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!!
Qualified Professional, Mary Barron

House Manager, Angel Amoros
I would like to say that The House of Prayer has helped me through one of the darkest times in my life. I used to think that I was the source of my own sanity (I knew what was best for me) but I learned that I was actually my own enemy. I would always internalize my problems, was always worried and anxious. I used alcohol to suppress my worry and anxiety and was never satisfied with any accomplishments in my life, mostly because I lost sight of who I truly was as a person. While at The House of Prayer, by reading and learning how to study the bible and it’s teachings, I have learned that the only source of victory in my life is through the Holy Spirit. The House of Prayer truly is a place of worship and without question has changed my life and the lives of many to become mighty men of GOD.

Assistant House Manager, Matt Kellam
I am from Virginia Beach, VA. I came to The House of Prayer March 31, 2017 lost and broken with no hope for a future. Shortly after I arrived, I accepted Jesus Christ as my savior and He gave me new life. Of all the places I could have gone to grow closer to God, He chose The House of Prayer in Jamestown, NC. I’m SO glad I came here and let God transform me. I’m SO blessed I am able to serve God and The House of Prayer ministry.
