tom editTom Mansbarger: Senior Pastor                                 (e-mail: tom@graceccmarion.org)

I graduated from Eastbrook High School in 1970. I married my childhood sweetheart, Diane and we have been married 45 years. We have two sons Jeff and Tim, five grandchildren, and one great grandchild. I was a pipe-fitter, and in 1980 the Lord pressed on my heart that I needed to be doing something else. The idea of becoming a pastor was beyond a foreign idea, but the Lord continued to work on my heart and I wasn’t content until I did it. I then earned a B.A. in Pastoral Ministry, a Masters in Pastoral Counseling from Luther Rice Seminary, and a Doctorate of Theology from International Seminary. In 1993, we decided to start Grace Community Church, where I am still serving as the pastor.
