Tom VanderPloeg

Lead Pastor

Pastor Tom works with Horizon’s council and staff to lead the ministries of Horizon Community Church.  His passion is for people to dig deeply into the Bible and learn about God through his Word.  It is Pastor Tom’s desire to equip people to carry out the calling that God has placed upon all Christians -- a calling to be a disciple of Christ, and a servant to others.  Pastor Tom, with his wife, Laura, and four children moved to Colorado in 2010 to join the Horizon family.  Pastor Tom loves cooking.  In his spare time, he can be found in the kitchen experimenting with new recipes, or in the cellar crafting a few batches of homemade wines.
