Reaching Children for Christ!


Thomas Waldecker Tom Waldecker, our long-time CMI worker, chief writer, conference speaker, avid supporter and true friend passed away in September 2017.  Tom continued to work at CMI part-time until he was 88 (two years ago). Tom is now in Glory.

Children's Ministry International benefited from Tom Waldecker's three decades of unselfish service to this small Ministry. Tom's indelible Christ-like influence and legacy will continue to be seen as CMI's materials are translated and distributed around the world.

Before coming to CMI in GA, Tom was a loving and successful pastor at several PCA and RPC(ES) churches in the Midwest with his first wife, Lil.  His Reformed, theological insight to CMI's material is clearly evident.

Tom continued working part-time at CMI through his late 80's. He was always a welcome sight at our offices in Tucker working on whatever task needing his special attention.  He will be truly missed by his many friends.

Tom is survived by his dear wife, Judy Waldecker of Snellville, GA and his many, many children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Tom's first wife, Lil, also worked for CMI and died in the early 1990's.
