Jim Ramirez

I was born in Detroit, Michigan and I was 7th  of 9 children. I came to Christ in College.  After graduating in 1982, I moved to Southern California where I accepted a job with Hughes Aircraft Company. I attended Acacia Baptist Church where I fell in love with the Pastor’s daughter. Her name was Rita who I later made my wife in 1986.  In 1989 God blessed us with my one and only son, who we named Roman. We moved to Fort Collins, Colorado in 1997 where I began a new career in Information Technology (IT) and where our family joined LifePointe Church.

Personal Vision:  
My purpose for the rest of my life is to be a servant of God.

I strive to grow to be more like Christ in all aspects of my life knowing full well I will never reach the complete goal. I serve God because of what he has done for me on the cross.

God’s love has taught me to love others. I am glad God has brought me to LifePointe Church. I will serve him here using all of the gifts he has graciously given me, including my humor.

B.S. in Electrical and Computer Engineering, Wayne State University. Project Management Professional (PMP) from Project Management Institute.
