJV)/span>
- Chris Thomas, Minister of Music
- God called Chris into the Music Ministry several years
before he would give in and answer that call. He kept
turning God down with the excuse of not being qualified for
the job; until the day someone reminded Chris, God doesn't
always call those that are qualified, but yet he always
qualifies those that are called. Chris loves the Lord and
loves serving him as the Minister of Music & Outreach at
Tom's Creek Baptist Church along with his wife Kathy and
their two girls Kristin & Kathryn.
