Tom Pagon (born c. 1954 as Tomás Pagán in New York City) is a Christian writer, pastor, and former rock singer for the band Steppenwolf. He is the former pastor of The Carpenter’s Christian Fellowship, a young nondenominational church in Thousand Oaks, California, where he lives with his wife and daughter. Pagon is a graduate of the Cottonwood School of Ministry in Los Alamitos, California. Prior to that, he attended The Church On The Way under Pastor Jack W. Hayford, where he and his wife taught Sunday school.

Music career

When bassist Nick St. Nicholas and keyboardist Goldy McJohn reformed Steppenwolf in 1977 with guitarist Kent Henry, Pagon was hired to replace lead singer John Kay. Pagon's vocal style brought more of a R&B delivery to the band, as opposed to Kay's more bluesy sound. An album was reputed to have been recorded for release in October of that year, but it never surfaced.

Writing career

After leaving Steppenwolf, Pagon worked as a writer for "Billboard Magazine". In 2003, Xulon Press published Pagon's book, "40 Lessons I Should Have Learned in Sunday School".
