Associate Pastor

Tom Hartung was born in Placer County and raised in Rocklin. In 2013 Tom graduated from William Jessup University with his degree in Bible theology. As the associate pastor of worship arts and community development, Tom has a passion to lead people to Jesus through worship and loving one another. He has led worship for the past 18 years in the Sacramento/Placer area and loves worship of all kinds from the newest songs on the radio to the old hymns.

” worship is at the same time about me and nothing to do with me. Personal and individual, and yet a shared experience together and with all creation before the feet of Jesus whom it is all for” – Tom Hartung                                                                   

Tom has a passion to see the church come together as the family of God. To share meals together, to laugh, have fun, and to care for each other when they are hurting. The church is to be a place of safety and refreshment. The place where your family is at, and where you are most excited to be.

Tom has a passion for leading people in the worship of Jesus Christ and helping disciple others to live a life of worship.

Tom has been married to his lovely wife Christine for 11 years. Christine is a graduate of Citrus Heights Beauty College and is currently working as a hair stylist. In their free time, you can find them at the gym or local parks with their three kids Jude, Jonah, and Aria. Jude Loves to play outside and hunt lizards while Jonah is the artistic introvert and little Aria is full of smiles and loves to dance!

Both Tom and Christine hope you will come to be a part of our Westside family.
