Tom Dykhuizen

Director of Media

Tom Dykhuizen is a fixture for anyone who has been around the Presbytery of Los Ranchos for some time. Whether it is making the media/communication element of a presbytery gathering go smoothly, or filming our congregations to create award winning videos, Tom is on the job.

Tom has been a pastor in this presbytery since 2001 serving at Emmanuel Presbyterian Church in Long Beach. This combination of pastoral skills and communication skills means he is not just well-versed in the ‘how’ of what he does, but also the ‘why.’
