Tom Faulk, and his wife Laura, were both born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio. In March of 1978 they attended a Sunday morning service at the Cleveland Baptist Church in Brooklyn, Ohio and under the preaching of Dr. Roy Thompson, they accepted Christ as their personal Saviour. The Lord worked quickly in their hearts, lives, and home and as a result, in October of 1978, Pastor Faulk surrendered to the call of God to serve in full-time ministry. To prepare for ministry he put his newly-purchased house up for sale, and enrolled in Bible College in the Fall of 1979 and earned a Bachelor of Science Degree majoring in pastoral theology. Pastor Faulk had the privilege of serving on staff at Cleveland Baptist Church from 1991-1997. He moved to NH in ’97 and served at Victory Baptist Church in Londonderry, NH for 11 yrs where he started and directed an evening Bible Institute. After several years of searching and praying about the Lord’s will an exciting but challenging door opened in Groton, MA. In August of 2009 he became the senior pastor of the First Baptist Church in Groton, Massachusetts. First Baptist was essentially a re-start. Since 2009 however and by God's grace FBC has grown steadily in missions giving, in local outreach, in ministry in general, as well as numerically. In March of 2015 Pastor Faulk was asked to be the moderator of the New England Baptist Fellowship and accepted the invitation in April of 2015. The NEBF is a fellowship of independent Baptist pastors, evangelists, and missionaries in the Northeast. Pastor Faulk and his wife Laura were married on June 21, 1974 and together, they have faithfully served the Lord for nearly 40 years. They have 4 children and 11 grandchildren living in Tennessee, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts.
