Pastor Tom DeFries


Pastor Tom is responsible for encouraging and maintaining the culture of the church by being an active leader in our ever-growing community. His influence can be felt in his family and faith based sermons.  Pastor Tom has a strong theological background as he graduated from Asbury Seminary and Taylor University.  As our pastor, he plays a crucial role in spiritual growth at St. Paul's United Methodist Church by sharing his contagious optimism, unfaltering faith in Jesus Christ, and sharing God's word.  Pastor Tom is a loving father to his sons, Joel and Ryan and a devoted husband to his extraordinary wife, Kathy.  He enjoys music, coffee, chocolate, and running (Side note: for fun).
