Tom Schwolert bio
I live in Texas with his wife of 30 years, Melanie. We have two daughters, Zoey (22) and Jazzy (26). We were also blessed with a son, Max, who died from an infection after getting the flu at the age of 17 on December 29th, 2012. We have a non-profit that provides $5000 scholarships to youth who exemplify a life of love for God and others. More on this at lovetothemax.org.
In my free time, I enjoy playing guitar and singing, fishing, golfing, playing racquetball and spending time with family.
I spent more than 26 years in youth and family ministry at churches in Minnesota and Texas. I then worked for Vibrant Faith for 3 years doing coaching and training for ministry leaders.
I am interim pastor at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church in Garland, TX on my way to be ordained as a pastor in the ELCA Lutheran Church.
