A veteran of the Christian music scene since the 80's, Tom Franzak brings his own blend of music, ministry, humor and humanity to gatherings and events across North America. Formerly a secular rock musician, Tom’s personal experience of God and his return to the Church motivate his desire to use his musical talents to help others get in touch with their own experience of God, and Christ’s call to discipleship.
Tom was trained in the areas of youth and young adult ministry as well as music and worship, and has worked on a local and national level since 1983. He has written and recorded six collections of his compositions. Tom has traveled extensively giving concerts and workshops using contemporary music as a tool for evangelization, and has performed at most diocesan and national conferences across the US and Canada. He lives in Bethel Park, PA with his wife, Rene’ and their three children TJ, Lucy and Daniel.
Tom is currently Director of Music at St. James the Apostle in New Bedford, PA and Contemporary Choir Director at St. Catherine of Sweden Church in Wildwood, PA.
