About Tom Gonderman


Tom Gonderman is a former pastor, raised in Eastern Washington.  He was saved at an early age, and after college he served as a police officer in Washington State.  During this time he married his wife Heidi and changed careers to that of a Firefighter/EMT.  God called him to preach a few years later, and the Gondermans went to Australia to serve as missionaries in 2003.

Bro. Tom pastored the Southland Baptist Church in Sydney for eight years.  During his time as the pastor, God gave him the privilege and opportunity to travel extensively to many mission fields and help in the establishing of new churches, as well as encouraging pastors and equipping young men for the ministry.    One of the great privileges of his life has been to be a help to men of God, to counsel and encourage them, and to enter into their labor for the Lord.

Bro. Tom has a strong desire to help local churches, and as a former pastor on the mission field, he is particularly equipped to help and encourage pastors and their families in the work of the ministry.  He has gone through the deputation process, and understands the unique position of being a missionary on the foreign field, but he also understands what it is to pastor a large and growing church.   As the Lord showed favor in the work, he was able to train and send men to the fields of South America and the Pacific Islands, as well as see men trained and equipped to take over the church in Sydney. 

Our Faith

  • In the Bible, the Authorized KJV, as the Infallible, Inspired, Perfectly Preserved Word of God
  • In the Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ
  • In the Virgin Birth, Substitutionary Atonement, and Bodily Resurrection of Jesus Christ
  • In Salvation by Grace through Faith
  • In the literal return of Jesus Christ in the air for His saints
  • In a literal Hell for the lost and a literal Heaven for the saved
  • In the local church as God's ordained institution for carrying out His plan in this world.

Our Ministry and the Call of God

The Lord has directed the Gonderman's into a season of recovery and refreshing.  As Heidi is rebuilding her own health and strength, Bro. Tom is active in Evangelism in the Northwest, and seeking to help and encourage pastors and churches in that region as the Lord opens the doors.  If you are interested in having him minister, or if he can be a help to you in any way, please contact him.









Heidi’s Testimony


Heidi Gonderman was raised in a Christian home in eastern Washington and was saved at an early age.   She grew up on horseback, living in the country, but willingly went to the mission field and served the Lord alongside of her husband.  Over the years God blessed her with five wonderful children; four boys and one girl.

In 2013 she was diagnosed with breast cancer, and for the following year she underwent surgeries, chemotherapy and radiation as treatment.  Although a very difficult year for her personally, the Lord showed favor and helped her through the trial of not only dealing with cancer, but going through it with her children watching her. 

Heidi has a sweet and gentle spirit, and has been asked to teach ladies meetings and Sunday School classes about faith and resting in God.  She is a gifted counselor, and has helped many ladies in their personal lives and marriages.
