Tom and Femke de Wal launched Frontrunners in 2016. Tom came to a living faith in Christ via a Youth Alpha Course, when he was 16-17, and met his wife at church. Femke went to the church after she gave her life to Jesus when she was 17. Femke was healed in a very special way when she was young and has always experienced the hand of God on her life. Tom and Femke worked as youth, teen, worship and Bible School leaders at the church for a number of years. Femke spent a year at a Bible School in England before they got married in 2015. Tom got his Bachelor’s degree in Integral Safety & Security Management and spent another two years studying Biblical Theology after he had founded Frontrunners. Tom and Femke have three children and live in Noord-Brabant.
Tom operates powerfully in the teaching & prophetic gifts, which allows him to always bring a word that is strongly supported and confirmed with signs and wonders. Many people have found healing, freedom and breakthrough through Frontrunners’ meetings that they attended. Femke operates powerfully in prophecy and worship. If you read Toms books or listen to his messages, you will quickly notice that radicality, faith and the power of the Holy Spirit mark his teaching.
Tom is not afraid to be on the cutting edge of faith. This marks his life and therefore his teaching. What's more, this often makes the most impact on the lives of the people that hear his teaching. Tom’s favorite Bible text is Mark 9:23: “Anything is possible for one who believes”
