Meet our Board of Directors

Dr. Thomas Drzemala

Dr. Thomas Drzemala, DC is very passionate about having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and those who you value the most in your life. He believes there is only One who can save humanity and that is Jesus Christ, the son of God. His wife, Violeta, was born in the Philippines and just retired from Kaiser Hospital where she served more than 20 yrs as an RN on the cardiology unit at Kaiser on Morse Avenue. Thomas and Violeta have 4 grown sons: Benjamin, Keith, AJ and Timothy. 3 of their sons are married and have wonderful families. Timothy is single but he gave his life to Jesus Christ and loves the Lord. They reside in Folsom. Thomas is still employed at Back to Health Chiropractic in Granite Bay, where he has been a Chiropractor for years. He started his career in Chiropractic in 1984 at the National University of Health Sciences in Illinois outside of Chicago. He has a personal testimony of the Love of Jesus Christ that will capture your heart in many ways. He has had many prayers answered in his life, but one that he will never forget. He was a prisoner in a Muslim Prison while in the military about to be gunned down by a firing squad when he called out for Jesus to save him.

Thomas experienced a real miracle that day and has been passionate about knowing Jesus Christ since then and sharing Jesus Christ with others. He has served in ministry in different capacities over the past 40 yrs. including as a board member with the Fellowship Chamber and at his local church for years, an evangelist and pastor at Christian Family Tabernacle Church. He was ordained as a Pastor at Christian Family Tabernacle Church while attending the Fellowship Chamber for several years. Thomas is now excited to take a more active part as one of the Board Members of the Fellowship Chamber as we develop the vision that God has given to us.
