In 1990 Tom went up to King’s College, Cambridge, to study Earth Sciences. As a student he was immediately active as a Christian, sharing the gospel and rejuvenating the Christian Union in his college. He went on to train as an assistant minister at Eden Baptist Church in Cambridge from 1995 to 2002. With his ability to engage people of all ages and backgrounds he was soon recognised as ‘one of the finest preachers of his generation’.
