Pastor Thomas Mielke – Associate Pastor


Pastor Tom Mielke came to St. Matthew in December of 2008, after serving congregations in Garden Grove, CA, Maribel, WI, and South Windsor, CT.   He is spearheading a “coffee house” outreach initiative in the area, while still maintaining a presence and involvement on the Mason Street campus.  He remains involved in leading worship, Bible classes and other areas of ministry.  He and his wife Laura have five children: Nicole, Andrew, Leah, Caleb and Megan.  He likes to follow politics and the entertainment industry, so he enjoys seeing movies and watching various television programs in his spare time.  He also enjoys traveling and watching lots of sports, especially baseball and football.  He seeks to be relational with people, and particularly enjoys teaching classes and sharing the truth of the Gospel with people, while expanding their understanding of the Scriptures.
