Since 1990, Jim was actively involved with the First Baptist Church of Belton. He taught various Bible Study Classes and for two years he taught at Heartland Christian School provided by the church. While he retired from Glaxo SmithKline in 1999, his true passion was teaching. He later went on to teach at Longview Community College part-time until December 2014 when he fully retired.
