About The Founder
After a 17-year career working at Fortune 500 companies, FaithWorks USA, Inc. founder John Tomlin knows the stresses many working professionals face and the difficulties presented in workplaces that can challenge a person’s faith. A licensed professional Civil Engineer called mid-career into ministry, John left pastoring churches to go back into the realm of working professionals to minister to a sector of people who often lack pastoral support. John’s scriptural model is the Apostle Matthew, the tax collector who, after Jesus calls him to follow, immediately throws a banquet to introduce Jesus to his tax-collector friends and coworkers (Matthew 9:9-13). John’s ministerial role model is John Wesley, who preached on street corners, outside mines, and in fields to the working classes who did not regularly attend church. John earned his degree in Mining and Minerals Engineering from Virginia Tech and his Master of Divinity from Candler School of Theology at Emory University.
