After graduating from university, Tom obtained a position as the senior loan officer in charge of a mortgage company’s most active branch. At the same time, he also worked with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s department as a volunteer chaplain in men’s, women’s, and youth correctional facilities, giving Christian Science services and one-on-one interviews. These experiences gave him many opportunities to rely on and prove the power of God’s laws of goodness and harmony, which govern all of creation and bring immeasurable benefits to all mankind, even in the most adverse situations.

Tom now devotes himself to the full-time public healing ministry of Christian Science. While serving on the Board of Lectureship, Tom has spoken at probation facilities, universities, public schools, churches, and for public service groups — like those serving homeless and at risk youth — as well as in other general public venues. He gives lectures in English and French.

 "To organize a church designed to commemorate the word and works of our Master, which should reinstate primitive Christianity and its lost element of healing."Manual of The Mother Church, Mary Baker Eddy, p. 17:8

Meet Our Pastor 

Our Sunday services are conducted by two members who read a sermon consisting of citations from The King James version of the Bible and the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy.

These books have been designated as our Pastor by Mrs. Eddy. This is the same sermon given at every Christian Science church worldwide.  In addition, hymns, an inspirational solo, other scriptural selections, and time for silent prayer comprise our hour-long service.
