Associate Pastor of Worship & Communities
Tom Smith joined our church staff in November of 2020. While he is new on staff, he is not new to Northview. Tom was saved and baptized at Northview in 2004 and served here until 2014 in various roles. He likes to say that he “grew up here” and while he has been gone for some time, he has always considered Northview home. He and his wife, Tiffany, and their three children have served the Lord in full time ministry since 2014 across Texas and Colorado. Tom strives to provide worship opportunities that encourage participation of all generations and looks for ways to help people grow in their understanding of how we can properly worship our Lord. Tom will be working not only with our worship ministry but also helping to find ways to encourage Northview to continue serving outside of our walls into the community as we have done for so many years.
