Rev. Dr. Tom Barlow is an Ordained Elder in the Mountain Sky Conference of the United Methodist Church. He is appointed as Senior Pastor of Littleton United Methodist Church, in Littleton, Colorado, and teaches as Adjunct Faculty at the Iliff School of Theology in the areas of Methodism and Leadership.
Dr. Barlow holds a B.S. in Organizational Management from Colorado Christian University, an M.Div. from Asbury Theological Seminary, and a PhD in Religious and Theological Studies from the University of Denver and the Iliff School of Theology.
After a successful career in corporate america, Tom now combines his experience and training in management and ministry with a passion for vital Christianity (at both personal and congregational levels), working with churches and faith-based non-profits on leadership and vision. He was one of six researchers in the Toward Vitality project, which examined the common traits of vibrant, engaging United Methodist churches across the United States.
He presently lives in the Denver area with his wife, Kirsten, who is also an Ordained Elder serving in parish ministry. Kirsten and Tom are the proud leaders of a pack which includes several energetic Shelties.
Tom is (sometimes) available for consultation with churches, and pastoral coaching, through UnStuckChurch.net.
