Thomas has called the Grandview Woodlands neighbourhood home for my entire life. Participating in the rhythms, seasons, programs, and pursuits of the Grandview Calvary Baptist Church has been a significant part of his life. The church’s engagement in the neighbourhood and pursuit of justice both here and throughout the world, has helped cultivate within him a commitment to these as well. Another shaping influence on his life has been the experience of growing up in community houses, living with more than 40 different people over the course of my life. Many really good initiatives have developed out of a non profit organization birthed out of Grandview Calvary, named Salsbury Community Society. After being closely connected to this organization for many years, In 2014 Thomas joined the Salsbury Board, spending the last year and a half as chair. Their focus is currently on providing affordable housing and encouraging, supporting and facilitating community in their neighbourhood.
