In 1974, due to a call into full-time Christian ministry, Jim Bramlett retired as a regular officer and Lt. Colonel in the U.S. Air Force after 20 years of distinguished military service. He was led to join Pat Robertson and the Christian Broadcasting Network where he headed and helped pioneer the national and later international network of more than 60 counseling centers. He later served as Vice President in corporate human resources. From 1991 to 2001 he was special assistant to the founder and president of Campus Crusade for Christ International, Dr. Bill Bright.
It was in 1971 that Jim says the Lord first began showing him that we are in the last days, prompting an immediate study and continuing interest in biblical prophecy, but he says it was as though the Lord began to "shout it" to him in 1993.
Jim has a B.A. degree from the University of Miami (Florida), an M.B.A. from the Ohio State University, and he is a graduate of the Industrial College of the Armed Forces and three other lengthy military professional and managment schools. He is married and has three grown sons.
