He and his wife, Jessie, just celebrated 20 years of marriage. Jessie home schools their 3 beautiful children.

He received his Medical Degree from the University of Illinois and then completed his residency at Ventura County Medical Center in Ventura, California.
It would take the NHSC Scholar Program, CMDA, and the hand of God to move the Thomas’s from the beautiful California coast to the majestic Appalachian Mountains. It was in the small town of Jellico, Tennessee that God started to impress upon Geogy the plight of the rural poor and the disparities of healthcare system in America. Sixteen years later, the Thomas’ are still in rural TN, living out Isaiah 58, as they minister to the poor and preach the Gospel.
