Tom is Professor of Biblical Practice and Chaplain to Veterans at Lipscomb University in Nashville, TN.
Tom’s passion and commitment to veterans comes from his prior service in the United States Marine Corps, as well as several years of service with the United States Government, serving in Washington, D. C. and Europe. He has been long committed to improving the transition process for today’s veterans as they return to civilian life. He has dedicated years of service to veterans on and off campus in many capacities, resulting in being among the University’s most respected faculty.
While teaching Bible classes at Lipscomb, Tom identified a need for a faith-based course, focusing on spiritual development while addressing physical, mental and moral experiences many veterans have faced in acclimating to the culture following their service. This led to his latest book, God’s Word for Warriors, inspiring Bible courses he now teaches at Lipscomb, local churches, and in the surrounding communities.
Tom’s commitment to future veterans’ success has prompted the launch of the “Endowed Chair for Bible/Chaplaincy” at the college-level and provide assured assistance to veterans in their continuing education. Proceeds from Tom’s book will be distributed to this fund in order to develop, sustain and promote Tom’s continued commitment to veterans for years to come.
