Follow Me as I Follow Christ
Hi, I’m Tom Neary, the pastor behind Pastor Unlikely.
The Mission of Pastor Unlikely
Do you want a better Christian life? Do you want to know Jesus better?
I can help!
No matter where you are in life, I have been there. I want to use what God taught me during those years to help you grow closer to Jesus.
These are happy pictures above. My family is truly wonderful now. The joy and peace in my life amaze me every day. But it was not always this way. My life was once a total mess. Sin almost destroyed me. I was exhausted from striving and struggling with life.
It was only the miraculous power of Jesus that I was saved.
Jesus changed everything. Nothing else could set me free. Trust me, I tried everything else first. It was only when I met Jesus that He did wondrous things.
So are you searching?
Are you living a life that is not satisfying and wonder if there is something more?
Do you know that things are not what they should be?
Come, sit, and stay for a while.
I understand what you are going through. I was there and would love to share what helped me out of those years. The whole world can make sense for the first time.
Fighting for Your Joy
I didn’t go from totally lost to living a joyful Christian life in a moment. It took years of research, Bible study, and discipleship. It also took lots of tears and setbacks. Powerful forces come against us when we seek live a sold out life for Christ. God prepared me for sifting through all of the doctrines, arguments, and gimmicks that first kept me from Jesus and try to pull me off of the path to a mature life in Him.
The greatest enemy of the church is not persecution but deception.
It is those who seek to rob us of the awesome life that Jesus promises us. Pastor Unlikely exists to pass on what I learned in the process. I write so that you can have a simple, joyful and abundant life in Christ. For more read Why am I NOT Growing in Christ? A Hard Hitting Answer and Why was David Chosen to Be King?

I am a lawyer, a pastor and someone forever grateful to Jesus. I love studying the Bible and telling people about Jesus. I am a beggar telling other beggars where to find bread.
I would love to help you know Jesus or know Him better.
Becoming a born again Christian is certainly not a unique experience. It was certainly a shocking development in my life, though.
No one saw it coming including me.
Jesus has taught me so much in my time following Him since then. I hope that I can share some of it with you.
Up until the moment of conversion, the idea of my becoming a Christian much less a pastor was just so …unlikely. Thus, the name of this blog.
