About Tom & Jackie Amlin
Tom Amlin was born and raised in Ohio, living on a farm until he graduated from high school and attended Urbana University. His ambition was to become a basketball coach and math teacher. That changed after visiting Circleville Bible College, now known as Ohio Christian University, where he later received his degree in ministry and counseling. His visit there was to be a fun weekend with friends, but while there, God brought conviction on his life. Tom committed his life to Christ that weekend and met Jackie Small who would become his bride just 14 months later.
Tom and Jackie served together in the pastorate, music ministry, youth camp ministry, evangelism, staff ministry, teaching and missions. Tom has been a licensed minister over 50 years and faced many life experiences. The driving force of his obedience to serve in ministry has been his love for God and people. He has a goal to use his gifts and experiences to help people through the pain of life.
One of Tom’s favorite Bible verses reads:
Isaiah 41:10 “Fear thou not for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness."
