Tommy, a native of Mississippi, joined the staff at Dawson in 2015. He has a Bachelor of Science degree from Baylor University and a Master of Arts degree from Southwestern Theological Seminary. Tommy has served churches in Texas, Tennessee, North Carolina, and now Birmingham in the area of recreation ministry for over 33 years. His life's passion is to use sports ministry to connect people of the world with the Gospel of Christ! Sports is a natural "draw" to gain the attention of people who are disconnected with a relationship with Christ. By investing in discipleship and mentoring of leaders, we can expand our sphere of influence in the lives of others. He has been a part of many discipleship groups and he looks forward to being a part of this growing opportunity at Dawson. Tommy has been guided in his life by at least two verses: Proverbs 3:5-6 and Psalm 19:14. These verses speak of God's sovereign leadership in our lives and His priority In our lives. He is married to Karee Keathley Lunceford and together they have a daughter, Lauren and a son, Luke. Luke is married to Amy Thomas Lunceford and they have one child, Ella Jane Lunceford.
