Leadership

Tom Golden
Lead Pastor

Tom and Krista were married in July of '98. They have enjoyed many adventures in their 20 plus years of ministry throughout Ohio, Texas and Florida. Their reoccurring theme for their home and church is to make both places a safe place for people to be comforted and hear from God. The devil wants to kill, steal and destroy, but God wants you to run to Him and be in a safe place.

Tom and Krista are servant minded people. This theme echo’s throughout their life and ministry. Jesus came to serve, not to be served. Therefore, Tom and Krista feel strongly about serving God and serving others. This is a significant part of true worship, and a sure way to demonstrate love to God and others, according to Romans 12:1.

The Golden's are super blessed by God's gifts in both of their children, Levi and Molly. Both are honor roll students, take advanced classes and attend school and play ball at Dunnellon Middle and High Schools.

Tom serves as the Dunnellon Police Department Chaplain and serves as the Dunnellon high school football team chaplain. He announces Dunnellon's JV and Varsity football games and Varsity baseball games when available.

Tom and Krista believe it's important to spend quality time as a family as often as possible. The Golden's enjoy motorcycling across the states, boating in the afternoons, an annual family vacation, and mentoring Levi and Molly in their relationship with Christ, in the classroom and on the ball fields.
