Nashville, Tennessee and Belmont Church are home base for Tom Lane and his wife Patty though much of the time you’ll find him out leading worship or involved with missions and music somewhere around the world. His songs are on Integrity, Maranatha, Cokesbury, and other International projects and his singing and guitar playing have been teamed with some of the greatest talents in Christian music over the past twenty years. The heart of his expression is in his work with “The Bridge-A Joseph Co.,” a ministry which serves the creative community and targets youth worldwide. Live-“Tom operates in a unique marriage of skillful musicianship, worship and intercession.” His latest album “Deliverance” clearly reflects a passion to worship God and to see the salvation, healing, and deliverance of all people in this generation!
Music, Ministry, and Missions Profile
Music and ministry have always gone together for Tom but it was missions which gave him focus and vision for his life’s work. “It was revelatory and life changing for me to discover in my twenties that God primarily intended my talent for His own pleasure and that He didn’t call me first to succeed with it but to serve Him with it. When I stopped looking for deals He showed me fields ripe with need which responded to the natural gifts and talents He put within me!” That change gave way to a deep love for the Nations which has since placed Tom in 15 countries and before many different people groups, furthering his work with youth, worship, and International music.
His leadership along with his music have also helped provide the foundation of ministries such as: Provision, The Foundry, and The Crucible in Nashville, Camp Alpha Youth Camps, and The Bridge-A Joseph Co. which he currently leads-making a way for and facilitating other creatively gifted people like himself to hit their targets. Look for Bridge events, conferences, music, and artists worldwide!
