Manna Church Sanford’s vision to change the world has been impacting lives in the greater Sanford area for nearly two decades. Our church family was thrilled in 2015 when Pastor Tom Johnson was called to serve as Lead Pastor.
Tom is an ordained minister bringing more than 25 years of full-time ministry experience to Manna Sanford. He holds a Masters of Divinity from Liberty University and is a Doctoral candidate at Regent University. Tom’s passion to equip emerging leaders has led him around the world to facilitate training seminars and conferences. Tom currently serves as the Dean of Doctoral Studies at Grace College of Divinity in Fayetteville, NC.
He loves teaching God's Word, building up leaders, helping families thrive, and equipping people to change their world.
Tom and his wife Julie recently celebrated 35 years of marriage and have four adult children and four grandchildren. Julie holds a Master’s in Practical Theology and Intercultural Studies from Regent University and teaches Intercultural Studies at Grace College of Divinity.
“Come home. Come as you are, but don’t expect to stay as you are…expect to experience amazing changes.”—Tom Johnson
