He has ministered in many churches throughout the United States and the country of Haiti. He is a passionate and insightful teacher, who delivers the Word of God with ease and simplicity. God has used Tommy to help rejuvenate those who have been turned off or burned out due to religious tradition, those who have strayed in their walk with God, as well as Christians who desire to hear God’s Word delivered in everyday terms. Tommy, along with his wife Lynette, have served tirelessly in church and youth ministry for many years. His past assignments include those of Associate Elder and Youth pastor at Covenant Community Fellowship Church, W-S, NC.

In November of 2008, God placed a desire in Tommy and Lynette Roberts to move to Iowa City to assist the founding Pastors with their church planting efforts. Out of this move and the ministry transition that came in 2010, Pastor Tommy was installed as the Senior Pastor of LifePointe Christian Faith Center on July 25th, 2010.
Lynette Roberts was born in Washington, D.C. and raised in the Atlanta metropolitan area. At the age of 16, she was introduced to Jesus and began to read her Bible on a consistent basis and formed an intimate relationship with God and His son Jesus our Christ. Never joining a church, her growth was small, but her confidence in God never waned. She prayed during the hard times and always believed God was going to turn it all around. Lynette attended her first year of college at Howard University in Washington, D.C., became homesick and decided to attend her next two years at Georgia State University. After being home that first summer of college, she met Tommy Roberts and fell completely in love. After 8 years of marriage, Tommy and Lynette gave their lives to the Lord and became one in the Spirit as well as on paper. The journey of ministry began, and they still walk out the story of their ministry to the world to this day. Her passion for God never stops and her love grows each day. She is a teacher and a lover of people. She supports her husband as the Executive Pastor of LifePointe as they both raise up disciples for Jesus Christ and watch as LifePointe becomes the center for change for everyone that wants and needs change in their lives. She counts it an honor to serve and love the people of God until she sees her Lord and Savior face to face.
