Leadership & Staff
Tom Harcus was raised in a very religious home. He was an altar boy who, over several years, attended church on a daily basis. Although grateful for his spiritual heritage this left him dissatisfied and longing for something more.
This changed in 1978, when as a student at Purdue University, Christ became forever real and personal to him. The change has continued now for over 30 years. These changes have brought about a difference in relationships. Having previously not been able to be committed to a woman for more than 6 months, he has now been married for 25 years to his bride, Dawn. Tom and Dawn have two children, Josh (21) who is currently a student at UNCW and Erika (9) who is in Kindergarten.
After graduating from Purdue’s Krannert School of Business and working in corporate America, Tom attended Talbot and Masters’ Seminaries. He has served on the pastoral staff of three churches over the last 20 years of ministry, which includes 13 years as the founding pastor of Mountain View Community Church (1992-2005) in Fort Collins, Colorado. Tom received his doctorate in Leadership for the Global City from Bakke Graduate University in Seattle in June 2005.
Tom and Dawn are the more active types. Along with keeping up with their children, Tom stays active competing in triathlons (swim, bike and run), surfing, tennis, fishing, hunting, and playing guitar.
