About Saved By His Grace

Saved By His Grace, founded in 2003, is a ministry of committed Christians who love the Lord Jesus Christ and are dedicated to sharing His Word, Love, Truth, Mercy and Saving Grace throughout the world, that all might know it is by Grace alone by which we have been given eternal life in Christ.

From 1994-1997 He served as an Elder at Christ Church of the Ascension in Paradise Valley, Arizona.

Beginning in 1999, Tom has taken part on numerous evangelical church planting missions trips to Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay, with e3 Partners of Dallas, Texas to spread the Gospel message and plant new Evangelical churches in those countries. Mission trips are sponsored through e3 Partners, along with Iglesia Cristiana Evangelica Florida in San Lorenzo, Paraguay. Translators are provided by Parabla du Vida Bible Institute in Argentina. A sister organization, Su Refugio, an orphanage project established by Scott Kvandal of Marantha Chapel in San Diego, to assist the homeless children in Paraguay and Argentina, opened it’s doors in July of 2009.

From 2001-2002 Tom was the Executive Director of the Arizona Alliance for Community and Faith Based Action, a 501c3 non profit organization formed by a number of Christians living in the Phoenix area, to aid and financially assist Faith Based and Community organizations in the state of Arizona.

The mission of Saved By His Grace is for the Glory, Grace, Truth, Love, Forgiveness and Saving Knowledge of Jesus Christ to be proclaimed throughout the world in a loving and personal way. Other individuals who assisted in the formation of this ministry include Thomas M. Bartel and John “Bo” Derning.
