Rev. Thomas Harper came to know of God's Love and salvation that is available to him through Jesus Christ and accepted him as his Savior and Lord at an early age. After receiving his call to the Gospel Ministry in 1995.

He was then ordained at his home church, First Baptist Church of Vinton VA. Under the Leadership of Rev. Dr. Henry A. Lindsey, heprepared and strengthened my leadership skills by acquiring a Bachelor of Arts and a Masters of Divinity at Richmond VA Seminary.

His goal is through his ministry as a committed servant to strive to effectively proclaim the Good News of God's Love and to help others encounter God by causing a THIRST for him and his Love. He wants all to know that Jesus excepts as we are but he is going to renew us with his precious Blood.

He has been blessed with a wonderful companion' His wife Jeanie and from their union they have been further blessed with our five children, Cornelia, Heather, Thomas, Wayne and Brianna. 

His interested in many activities which include reading, mentoring, visiting the elderly, fishing, and spending Quality time with my family. 

His life Verse is - For we know all things work together for good of them that Love God and to them who are called according to his purpose.
