Jim Hogsett is a native of Henderson, North Carolina and was raised by a Christian grandmother. It was because of her faith and the way she lived out her faith that Jim came to know Jesus Christ and, as a young teenager, accepted Jesus as Lord and Savior.

His work career started at the age of twelve when he was the youngest disc jockey in American radio broadcasting. While in high school and college, he worked in sales and production at broadcasting stations in Henderson and Greenville, North Carolina.

Jim is a graduate of East Carolina University where he earned his B. S. Degree in Business Administration. He also completed graduate studies at North Carolina State University and North Carolina A & T State University. Based on his academic achievements at both schools, he received his Master's Degree with honors in industrial technology education.

From l967 until 1971, he served as Coordinator of Trade and Industrial Education in Granville County Schools. In 1971, the Oxford Jaycees named him Outstanding Educator of the Year in Granville County. He was also a finalist for the Terry Sanford Award for innovative ideas in public education.

Jim served as a Corporate Director of Training for Burlington Industries for 32 years with assignments in Burlington Madison Yarn Company, BI Transportation, Lees Carpets, and Burlington Corporate Offices.

To enable him to stay in touch with worker problems and challenges, he decided to become an employee again and served as a Certified Nursing Assistant at an assisted living facility for 5 ½ years. In recognition of consistent compassionate professional care giving to the elderly at this facility, he received the Pacesetter Award.

In 2001, he created Worker Ministries, an organization dedicated to promoting the Christian Work Ethic. The ministry focuses on helping young people find their calling and assisting employees/managers who are experiencing difficulty in their workplace.

In addition, he takes his classroom to the streets of New York City, Washington DC, and Memphis Tennessee annually and conducts Operation Uplift. During this time, he provides specific instructions to the homeless on how to unlock their chains and escape their delimma through working to earn their living in accordance with God’s will for their life.

He is the author of the book A Worker Need Not Be Ashamed, It is available through 25,000 major book stores. In addition, it is featured on well known web sites including www.workerministries.com

Jim is also a writer for Guideposts magazine. His first article appeared in the May 2004 edition and is called “A New Direction”. It focused on ministering to his dad and how this eventually led him to working in an assistant living facility.
