Tom Pembleton – Pastor & Certified Christian Life Coach
Tom has ministered to churches in Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky, Maryland, New Mexico, and Texas for the past 49 years. The variety of church size, location, and demographics has provided a wealth of experience and knowledge about life and ministry that Tom brings to Christian Coaching.
Born and raised in Indianapolis, Indiana, Tom graduated from a vocational high school and then went to Cincinnati Christian University and majored in Bible and ministry. While at CCU, he sang in a male quartet and preached on weekends in several churches in Kentucky, Indiana, and Ohio. Planting a church in the Dayton, Ohio area was one of the major life lessons in his ministry. The greatest challenge, however, was successfully making it through “Mid-Life-Crisis” and not losing faith in God, wife, and family.
Recently serving as senior minister at Story Road Christian Church in Irving, Texas, for seventeen years and merging with Compass Christian Church in Colleyville, Texas, has added a host of experience and challenges. His Story has provided a great opportunity to share and minister to other ministers, pastors, and leaders as they deal with life and ministry.
Tom and his wife, Marcia, have been married for 49 years and have three children and nine grandchildren, all actively involved in the church. He enjoys fixing things – as the sign says over the garage door, “Grandpa’s Fix-it Shop.”
