Follow Me as I Follow Christ
Hi, I’m Tom Neary, the pastor behind Pastor Unlikely. I am passionate
about building impactful and powerful disciples. That means you. Are you struggling, doubting, or feeling like you cannot grow in Christ? Do you just want more Jesus? Great, you have come to the right place!
Pastor Unlikely exists so that you can have a simple, joyful and abundant life in Christ. Do you believe you can have a fulfilling life as an on fire believer in Christ? Do you want one?
The Mission of Pastor Unlikely
These are happy pictures. My family is truly wonderful now. The joy and peace in my life amaze me every day. But it was not always this way. I was not a believer for much of my adult life. Sin almost destroyed me. I was exhausted from striving and struggling with life. I didn’t believe a great life in Christ was possible for a regular guy like me. I thought that was only for the Biblical heroes and special people of the faith like Billy Graham.
It was only through 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. I have been determined to follow Him to the utmost ever since.
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 takes a willingness to face your fears, failings, and strongholds. It also took lots of tears and setbacks. Powerful forces come against us when we seek to live a sold-out life for Christ. But I promise you it is both possible for you and worth it. Do you trust God to deliver on His promises?
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 you of the awesome life that Jesus promises you.

Jesus has taught me so much during that time. I want to share it with you.
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.
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.
