Tuobodom is the district capital of the Techiman North District in the Brong-Ahafo region. It is located on the Techiman-Kintampo main road, about six (6) kilometers from Techiman township. In the 2010 Population and Houses Census, Tuobodom recorded a population of about 12, 040 inhabitants. It was made a district capital in June 2012.
The Church at Tuobodom was an outstation of the then St. Paul's parish in Techiman before they got a resident priest in the year 2009. The Tuobodom Catholic Church was established between the years 1935 and 1936. The Founding Fathers were Op. Peter Kwaku Donyina, Peter Kwaku Anane and Joseph Kofi Nsia (all of blessed memory) who brought the church from Akuapem. For four (4) years, they gathered and worshiped in the house of one Op. Yaw Oduro. The church was later relocated to the now Cocoa Marketing Board (C.M.B) warehouse. In 1966, the foundation stone of a new chapel was laid by His Lordship Bishop Joseph Amihene Essua. In the year 1971, the Roman Catholic Mission School was re-instituted and it is now at the Junior High level.
When the Diocese of Techiman was created in 2008, Tuobodom became a church with Rev. Fr. Paul Osei Fosu, who was the then Financial Administrator of the Diocese, as its first resident priest in 2009. He was succeeded by Very Rev. Fr. George Boachie Nyarko, also the Financial Administrator of the diocese. Through the instrumentality of Fr. George, the Queen of Peace Church was created. In 2017, Adutwie and Saah, which were formerly under Offuman, came under Tuobodom. Other Priests who have worked at Tuobodom are the late Very Rev. Fr. Paul Miki Gyamfi (2014-2016), Rev. Fr. Pius Frimpong (2016-2017) and Very Rev. Fr. Paul Ameyaw (2017 to date).
