Rev. Dr. Tom Harrington, Senior Pastor, started his ministry at UBC in 2016 and is excited to see how God will use him in this new capacity. Tom obtained his B.A. at Vanderbilt University, and after earning graduate degrees at both Texas A&M University and Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, he received his Ph.D. in Religious Studies from Marquette University. Prior to coming to UBC, Tom served as Senior Pastor at Northwest Baptist Church in Milwaukee, Wisconsin for fourteen years. In that capacity, Tom’s overarching passion was to lead the congregation to meet the physical and spiritual needs of those in the immediate neighborhoods surrounding the church. In addition, from 2001-2012, he taught various theology classes at Marquette University. Before being called to the ministry, Tom had a broad variety of work experience, including working as a commercial real estate valuator and consultant for Ernst & Young, in Houston, Texas. All of this has allowed him to bring a wealth of both “real world” and “real ministry” experience to his pastoral work. Tom and his wife, Susan, have three children, Will, Joe, and Helen.
