Title/Position:Church Relations Director, Office for Philanthropy
Tom joined the Office for Philanthropy as a Philanthropic Advisor in 2011, focusing on major gifts for student scholarship funds. In his work, he increasingly found himself involved in congregations, coordinating LTSP’s “Seminary Sunday” program and the “Stewards of Abundance” initiative, attending wider-church functions, and meeting with ministry leaders. As a result, Tom is now serving as Church Relations Director, but continues his efforts around raising scholarship dollars.
Tom has a background in the financial services industry, previously working as a Financial Advisor with Thrivent Financial for Lutherans. He also served as Director of Admissions at Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary. He has prior experience in congregational, outdoor, and youth ministry settings.
A native of Scotland and raised in Charleston, South Carolina, Tom is a graduate of Newberry College and Southern Seminary, both in South Carolina. He is the proud father of Cullen and they live in Conshohocken, Pennsylvania. In his spare time, Tom enjoys playing golf poorly, cooking well, spending time with friends abundantly, and following his beloved Clemson Tigers passionately.
