We met Drummond in 1976, and were led by the Holy Spirit to join his ministry that same year. Like so many others we learned and trained for future work in Gods vinyard. He will be missed by many, but celebrated in heaven. Our prayers to Charlotte and the family.

A true friend, a true big brother. and selfless Pastor, Teacher and Evangelist. I will miss Drummond dearly. I have been truly Blessed to be part of such a wonderful life! I've known drummond from the late 70's from Deeper Life Christian Center to Durban South Africa where I stay at present. Many times I was blessed to spend time with Drummond and Charlotte and every time was action packed and full of fun,laughter and also challenged to draw closer to the Lord. I will miss being able to get in the car and drive to another meeting to touch someones heart as Drummond was always ready to do at the drop of a hat. If we all would take a few pages out of Drummonds life our lives would be enriched by the Word of God that was alive in him and is alive in us. I give God the Glory for the things He has Done.
I Love you my extended family,

Dear Charlotte & Family.

My husband Dave and I were so sorry to hear of Drummond's passing. May the Lord comfort you with His peace during this time and give you that needed inner strength that only He can give you for the days ahead.

Charlotte, you and Drummond came and ministered here in Central Florida some years ago. We attended some of your meetings. One night I was looking over some of his teaching materials wishing I could afford to buy them, but was financially strapped at the time. Drummon spoke up and was kind enough to let me take them with me that night and told me that I could the money when I could afford it. I never forgot that! He truly had a servant's heart and will be sorely missed by us all. Thanks again for your love and kindness.

Please give Robyn our love also. Thanks.

With Love & Prayers for You All,

Diana & Dave Hartling.

Even though the news of Pastor Drummond Thom's departure came as a shock, it is comforting to know that he served a God who took him Home to be with Him forever.

As a faithful Sower he sowed the Good Seed of the Word of God wherever the Lord took him to. He is leaving behind a legacy of spiritual nature which is worthy of emulation for all Christian leaders that he served the Lord till his last breath.

The Lord gave me a prophecy through Pastor Drummond way back in 1995 which reaffirmed my unique role in the Kingdom of God - the prophecy was - "The Lord called me to be His Voice and not the Echo and there are many echoes."

The Lord orchestrated events that I could meet Pastor Marvey and Sister Frances Wood and it was they who introduced me to Pastor Drummond in 1995. With their encouragement and support I was able to make the Voice of God heard in India and in 20 other countries so far.

I could not believe my eyes when I first met Pastor Drummond that Pastor Marvey had brought me to the very Author whose study materials I photocopied and extensively used in my teachings in India!

Pastor Drummond shall always be remembered by us in India. We convey our deep condolences to Sister Charlotte, the family members and the Church members.

Over 20 years ago we went to Deeper Life and were so blessed by the Thoms'. Charlotte and Drummond were always available no matter where you were. We were introduced to Kim Clement at their church. Heaven is celebrating his arrival. We thank God for the blessing of Pastor Drummond.So many changed lives through his gifts.

I think one of the only things that makes someone passing any easier, is knowing that they lived their life to the fullest and loved those around them. This was especially true of Uncle Drummond. He was always in a good mood, always had something positive to say, and by reading the other messages on this site, had a huge impact on many peoples' lives. We are sad to see him go and our prayers are with the family.

Drummond and Charlotte are among our dearest friends. We have been together in America, Mexico, England, South America, India, and someday will be together forever in Heaven. There is so much I could tell. In 1995 a young man named Selvakumar Prabhakar came to the United States to visit for the first time. He had met my youth pastor in New Delhi. While he was visiting I felt I should take him to see Drummond. On the way to Louisville, Bro. Selva told me about the Bible College he was affiliated with. He told me about a man visiting the college and the bible study materials he had shown him. He said he had wanted those materials so much but the man couldn't spare them. Bro. Selva had taken one book on fasting to the office of the bible college and had photocopied every page. He said this was the type of material he needed to teach his bible students. We arrived at Deeper Life and were standing in the foyer and Bro. Selva began pulling on my coat sleeve. "Pastor, Pastor, see that book, that book on fasting? That's the book I photocopied before I left India. You have brought me to the man who wrote the books." Suddenly Drummond came from his office, took a copy of all his study materials from the tables and told Bro. Selva; "God told me to sow these into your ministry." Then during the service Drummond prophesied over him and told him "he would be a voice and not an echo" Since that time Bro. Selva has taken the Gospel of Jesus Christ to over 20 nations of the world. Someday, Drummond, Charlotte, Selva, Frances and I will be together in Heaven. I wonder how many people will be with us because of this one divine encounter God arranged in Louisville Ky.

