Meet our Pastor

Dr. Tom Richter

Raised in the college town of Murray, KY, Tom grew up in a Christian home.  God saved him as a young boy and as a teenager, Tom surrendered to God's call to ministry.

After High School, Tom earned a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature from Murray State University, a Master of Divinity (M.Div.) from Princeton Theological Seminary, and a Doctorate of Ministry (D.Min.) from Beeson Divinity School at Samford University.

Tom speaks around the country with the simple goal of making much of Jesus.

Before moving to Cullman, AL Tom served for 14 years as a pastor in New York City at New Hope Christian Church. New Hope is located in the Jamaica neighborhood of Queens, NYC.

Tom and his wife Jackie (Dobson) have three children, Katie, Carson, and Anna.
