Tom Stanton from the Texas Methodist Foundation has been invited to preach on why we give money to the church. Tom has worked in inner-city and international ministry projects for more than 30 years. He served for 10 years as a Chancellor to a United Methodist Conference and now serves as General Counsel for TMF. Prior to coming to TMF, Tom practiced law with an emphasis on mediation, mental health, child welfare, and civil rights.
At TMF, Tom supports and encourages laity and clergy to see generosity and stewardship as the “gateway” to one’s growth in discipleship. He has a bachelor’s degree in Theology and Economics from Georgetown University and a law degree from the University of Texas School of Law.
Tom is a dynamic lay preacher and we are so blessed to have him. Along with his other work, every summer Tom heads up a mission to Africa to work along side of folks and offer them Christ, even as their lives are made better. The Congo Project for Relief worked this summer in Mulunguishi and Kolwezi building a medical clinic.
