Pastor Tom Brennan – Bible Baptist Church, Dubuque, IA

After six years establishing a church in rural Pennsylvania and sixteen years revitalizing an inner-city church in Chicago, in 2019 Tom Brennan accepted the call to pastor Bible Baptist Church. He and his lovely wife, Mandy, have been married since 1999. They have three children, Jack, Emma, and Sam. Pastor Brennan is happiest at home, surrounded by his family, with a cup of tea to hand and a large stack of books within easy reach. Failing that, he can be found hiking one of the many beautiful trails here in Dubuque or slowly barbecuing something on his smoker.

In addition to pastoring, the Lord has given him an active writing ministry. Birthed in 2014, Brennan’s Pen includes a blog, daily emails designed for men in ministry, and three books to date. You can find more about his writing by perusing his blog,, or his author website,
