His first time in church, as a suburban Philadelphia teenager, Tom literally thought the pastor was cursing when he heard, "Jesus Christ". That night, Tom discovered Jesus is not a swear word, but now his best friend & Savior. God changed this city boy who learned to handle everything with his fist, to now arming him with a Bible, an gifting him with an incrediable way of relating to people, a hillarious sense of humor, illusion talent and a passion to share his amazing story.
Tom resides in Grand Rapids, MI and is a father of two amazing children (ages 14 + 12). Tom is on fire for the Lord more than ever in his life. He is one of the most passionate speakers you will ever hear! His passion comes from giving ALL glory to Jesus for taking his past mistakes and MESS-ups and turning them into a MESSage.
"In the Bible, God used a murderer, adulterer, prostitute and even a christian killer for his glory. This will forever blow my mind that God forgives our pasts and gives us a future. I just want to be a man after God's own heart. I am undeserving & humbled to have been called by God to serve him. I am grateful for the RED STAMP (made of JESUS BLOOD) on the list of all my filthy, dirty, guilty, ashamed and repented of sins that reads boldly, ALL IS FORGIVEN! TOM IS NOW FREE TO SERVE JESUS!!! All I can say is WOW, Thank you Jesus." states Tom.
Tom is currently writing a book called, "GODmance". This book is to encourage people to have a romance with Jesus. Jesus is constantly wooing us to himself! When life situations look grim or relationships fail, Jesus will always be there arms open wide. Tom wants you to fall in love with Jesus all over again and when you do, it will affect your relationship with your friends, co-workers, boyfriend/girlfriend, spouse and even your enemies! Being in a GODmance will teach you to be content in your life and to strive to be Jesus to everyone you come in contact with. It starts by realizing Jesus loves you and sees you as BEAUTIFUL.
"You are altogether beautiful, my love; there is no flaw in you." Solomon 4:7.

Are you looking for a unique ministry christians would love to invite their non-churched friends & family to? Look no further. Imagine a show that relates to all ages, is full of comedy, has mind-blowing illusions and a powerful, clear presentation of the Gospel?
Tom Coverly's Faith, Comedy & Illusion Tour was developed from Tom's 17 years of pastoral experience to create an effective evangelistic outreach event that literally has witnessed thousands of people surrendering to Jesus Christ every year.
It's a 90 minute event that uses tons of hilarious audience participation and a professional world class show to gain the attention and respect of the audience. Towards the end of the show, Tom states, "everything up to this point in the show has been an illusion. Now, I want to share reality (Truth) with you." Tom then shares the Gospel by telling his own personal story of the the day he discovered Jesus.
Tom's prayer is that the audience will be MORE blown away by who JESUS is than his illusions ... their usual response by the end of the show is, "I want to know in a personal way, how I can have a relationship with the same Jesus that changed Tom's life." Are you ready to bring this amazing ministry to YOUR city?
