New Providence Primitive Baptist Church is blessed to have Elder Tommy Boring as Pastor and leader of our flock. Tommy has been pastor to the church since January 2003 and in that time we have seen several ministries grow in the church. Tommy is a strong believer in family values and he and his wife Teresa have raised four children. They both have a heart for strengthening marriage and the family and are quick to support the biblical lessons and guidelines given to us in God’s Word. Even though Tommy began as pastor of NPPBC in 2003, he actually began his walk with God at the age of nine at the altar in New Providence. His extended family has been in the church for many years, so at nine years old in a regular church service, he found himself lost and surrendered to God and was saved at NPPBC. We at New Providence are thankful for Tommy and all the men that have led us and delivered God’s Word throughout the years.
Born in Vero Beach, Florida, Tommy moved to Blount county, Tennessee in 1975 where his family holds deep roots. The oldest of three children, Tommy attended the University of Tennessee and graduated with a Bachelor of Science, Business Administration and a Marketing major.
Tommy and his wife Teresa were married at New Providence Primitive Baptist Church June of 1985. His first full-time church ministry was at Meadow Branch Primitive Baptist Church where he served as their pastor for 2 years and 9 months. Tommy and Teresa have 3 sons; Christopher, Justin and Blake.
In October of 1991 Tommy was called as pastor of Edgewood Primitive Baptist Church and stayed until October of 2002 fulfilling God’s call for Edgewood.
Since January 2003, he has been the pastor of NPPBC. His two oldest children are married and live in the Maryville area. He and Teresa welcomed their first grandchild in February of 2016 and are expecting their second late of 2017.
