The Division of Overseas Ministries is delighted to announce the appointment of Tom Morse as Executive for Mission Education and Interpretation. Tom has worked with DOM/Global Ministries since 2007, serving 5 years in China with the Amity Foundation and Drum Tower Hospital before working as the program associate for Resource Development.
In his previous position, Tom worked closely with colleagues to redesign the Global Ministries website and weekly updates as well as strengthening online giving and engagement. He was also involved with the creation of the READY and REACH and led the fundraising efforts for the appointment of Anne Gregory to Thailand.
“I am so grateful for the opportunities I have had to participate in God’s Mission through Global Ministries,” he said, “And I look forward to continuing that journey in this new capacity.”
Tom brings with him a passion for justice, human rights, and mission history. He is also a self-described nerd.
“The internet gives us so many opportunities to engage more deeply in relationships internationally and domestically.” He shared, “I look forward to working with colleagues to provide new ways of connecting Disciple and UCC congregations in the exciting ministries of international partners.”
Tom is a member of Central Christian Church in Indianapolis, Indiana. He is currently working on a Master’s degree in Philanthropic Studies at the Lilly Family School of Philanthropy. Tom met his wife Lynnea while serving in China, and they are expecting a baby girl this August.
“I look forward to continuing my work among the amazing people at Global Ministries. I feel privileged to work side-by-side with individuals who are not only committed to the work, but are committed to the many partnerships that have been nurtured around the world.”
Tom began his work as the Mission Education and Interpretation Executive on June 22, 2015 in the Indianapolis office.
