Tom Bomhof

Tom Bomhof has been a pastor for over thirty years in churches in Alberta and BC before coming to Community CRC. He loves finding ways for church members to engage their communities and neighbourhoods with the love of Jesus. Tom has recently started studying toward a certificate in Restorative Practices. Tom is married to Jodie, a teacher, and they have three adult children who live on the West coast. Tom is a Canucks fan who will cheer for the Maple Leafs until they play the Canucks. He likes gardening, homemade pizza, craft beer, and exploring this beautiful province by foot and kayak.
