Jim is a retired professional that spent his career in the
aerospace industry with Douglas/McDonnell Douglas/Rockwell/Northrop/Boeing. He jump started his career with a degree in
Personnel Management from the University of Illinois and 4 years in the
military in Germany as an officer. In
the early years of my career he also obtained a Master’s Degree in Business
Administration from the University of California, Long Beach.
He started coming to Cypress Church in 1984 but didn’t become
a member until years later.
In 2006 he was approached to see if he was interested in a project at the
church. When interviewed the description
of the project sounded like a job which he accepted pending the interview with
the Elders. When interviewed by the Elders they asked if he would be willing to
work 5 years, he answered that he was
retired and would commit to only one year.
That was 12 years ago and still counting.
He has been extremely blessed
in his working career. He has had many
wonderful experiences working in the aerospace industry including working at
Cape Canaveral witnessing and supporting space shuttle activity. Here at church Jim has witnessed God’s activity
in seeing how He provides.
