Tom Riley agreed to join the Nolen Hills congregation as a minister in July of 2017 in addition to his responsibilities at Lipscomb University where he teaches bible and works with church development.

Tom has worked with several churches throughout his ministry ranging from Tennessee to Arizona.  This is the third church plant that Tom has been involved as a minister.  Tom’s counseling, personal work and small group bible study experience make him the ideal support to our Leadership Team and for this important work in the Nolensville community.

Tom met his wife Anne at David Lipscomb College (Lipscomb University).   Now, two children and two grandchildren later, their decades of service to God has brought them back to Middle Tennessee to utilize all their personal work and life experiences to help serve the Nolen Hills congregation and this community as we strive to bring the message and promise of Jesus to those that seek Him and to encourage and support those that are broken, hurting and need Him.
