Sean Finnegan came on full time in 2005 with a focus on community and international outreach. He’s also the host of Restitutio, a weekly podcast focused on restoring authentic Christianity and living it out today. He holds a Masters of Theological Studies (MTS) in Early Christian History from Boston University, a BA in Theology from Atlanta Bible College, and a BS in Computer Engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. Sean’s omnivorous appetite has lead him to pursue research in theology, Bible, apologetics, textual criticism, translation, ethics, and church history. However, his greatest passion is the Great Commission–reaching new people with the gospel message and helping Christ-followers deepen their discipleship (Matthew 28:19-20).
Thom has been involved with home Bible fellowships and Christian service since 1984 and part of the Living Hope Family since the church’s formation in September, 1999. Along with having the privilege of assisting with many ministry functions throughout, he helped to coordinate the building of the church, children’s and teen fellowships, various advances, and many ministry events. Thom is active in LHIM’s African ministry support and has visited our sister churches in the Congo countries (the DRC and RC) multiple times. Thom currently coordinates the audio team and serves as Elder and member of the Board of Directors. He encourages anyone to consider getting involved with volunteer service. “It will change your life.” (Ephesians 4:1-15)
