Meet our Director, Tom Barron
Tom Barron is the Pastor and the Executive Director of the House of Prayer. He has been a pastor for 16 years. Tom has been married for 33 years to his wife, Mary and together they have 3 children and 2 grandchildren. They are all born-again Christians that have dedicated their lives to serving the Lord. After being released from a kidnapping experience while on a mission trip in Haiti, Tom heard the Lord speak to him, immediately before his release, through the Word of God found in Isaiah 60:1. “ARISE, shine; for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you.” This word brought forth a passion and mission to bring new life to those captive to drug and alcohol addiction. The vision for the House of Prayer the Lord gave to him was birthed in 2008 and continues to unfold today. Glory be to God!!

House Manager, Angel Amoros
Angel Amoros moved to North Carolina in 2004 running away from life. For 36 years he battled alcohol addiction never knowing his true identity and who he really was. He recalled that before he came to the House of Prayer his identity was unknown to him until he surrendered his life to the Lord at the HOP. He said that GOD has opened the eyes of his heart and revealed to him who he is in Christ. Angel said that he is forever grateful for being a part of the HOP and being allowed the opportunity to continue to live and grow in Christ and help others realize how much GOD truly loves us and what he has done. He has two very loving boys, Noah who is age 6 and Gabriel who is age 3.
