Rev. Dr. Thomas K. Tewell is known for his ability to revitalize churches! He joins us with a special message based around 2 Corinthians 5:14-21 and Birmingham's 50th Anniversary of the Civil Rights Movement. Make plans to join us!
The Rev. Dr. Thomas K. Tewell has been an ordained Presbyterian Minister for over 35 years and has served congregations in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania and New Providence, New Jersey, as well as the 5,100 member Memorial Drive Presbyterian Church in Houston, Texas and the 3,500 member Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church in New York City. Each of the congregations Tom has served has experienced significant numerical, spiritual and financial growth and has become deeply involved in ministry to the local community. The Memorial Drive Church in Houston is a Dollar for Dollar Church who gives one dollar to the needs of the world for every dollar they spend on themselves. Under Tom's leadership, the Fifth Avenue Church developed a significant ministry to the homeless in New York City and has mentored other congregations in ministry to the homeless and the poor.
Tom has been invited to speak at conferences and in congregations all over America and has taught seminars on preaching, leadership and stewardship at numerous Theological Seminaries and Divinity Schools including Princeton, Drew, Pittsburgh, Columbia, San Francisco and Fuller, among others. Dr. Tewell has been honored to preach and lead seminars at summer conference centers including Chautauqua, NY, Montreat and Linville, NC, Mo Ranch, TX, Ocean Grove and Ocean City, NJ, Lakeside, OH and Epworth Heights, MI among others. Tom served as a Trustee of Princeton Theological Seminary for 15 years.
Dr. Tewell is the recipient of numerous awards for his preaching and social ministry to a world in need. He is the recipient of the Inter Faith Service Award for starting a ministry to persons with A.I.D.S. in Houston, Texas and the Social Ministry Award from the Council of Churches of the City of New York for his work with the homeless.
Tom is a graduate of Muskingum University in Ohio, Princeton Theological Seminary in New Jersey and earned his Doctor of Ministry Degree from Drew Theological School in New Jersey. In addition, he has been awarded two honorary doctoral degrees; one from Grove City College in Pennsylvania and the other from his alma mater, Muskingum University.
Since 2008, Tom has served as the Executive Director of Faith Based Ministries for the CF Foundation in Atlanta, Georgia. One of the programs he leads is the Macedonian Ministries Program, in which a clergy cohort from the same geographical area, comes together to form a learning community and a supportive community with peers in ministry.
Tom and his wife Suzanne, a pre-school teacher and educator, have been married for 40 years and they have two married sons and four grand-children.

Upon public revelation of his suspension from the ministry, Tewell also resigned as chairman of the Board of Trustees of Princeton Theological Seminary.
The Greater Atlanta Presbytery report on Tewell's Pilot Project says the program is being funded by The CF Foundation, which "actively seeks to turn around the membership losses of the PCUSA."
The report said the foundation is a family foundation of Tom and Ann Cousins.
Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church: History, 3 Sept 2012 [cached]
Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church renewed its long relationship with Princeton Theological Seminary in 1994, when a protégé of Dr. Kirkland, Rev. Dr. Thomas K. Tewell, was invited to the church as senior pastor.
Dr. Tewell had held that position at the 5,000-member Memorial Drive Presbyterian Church in Houston. Under his leadership, Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church established the Center for Christian Studies, which grew rapidly into a highly regarded center of religious education.
In 2003, for the first time since our sanctuary was built in 1875 and our church house in 1925, Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church underwent a major renovation and expansion project. More than five years of prayerful study brought forth a comprehensive plan for construction, renovation, and mission, including a new Christian Education Center carved from the unused space below the sanctuary; complete renovation of the 10-story church house; as well as air-conditioning and fire proofing systems.
In August of 2005, Dr. Tewell resigned from FAPC, at a time when membership had grown to more than 3,550.
