Second Baptist Church Pastor and Staff

The Reverend Tom Carr, pastor began his ministry as pastor of Second Baptist on September 16, 2013. His primary interests are in preaching, worship leadership, teaching and spiritual growth. He understands his role as pastor is to help individuals and communities deepen their spiritual lives and believes that "the disciplines of worship, study, prayer, meditation and small group conversation can prepare the soul for deeper encounters with God through Christ." He completed a two-year internship program in spiritual direction, an ancient practice of the Church intended to assist others in their spiritual journey and life of prayer. For many years Tom has been deeply involved in issues of environmental justice and care of God's creation; he is the co-founder of the state-wide interfaith, Interreligious Eco-Justice Network. He and his wife, Peg, have two adult children, Geoff and Sarah. Photo by Paulette Mertes Studios
