First Baptist Church of Lebanon Connecticut
Pastor Tom Cowger
I grew up in Colorado, which makes me a lifelong Denver Bronco fan! I met my lovely wife Debbie while attending North Park Theological Seminary in Chicago. She attended College on the same campus. We’ve been married 34 years and have served churches in Michigan, Illinois, and Connecticut. Our daughter Johanna and her husband Ryan, and their adorable son Carson and daughter Zoe live in Connecticut, and our son Soren lives in the mountains of Colorado, teaching people to snow board and fly fish.
The overwhelming love of God, so freely given to everyone, everywhere, all the time, whether they know it or not is the reason why I’m a pastor. I love sharing God’s love in Jesus and hearing and seeing the love of God come alive in people’s lives. I enjoy the wonders of nature. Attracting birds to our home, gardening, walking with our dogs in the woods, spending time at the beach, and especially being with family and friends.
