As a small boy, Tom Jones attended a camp meeting service, where his grandfather lifted him high to see the Glory Cloud hovering over the crowds. In that moment, a passion to press into the heart of God and pursue revival was lit.
As an adult, this passion was rekindled at John Wimber's "Signs and Wonders" conference in the mid-1980's and later by the Brownsville and Toronto Revivals. Tom met Randy Clark in 1999 and this was the beginning of a God-ordained friendship. He began traveling with and for Randy the following year, bringing his church members along to encounter the supernatural with them. In 2003, while traveling with Global Awakening, Tom had an encounter with the Holy Spirit that changed the course of his life forever.
Randy regularly ministered in Tom’s church, declaring it 1 of 4 churches in the world that received and maintained a corporate healing anointing. Tom led his local church through renewal and revival, spiritually fathering and releasing many into new ministries and nations. Then in 2005, at the climax of his pastoral ministry, Tom laid everything down in obedience to God’s call. Randy heard of this decision and immediately invited Tom to come on staff at Global Awakening. Bringing over 40 years of ministry experience as an educator, church planter, and pastor, Tom is now the Executive Director, overseer of the Apostolic Network (ANGA), and international speaker. In 2009, Tom received his Masters in Organizational Leadership from Regent University, and in 2013 he graduated from United Theological Seminary with his Doctor of Ministry.
Traveling over 3/4ths of the year, Tom Jones carries a healing anointing, a passion for revival, and the Father’s love. Like his grandfather before him, he provokes people to lift up their eyes and encounter the presence of God, blessing and releasing them to passionately pursue their destiny.
Tom and his wife, Brenda, have been married for 38 years and have two children, Christina Kile and Brian. Christina is married to Clay Kile; they have two children, David and Camy. Tom and Brenda currently live in Cleveland, Tenn. For more information, visit their website at www.lifegivers.org.
