In Memorium: Tom White (1947-2012)

Tom White, Executive Director for The Voice of the Martyrs, died suddenly on Wednesday, April 18, 2012 at VOM’s headquarters in Bartlesville, OK. The Voice of the Martyrs has been a long-time ministry partner with Persecution Project Foundation, and Tom’s leadership will be greatly missed.

The Voice of the Martyrs issued the following statement on their website:

It is with great sadness that The Voice of the Martyrs announces the death of our Executive Director, Tom White.

Tom led The Voice of the Martyrs for more than 20 years, including years of incredible growth in the ministry’s reach to support and work with persecuted Christians and to share their stories with the American Church. Prior to taking leadership of the ministry he worked alongside VOM’s founders, Richard and Sabina Wurmbrand.

All of our hearts are heavy at this loss, and most of all heavy for Ofelia, Tom’s loyal help-mate through years of ministry, including 17 months he spent in a Cuban prison, and for his children and grandchildren.
