In May, 2007 he received his Master of Arts degree in Christian Counseling and Discipleship from Capital Bible Seminary in Lanham, MD. He worked in the electric utility industry for nearly 25 years until December 2004 when he retired to pursue God’s call to the teaching ministry and counseling full time.
Thomas has served with the Aftercare Program of Prison Fellowship where he worked with men recently released from incarceration. He has also traveled with Here’s Life Washington, a division of Campus Crusade for Christ, on short mission trips to St. Vincent, Windward Islands. For over 10 years he has served as a counselor with the Lott Carey Foreign Missions Youth Seminar at Shaw University in Raleigh, N.C. During this week long seminar he worked with 14-18 year old adolescents providing supervision, Spiritual and personal guidance.
Thomas presently works at the Adult Rehabilitation Center of the Salvation Army in Hyattsville, MD. Since October 2005 He has been counseling and teaching men one-on-one and in groups. He counsels men who are addicted, troubled and challenged by life to re-establish relationships with family friends and society. He also provides marriage counseling when requested by the men and their wives. As an associate minister at the Tabernacle Baptist Church in Washington, D.C. he has done premarital and marital counseling.
Thomas’ desire is to minister to men who have addictions and afflictions and see these men become new creations through a new or renewed relationship with Christ; to see them grow spiritually and become independent, self-sufficient men in Christ.
