I grew up in a single-parent home with my mother raising four children. I have one brother and two sisters. I lived in Chino, California until I was 21 years of age. I moved to Rancho Cucamonga for two years, then moved to San Jacinto, California. I was raised a Catholic. I was an altar boy. I have worked many different jobs. Before moving to SAN JACINTO, I was owner operator of Tom’s Best Gardening. I moved to SAN JACINTO and my fiancé Patty worked for a Christian Doctor, who shared Christ with us.
The Lord was putting many people in my life that had personal relationships with Him. In 1992 things had gotten very rough for me. I attended a potluck Bible study and at that point many people were praying for me. One of the gentleman at the Bible study was a roofing contractor and offered me a job for the day. He had great discernment. God used him in a mighty way. It was his birthday that day, and on that day I surrendered my life to Jesus, and we celebrated two births, mine being born again. January 10, 1992 at one in the afternoon I became born-again. As John 3:3-6 talks about “Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” Nicodemus said to Him, “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born?” Jesus answered, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.” From that point on I began to seek a closer walk with the Lord.
February 15, 1992 I married my fiancé. At that time we began to see the Lord do many wonderful things. That day, the Lord called me to give everything away that He did not give me, so the enemy would have no glory in my life. I gave my home to my brother-in-law (Patty’s brother) and all my furniture away. We lived with my mother and I went through Bible College.
I became a Pastor in 1999. My journey began by assisting a pastor and going to the park to feed the homeless and hungry and God said you’ve given them clothing and food for their body now I want you to give them something for their soul. So I began sharing my testimony and God put a burden upon my heart for the brokenhearted. At this point I was given the opportunity to share at a couple of churches. I realized I had a gift to interpret God’s word to people. I was nervous, scared, and happy all at the same time. I realized I had a calling.
So to wrap it up, I realize God was showing me how to have a balance. it was my personal walk with him to take care my family and to be a good shepherd of God’s flock. I serve as an assistant pastor at Free Indeed Christian fellowship and I’m the senior pastor of House of Luke Ministries, which is a ministry of restoration.

I have a wonderful wife. We get to pray together, read together, and serve in ministry together.
I have two children, both boys, Tommy and Christopher, four grandchildren, two boys, two girls, and one girl on the way. My oldest son lives out of state. My youngest son lives around the corner and I see him every day, and we get to serve the Lord together. I’m also a pastor of Christian Motorcycle Ministry that he loves to be involved with. My wife and I have been blessed to be 30 years together. My wife and I and The House of Luke Ministry are very involved with Calvary Chapel Bible College and Murrieta Conference Center.
In His Service,
Pastor Tom Prokop
