Replenish Festival is pleased to welcome Tom Golly to the stage this year. Like most of us, Tom Golly didn’t always have a voice for Christ. At a young age, he learned that people could not be fully trusted to provide for our needs. As a young man, he struggled with a sense that something was missing. God met Tom where he was a few years ago and realized all those years of searching were over. Tom finally knew what REAL love was, and it didn’t come from a person; he was Loved and valued by God.
Tom hasn’t always been singing, in 2010 Tom was creating quite a buzz doing standup Christian comedy, something he loved and was successful doing. Then God placed a strong message heavily on his heart and soul, “I WANT YOU TO SING!”
Since that day, Tom has immersed himself in music. Starting Reason 4:13 with his wife in 2010, he performed at many churches and led worship all over Long Island, NY. As Reason 4:13 grew, Tom felt called to minister in a larger way, and in August of 2015, moved his family to Nashville.
Since the move, he has been part of Lifepoint Church’s Worship Society under multi-Dove award nominated songwriter/worship leader Travis Ryan; and has written and recorded an EP with Jake Jones and Justin Forshaw (formerly of We As Human) at RMS Studios.
Tom’s EP, Not Going Back, reflects Tom’s life experiences: “I am not going back to being who I was, the more we let Jesus and the Holy Spirit mold us and shape our lives, the more we start to come together as He plans”. Tom hopes Not Going Back will inspire people to step up, rise up and go after whatever it is that God has called them to do. “The world holds people back from walking in their call and it takes faith and perseverance to get there” says Tom.
Tom Golly will take the RESTORE stage at 3:30 on Saturday afternoon. Click here for the festival map and schedule.
