Christ Presbyterian Church
Fernandiana Beach, FL
Tom and Ann arrived in Fernandina Beach, from Charlotte, NC, in November 2021 to begin planting Christ Presbyterian Church, for the ARPC.
Tom comes to the ARP after 35 years serving in the PCA as a church planter, developer of church planters, and senior pastor. Having earned a Ph.D. at the London School of Theology studying John Calvin’s approach to training his church planters, Tom has a heart to see the ARP become even more effective in reaching people and starting new churches. Tom also serves as the Director of Church Planting for the Florida Presbytery and teaches church planting for Birmingham Theological Seminary.
Tom and Ann have been meeting people through the Chamber of Commerce, Rotary, a cycling club, a new-comers club, a pickleball league, their new neighborhood, and the Community Bible Study, among others. The Lord has blessed their early efforts with a growing network of acquaintances, among whom are several families who already are interested in the church plant.
