Psalm 23 Ministry

Inmates are locked up because they break man's law. But we all break God's law. I thank the Lord that He gave us a way to restore our fellowship with Him!

Matthew 25:36, says "I was in prison, and you came and visited me." Verse 40 says "Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

By admitting that we've broken God's law and believing that Jesus is Lord, we can have the peace that only comes from putting our complete trust in Him. I'm from a very different background than most prisoners. But through my illness, God has given me ways to relate.  -  About Tom

About the Ministry

Over the years, P23 has been involved in different aspects of ministry. Currently, my wife and I are missionaries that volunteer support to pastoral staff in New England. As a volunteer chaplain, I visit inmates in Maine jails and prisons, sharing the message that so many desperately need to hear. I always ask the Lord to use me and He continues to open doors!

Our primary purpose is to minister and to share His hope to the hopeless and the forgotten. My greatest desire is to tell people what the Lord has done for me and to share our mission, to tell others the gospel message of Jesus Christ! Our heart's desire is to bring glory and honor to Him and see His kingdom advanced.

All people here need His message. Read the article below.  

A Bangor Daily News article from May of 2012 entitled “Maine – the least-religious state in the nation” states that Maine has fewer residents who claim a religious affiliation than any other state in the union. Maine is the only one in the country in which less than 30 percent of the population belong to any religious denomination or independent Christian church.  Keep in mind that they are including all religious affiliations in that 30 percent.  Catholicism still dominates as the largest religious group in Maine.  Other surveys have shown that New England — Maine in particular — is more secular than the rest of the nation.  The article goes on to say that 8 out of every 1,000 people in Maine are Mormons.  The International Pentecostal Holiness Church was the fastest growing denomination of the last decade with only 3 congregations and a total of 174 members.  It is because of statistics like these that evangelicals and fundamentalists see Maine, Vermont and New Hampshire as very important, wide-open mission fields.  (BDN article)

Some Testimonials


Danny Funderburk

Danny FunderburkAs I was beginning my fulltime career with the Cathedral Quartet, I met a young man that was faced with a world of opposition. Crippled and confined to a wheelchair that was supposed to contain him for the rest of his life with seemingly no hope in sight. One would think that his life would be over, but not in Tom's case. Never have I met anyone as strong as Tom, with such a desire to live a full life. Tom truly knew where his strength arose!

The message that Tom shares will make you realize that faith in yourself and to a living God will provide miracles in your life. Tom always told me that he would walk again. I must be honest, when I saw him for the first time, I couldn't ever see him coming out of a wheelchair. Now my faith in my savior is so much stronger since Tom has conquered the odds!
