TRUSTEE PASTORAL ADVISOR
Thomas Nelson migrated to the United Kingdom from Ghana in 2002 to study, and shortly after his studies in PGCE - Secondary Mathematics, appointed as a teacher for fourteen years in a college in Aintree, Liverpool. Following several years of teaching, Thomas decided to resign from his position as a teacher in December 2020 to work for himself in the financial sector. At the professional level, Thomas is working as an Executive Vice President in Genistar, a company with the mission to teach families how money works and to help them become debt free and financially independent. In church, Thomas is part of Church leadership at Grace Family Church in Aigburth, Liverpool.
Thomas has other academic qualifications in BSc. Computer Science, BA in Practical Theology, MSc in Management Studies from Universities in Ghana and England. In 2008, Thomas served as a trustee for a Charity, Chara Trust, for two years to support the trust in strategy formulation. His recent decision to quit teaching to purse a job in the financial sector dovetails his personal, professional and his ministry goals. The reasons are twofold. Firstly, financial education and financial freedom forms a critical element significantly responsible for separations and instabilities within the family unit. Though as a professional objective, I have always considered my role in the marketplace as a ministry and an opportunity to support families regain financial independence. Secondly, inherent in the position is the potential of owning my own franchise in future and more importantly the opportunity to have the much-needed time to pursue my God-given purpose and assignment in life.
In October 2006, Thomas was ordained a pastor in The New Life Church (TNLC) in Toxteth, Liverpool where He served in different capacities in church leadership including teaching midweek bible studies, discipleship classes and being a choir leader at the same time. In 2016, after completing a BA in Practical Theology from Grace Fountain Church in Wigan, an affiliation of Crossroads Theological Seminary in Texas, USA, Thomas accepted the opportunity to lecture in the same bible school after his graduation.
In his new role as a trustee in Blessed To Be A Blessing (BTBAB), Thomas is looking forward to working with the team not only to serve in his area of responsibility with passion but also to learn in spirit-led organisational environment. As a Pastoral Advisor, Thomas is seeking an increase in God’s grace and anointing that would allow him not only to minister to those in need of healing of the mind, soul and body but also to encourage others to serve in their God given purpose by spending quality time with the team through the direction and guidance of the Holy Spirit. Thomas is supported in Ministry by His wife, Eunice, their three children: Michael, Andrew and Jesse. Thomas’ ultimate desire is to is to see people fully embrace God’s love and walk in victory and power while experiencing the fullness of God’s promises.
