Tom Owens

Tom Henderson Owens is a pastor, social justice advocate, hospitality veteran, trail running addict, and modern theologian. A Virginia native, Tom moved to Denver CO where he received a Masters of Divinity with distinction at the Iliff School of Theology, was pictured in 5280 magazine for his work with Euclid Hall bar and restaurant and served as the Associate Pastor at Denver’s very first congregation, Trinity United Methodist Church. He is moving to the Asheville area with his partner, Ann Henderson Owens, to become the Executive Director of Open Door Ministries in Waynesville, North Carolina. His call is to bridge the chasm between “liberal” and “conservative” Christian theology and use his life experiences with both to help create a more unified Church mission based on dignity, respectful dialogue, and radical inclusion. He finds that in addition to cultural competence, compassionate missional work can be paramount to that effort as it fulfills the greatest of all God’s commandments to simply love others
