Pastor Thomas Mielke – Discipleship 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 our “Discipleship” pastor, which means that his work primarily focuses on the spiritual growth of our members, both young and old.  He is directly involved in organizing all the Bible classes, our Underground program, and our Teen program.  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 enjoy 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.
