Rev. Thomas N. Detamore, Jr.

Pastor Tom joined the pastoral staff at Ardena Baptist Church in 2002 serving as Youth Pastor, and in 2006 he was ordained and accepted the call to become Senior Pastor upon the retirement of Rev. Harvey Kelley.  His responsibilities include preaching, visitation and shepherding the congregation.

Raised in a Christian home, Tom accepted Christ as his Savior at a young age and was involved with the youth and Christian Service Brigade programs at his church.  He later felt a strong calling into full-time ministry and pursued a path of further Christian education.  He is a graduate of Nyack College, received a Master’s of Science in Bible from Philadelphia Biblical University and a Master’s of Divinity from Liberty University.

Tom married the love of his life Kristin in 2002, and they have two sons, Tyler and Andrew.
