As the senior leaders of Vision Church @ Christian International, Pastors Tom and Jane Hamon have given their lives to investing in people and building the kingdom. Pastors Tom and Jane met, fell in love, and became dedicated Dallas Cowboys fans while attending Christ for the Nations Institute in Dallas, Texas. In 1984, they moved their young family to the sparkling shores of Santa Rosa Beach, Florida and never looked back. They established Christian International Family Church, which is now called Vision Church @ Christian International, in their mid-twenties with three kids in tow and started a great adventure!
In their more than 30 years of ministry together, they have built a thriving local church, traveled to more than 50 nations, and helped to lead Christian International Ministries, founded by Pastor Tom’s father Dr. Bill Hamon. They have each been awarded honorary Doctorate of Divinity degrees from Christian International School of Theology, and both are featured instructors at Bible colleges and institutes around the world.
