Work History

For many years while serving Faith Missionary Church as pastor, I have taught middle and high school students in our kindergarten through 12th grade private Christian school. For these past 12 years I have taught ENGLISH, SOCIAL STUDIES, SCIENCE, MATH, and BIBLE full-time. Additionally, I have been responsible for the duties of principal or academy director. I am the owner and practitioner of Reflex Health Clinic.

As a minister from my youth I have had over 30+ years experience in teaching and public speaking, preparing sermon/lecture outlines with examples and personal applications where indicated. After obtaining a vast amount of training in the health professions I have been able to incorporate that knowledge into my classroom; especially in the Health, Human Anatomy, Human Physiology, and Science related subjects that I have taught over the last dozen years. My ministry and preaching has aided me in teaching Bible as a subject to my high school students.

I am especially honored to have the opportunity to teach in a well respected Tennessee State registered and recognized Career College in their Massage Therapy and Body Work program; an experience I enjoy and a memory I will hold very dear.

One of the greatest honors I have had is to have been blessed to establish Faith Missionary Academy and Bible Institute in August of 1999. We have been blessed to grow from a small school that opened with two or three students to one that normally runs over one hundred full-time students; with some as campus day students, Homeschool students and adult high school completion students. We have developed our programs from scratch, selecting courses and curriculum as well as creating all of our school forms and documents, and some of the curriculum that we use. While we remain a small school with humble facilities we have had the honor to graduate several students who have served our country abroad in the military, gone on to college, or who’ve become active and worthwhile citizens within business or the workforce. Additionally; I am pleased to operate Faith Missionary Health Therapies offering Myoskeletal/Spinal Alignment Therapies including: The Spinal Touch Technique, and the Dorn Spinal Method.
