Welcoming Tom Burger to With Open Eyes

With Open Eyes has continued to pursue our mission of accelerating the gospel among the most unreached parts of the earth. God continues to bless our team and bring like-minded individuals into our ministry. On behalf of With Open Eyes, I am very pleased to make the following organizational announcement.

Tom Burger has joined our team as Administrative Chaplain and Partner Relationship Manager. Tom will work with the team to support our mobile messengers, work with our partners and donors, and assist with events throughout the world that raise both resources and awareness. Tom will work closely with Mary Lance McGinn and Sheri Sloan, as a key member of our leadership team. I know you will enjoy Tom’s personality and passion, and hope that you get to meet him soon.

Tom comes to With Open Eyes from AnchorPoint Prison Ministry, which he founded in 1996. Through AnchorPoint he has served as the facility chaplain at both Charlotte Correctional Center (1997-2011) and Piedmont Correctional Institution (2012-Present). He is also the founder of Healing House, a ministry to ex-offenders, and is the author of a correspondence Bible study course (42 studies) currently in use in three hundred forty prisons in thirty states. In 2014, Tom published the book Simple Faith, Uncomplicated Faith for a Complicated Life. Tom’s passion is to see people come to faith in Jesus Christ and to grow into mature believers actively living out their faith every day. He brings a wealth of experience and a love of teaching God’s Word and equipping believers to excel in God’s unique call for their lives.

Tom and his wife, Sharon have been married thirty four years. They have three daughters, all grown and married and five grandchildren. He describes himself as a husband, father, grandfather, preacher, teacher, writer and an avid (but not very skilled) fly fisherman. But most of all, he is just a follower of Jesus learning to see grace in the many ways God extends it to His children.

Please join me in welcoming Tom and his family to With Open Eyes!

In Him,

Frank Harrison
