Pastor Tommy Puryear and wife, Wanda

My Purpose in life: As a Christian is to “Share the Light, Love, and Life of Jesus.” It is with great joy that I do this through preaching, teaching, and disciplining people with the talents and gifts the Lord has given to me! 

My Favorite Thing About Tar Heel Baptist Church Is: the People. They are wonderful examples of what it is to be followers of Christ. 

When I’m Not Working, I:
enjoy working with wood. I also like to fish, hunt, and I love to spend time with my family! 

One Thing Most People Don’t Know About Me Is: that Wanda and I got married right out of High School and her mother had to sign for her to get married because she was still 17. She is the only girl I ever dated.
