The son of a reverend, Pastor Tom Naumann was born in Minnesota, raised in Alaska, and spent some formative years in Wisconsin as his father served Lutheran congregations in those respective states. Pastor Naumann met his wife Ashley on a mission trip to Kenya in 2012. They have two children: Aurora (3) and Jedidiah (1). Pastor Naumann attended Immanuel Lutheran Seminary in Eau Claire, WI from 2014-2017 and upon graduation was called by Mt. Zion Lutheran Church in Madison Heights, MI.

Along with the vocations of husband, father, and pastor, Pastor Naumann greatly enjoys a number of outdoor hobbies including deer hunting, hiking, camping, and snowboarding. He has a passion for teaching and working with children and young people, but his favorite part of the ministry is one-on-one Bible study with individuals looking to become new church members.
