The Word Unleashed

The Word Unleashed aired on KVTT 91.7 FM in Dallas Fort-Worth from 2008-2010. Since 2012 the programs have been published exclusively online.

Tom’s pulpit ministry at Countryside Bible Church provides the source material for the series you hear on The Word Unleashed.

The Word Unleashed is founded upon one principle: God has given you every spiritual resource you need to grow in Jesus Christ, and you find those resources in His all-sufficient Word (2 Pet. 1:3). That’s why Tom embraces expository preaching — an approach that seeks to understand what the original authors of Scripture meant, rather than an approach that reads our own meaning into it.

If that's what you've been looking for, you've come to the right place.

It's our prayer that the transforming power of God’s Word be unleashed in your life.
