Tom Becker, Executive Pastor, has a long and rich history with Cary Alliance. His family first moved here when he was a young teen, and he became active in the youth group and grew in the faith as a result. He and Miriam met in college; and after graduation they married and returned to Cary Alliance, where Tom served as Assistant Pastor under Mitchell from 1990-1994. Now, after 20 years of ministry in Russia, they have returned to the church, which is like coming home. Tom holds a Master’s degree in theological studies from Wheaton College Graduate School and a Master of Divinity from Columbia International University. Tom and Miriam have four children: Ross, Anna and Carrie are all grown and pursuing life and careers. Eight year old Jamie is the icing on the cake. Tom enjoys just about all things out-doors, and Carrie has been his companion in many varied sporting interests.
