Tom Rich

Faith Development Pastoroffice: 317-773-2233 ext. 120

As Faith Development Pastor, Tom is responsible for the integration of our Faith Development Plan throughout the entire church. The Faith Development Plan (Establish Faith, Form Character, Live Missionally & Influence Others) is our holistic approach toward seeing each person become the person Christ has called them to be. Nothing brings him more joy than seeing a person deepen their relationship with Jesus and trust God with their entire life, and his desire is to see everyone at WRCC take the "next step" in their faith journey.

Tom is also fascinated by the scriptures; he loves how God uses this ancient text to speak truth to our present world. He believes that "leaders are readers", and you can often find him reading a book on theology or leadership. Prior to coming to White River, received his Master of Divinity from Fuller Theological Seminary and also holds an undergraduate degree from Texas A&M University. Tom lives in Noblesville with his wife of 12 years, Rebecca, and his daughter, Abbie (expecting kiddo number 2 soon!).

Hobbies: smoking a vast array of meats (He is a BBQ snob from Texas), Running, cheering on Texas A&M Football & Liverpool FC and spending time with friends and family outside on the patio.
