Rich Thomson
Rich Thomson received his Master of Divinity degree from Talbot Theological Seminary. For his first five years of pastoral ministry, Rich served as an associate pastor in West Virginia and as a pastor in California, where he experienced a deep depression. As he recovered, the Lord enabled him to understand from the Scripture alone a Biblical Framework of the inner workings of the human heart which could diagnose and treat the root cause of not only his own depression, but also of nearly all the human mental disorders.

For the next 23 years, he studied, thought through, and taught this Biblical Framework and began to write the first edition of the textbook/reference work The Heart of Man and the Mental Disorders – How the Word of God is Sufficient, the 1300 page Second Expanded Edition, which is currently being used in the Biblical Counseling minor and major programs at the College of Biblical Studies – Houston and previously at the Carolina College of Biblical Studies in Fayetteville, North Carolina. Because of its biblical soundness, depth, and comprehensiveness, this work is also finding favor in other Christian colleges, churches, and organizations throughout the nation.

He and his wife Bonnie have three committed Christian children, who with their spouses are also raising their children for the Lord. They have been married 51 years and have 13 grandchildren and one great-grandchild. They live near their families in Parker, Colorado.

Nate Thomson
Nate attended Louisiana State University (LSU) and received a Bachelor of Science in Management Information Systems.

While attending LSU, Nate began training for the 1996 Olympics in swimming. In 1995, he finished the year in a promising position to make the team. In January of 1996, about 1 month prior to the Olympic Trials, he contracted mononucleosis. Through the support of his family and his future wife, he worked through accepting God's will. He learned that God can be trusted even when lifelong dreams are shattered.

Nate currently lives in Denver with his family where he is a pastor at Southside Bible Church. He also works for a background screening company in their IT department.

Nate and his incredible wife, Kim, enjoy time with their 5 kids, taking trips around the country and the world.
