Life Verses:

1 Peter 1:3-9   3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4 to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you, 5 who by God's power are being guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. 6 In this you rejoice, though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials, 7 so that the tested genuineness of your faith—more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire—may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ. 8 Though you have not seen him, you love him. Though you do not now see him, you believe in him and rejoice with joy that is inexpressible and filled with glory, 9 obtaining the outcome of your faith, the salvation of your souls.

Student Ministry Pastoral Intern

Tom Ferguson

My family and I came to FCBC back in November of 2016. I have lived in many different states since my father was in the Navy for 20 years. When he retired we landed back in Port Orchard, Washington. I graduated from South Kitsap High School in 1994 and married my school sweetheart in 1995. I have been apart of Student Ministries for over 20 years and look forward to leading and teaching the students in what it means to love God, exalt Christ, revere scripture and what it means to build His kingdom. I have a passion for the word of God to be preached, to be taught, and to be lived out. I also want to see the Youth of the church seek and cultivate their relationship with Christ and to put their faith into action.