I can not even begin to tell you what Brother Drummond Thom meant to me. Most days, we talked at least once a day, and sometimes more. His Faith, Character, Love of God, Divotation, Joy, Good Humor, and most of all his Friendship has forever left a mark on my life.

My thoughts and prayers are with Charlotte, Jennifer and the whole family, Drummond was a light that will not easily be replaced, he has touched so many lives around the globe and most important here in our little town Louisville, he has married us, dedicated our children and helped our family in times of sorrow. I know that my grandma(Regina Journey) and sister(Regina Collins) are up there with you and you all are having awesome conversations in Heaven. Thank you to both Drummond and Charlotte for all your years of service to the lord.

I will be eternally grateful for the message of faith delivered by Drummond and Charlotte as I was a new believer in 1978. I can remember the excitement as the Word was brought to LIFE at DLCC. I was truly ushered into the kingdom (as thousands have been) by the teaching of this wonderful couple. Many thoughts and prayers for Charlotte, Jennifer and family. What a joy to have known him! I can only imagine the rewards he is to reap.

My husband and I were always delighted to hear that Drummond Thom was scheduled to come to our church in southwest Virginia. Brother Thom brought an exciting message of faith and hope, healing and deliverance. Peace dominated his services with a beautiful call to worship. His thrilling stories of faith were overwhelming. Not only did they build your faith, but they were so interesting you could hardly wait to hear what he was going to say next. His unique way of ministering gladdened the hearts of all who heard him. We consider it such a blessing that we were privileged to sit under the teaching of such a powerful man of God. To Charlotte, Robyn and all the family, may God's peace be your peace now, and may His love comfort you in the days ahead. We are praying for the entire Thom family. Our prayer is that you remain strong in the Lord and power of His might.

I am proud to say that I am the original "Drummondnite". There are not the words to express how I feel. He is more than any title anyone could place on him. I was blessed to know and learn from him since I was 5 years old even sitting at his feet in his last service. I rejoice for him to be in God getting all the answers we sought and walking with the Generals of Faith that he was writing about. Our lives will never be the same until we are reunited again. Upon our reunion it will be PHENOMINAL!!!!

I am very proud to be the original "Drummondinite" even sitting at his feet at his last meeting. Every title you could give him he was so much more. I have been blessed to know Drummond & Charlotte since I was 5 years old. Drummond has more than paid the price to be walking with God and the Generals of Faith that he was writing about.There are not the words to tell you how I am feeling but I know that Charlotte will be fine because I know her faith and the kids as well. Nothing will ever be the same until we are all reunited again!! Then it will be Phenominal!!!

When I was a girl in 1972 Rev, Thom was preaching at Evangel Tabernacle my mother Alma Horton had been in and out of the hospital for over six months that year alone, she had even been to the Mayo Clinic, one thing that she had wrong with her was her legs one was three quarters shorter than the other one, not many people knew Mom had this problem, during the altar service Rev. Thom called Mom up to be prayed for she went he sat her down on the altar and had her take off her shoe he held out her legs you could see the difference. All he said was JESUS JESUS JESUS mom leg grew right before our eyes. When she went to the doctor they were amazed that all of her organs were in the right place. It was truly a miracle, he was truly annoited by God . What a wonderful time Rev. Thom must be having in heaven shouting the victory for all wonders of God!!

If tears could build a stairway
And heartache make a lane,
I'd walk the path to heaven
And bring you back again.

Our family chain is broken,
And nothing seems the same.

The chain will link again.
