Dr. Thomas E. Kalb has faithfully served our congregation as pastor since his ordination in 2004. Our church family has been blessed by his bold, clear, biblical and practical preaching and teaching. His evangelistic heart is evident to all who hear him, for he desires that all should hear the gospel of Jesus Christ and then through faith come to know the Lord Jesus Christ in a personal way, receiving Christ's righteousness, and experiencing His love, forgiveness and strength to face today's struggles.
Prior to assuming the pastorate here at First Baptist, he served for thirteen years as the Teaching Leader for the Men's BSF (Bible Study Fellowship) class which met in Middletown, NJ. He is also known by many as a chiropractor. For eight years he also served as a Member of Technical Staff at AT&T Bell Telephone Laboratories in Holmdel, NJ.
Pastor Tom graduated from Dallas Theological Seminary with his CGS (certificate in graduate studies). Prior to his seminary training, he earned his doctorate in Chiropractic from New York Chiropractic College. His M.S. Degree in Computer Science is from Stevens Institute of Technology, while his B.S in Mathematics was conferred by NYU Poly.
He is married to Nancy, and they have been blessed with 3 daughters, who are now all married, and 8 grandchildren.
His hobbies include tennis with his wife and children, and spending time with his grandchildren.
