Tom Curran, Facilities Manager

It is a pleasure helping out with business matters and other tasks in support of North Point Church. My wife Lani, I and our 3 children, joined North Point in 2000. Lani and I have both enjoyed being able to serve on Session and as Deacons. We have also been blessed by the many friends we’ve met here and by joining in several enriching Small Groups along the way. We love it here!

My past work includes 12 years on active duty in the Navy followed by 24 years in full time private practice as an Oral Surgeon. Over the last three years, being in part-time practice, it has been a joy being more able to participate in the challenging and important work of serving and loving our Lord and our neighbors at North Point Church.
