Thomas Griffin's Bio

A software consultant with over a decade of teaching high school physics in his past, Tom grew up in San Leandro, California, where he found the love of his life, Carol.

He started reciting Scripture in 1997 and has led hundreds of people through the process of preparing to recite. He has worked with individuals, small teams, and large groups developing the craft of recitation. The recitations range from single passages to complex, multi-language compositions.

Blessed with two incredible daughters and the best friends one could imagine, Tom lives in Frankfurt, Germany, where he recently transitioned from two decades as a consulting technical manager with a global software company, to being the executive director of the By Heart recitation ministry, promoting Scripture recitation wherever he goes.

He desires to make the Bible more accessible and meaningful by speaking it in a way that is natural and clear while staying true to the original intent.

Core Value: Well Done

Tom defines his Core Value as:

Using the available resources to do the best job possible with “best” being based on the type of job, whether its relational, mechanical, creative, or contemplative. No slacking. Playing well, working well, listening well.

Matthew 25:21 “His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’”
