Another APX Alumnus Ordained

As you may recall, APX alumnus drummer Bob Flaherty was ordained as a pastor by the Christian and Missionary Alliance Church earlier this month. Not to be outdone, APX alumnus guitarist Tom Milnes, was also ordained this month — by Calvary Chapel.
Of course, there was no competition between Tom and Bob. Tom graduated from Calvary Chapel School of Ministry last year. He has served as pastor for Ellport Community Church in Ellwood City PA for over a year now, and he's been youth pastor there for eight years.
APX bassist Keith Haynie and his family attend Tom's church and his daughters have been active in Tom's youth group for quite some time.
Don't expect Tom to be one of those namby-pamby pastors who is afraid to speak out. Why, just today he texted us and said, "I am witnessing sacrilege! Next to where I am painting, an exercise group is working out to Madonna's version of 'American Pie'! Ahhh!"
