It is my delight to have my friend, Tommy Park, preach for us this Sunday. Tommy and I have known each other for many years and have served together on Presbytery's Examining and Reformed University Fellowship Committees. Although Tommy is no stranger to Cross Creek, I thought I should include a photo of the Park family (which they have added to) and a biography that can be found on the RUF at UNF website for those who are new to our church.
Tommy is the campus minister for RUF at UNF and the Jacksonville metro area. Tommy grew up in Orange Park, FL. He graduated from Trinity College in New Port Richey, FL, with a B.A. in Biblical Studies. Tommy received his Master's of Divinity from Reformed Theological Seminary in Orlando, FL, in 2007. Tommy served at River Ridge Presbyterian Church in youth ministry eight years before moving to Jacksonville to minister to college students. Tommy enjoys watching football (GO JAGS!!!), crossfit, surfing, playing racquetball, playing sports, and Starbucks coffee.
Tommy's wife, Nikki, grew up in Cape Coral, FL. She graduated with a B.S. in Elementary Education from Clearwater Christian College. After college, Nikki taught middle school English for six years before giving birth to their beautiful daughter, Naphtili Grace, in 2007. She loves being a mother. Nikki also enjoys reading, walking, shopping, Starbucks, the beach, being outdoors, and spending time with her family. She also teaches with Classical Conversations.
Men, we will be meeting tonight at 7 pm at the church to continue our study in Habakkuk. Hope to see you tonight!
Reminder that our Fall Festival is this Saturday!
