Tom Randolph - Founder and Facilitator of BibleThinkTank.com Men's Mentoring Ministry
Ministry Objective – To mentor Men and Boys to become One with Jesus as He is One with our Heavenly Father as Jesus prayed in John 17.
Experience - I bounced a around from job to job (Retail Sales Clerk at J.C. Penney's, Milk Man for Borden's, Child Care Worker at Orange County Juvenile Detention Center, Rental Rep for Budget Rent-a-Car and more) while putting myself through college part time.
After graduating from college, I was hired by Rollins Protective Services selling Security Alarm Systems. I joined a weekly networking club called TIP's (Trade-Ideas-Promotion-Source) at this time for the purpose of exchanging sales leads with those who participated. One of the members of this club was a man named Lou Fortner. He convinced me to come over and work for Middleton Pest Control in Orlando in 1984. This is when I discovered my career niche was in the Pest Control Industry. I don't believe I would have found my career niche if I had not experimented with the job market. Does this make sense? My love for Science and the Florida environment was a perfect fit for this job. Chuck Steinmetz, the owner of Middleton Pest Control which was later sold to Massey Services, hired me as a Sales Technician.
I went on to work for Rick and Roger Lewis (brothers who own Lewis-Cobb Pest Control) for a better opportunity in sales and marketing.
From there, I went to work for Harvey Massey (owner of Massey Services) and helped start their GreenUp Lawn Care division.
All of these company changes were made to enhance my career in the job market. These company changes helped me better understand how other companies approach pest elimination and prevention in a safe and effective manner. Two or more heads are always better than one, don't you agree?
Please note all of these Pest Control companies are local and not large National companies like Orkin and Terminex. My wide range of experience with large companies, small companies, local companies and national companies taught me the following principle.
"The larger the organization - the poorer the service".
I believe the Scientific Theory should add this principle to the law of physics relative to what they call the paranormal. Oh, I forgot...it can't be true if the five senses are involved. My bad!
Here is another way of explaining this principle...the more moving parts the less efficient and productive a system of principles will become. This is why I believe in the acronym KISS. It means "Keep It Simple Stupid". This principle applies to all organizations whether it be a church, private company or government office. Any one of my former bosses (Chuck Steinmetz, Roger Lewis or Harvey Massey) will vouch for my extraordinary sales and customer service skills if you should contact them. I believe I was taught and trained by the very best in the Pest Control Industry.
I started my own Pest Control and Lawn Care Company in the summer of 1990. I have been self-employed ever since. I was the former owner and founder of MASTERGREEN PEST CONTROL AND LAWN CARE located in Winter Park, Florida...a full service Pest Control Company. I started my company from scratch starting with one account (a married couple near Baldwin Park) and built it to over 5000 active ongoing customers and all within a ten year window. That is the size of Megachurch, is it not? I had 25 full time employees, ran 18 trucks and became one of the largest Pest Control Companies in Central Florida. I was a former Regional Director for the Florida Pest Management Association. I sold MASTERGREEN in October of 2002. I paid off all my debts and put a sizable amount of money in the bank for the first time in my career. Now I understand why the Bible teaches it is important to be debt free. I am no longer a slave to any lender. Now I know what it is to be free in Christ Jesus. I take no credit for these awesome accomplishments. It would not be awesome if Jesus did not help me carry the load. To God be the Glory!
I started NoMoPest.com Pest Control Services (see google reviews) with the intention of staying small and debt free to insure quality service with strong financial integrity. I sold my company in December 2016 to start BibleThinkTank.com Men's Mentoring Ministry in Oviedo, FL. As a result of my experience, I learned the importance of staying small because it is much easier to manage and much more efficient in insuring financial integrity and intimacy between those we work with and those we serve.
This principle applies to church organizations as well. MEGA churches are a man made boondoggle and not in line with what is taught in Scripture. Bigger is not Better if Quality is our main concern. Customer Service has always been my number one priority when serving those who utilize my services. My Company Slogan was, "We have your PEST interest in mind". It was based on a scripture found in Philippians 2:3-4. It says, "Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit and with humility consider the interest of others as important as our own." This has always been my motto on how I treat all people regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, creed, culture, class, degree of education, intellect, personality, politics, religious views and the like. It is also the major reason that God blessed my company so much. Jesus, my Supreme Authority, knows I have my priorities in the right order. My works are direct evidence of His blessings. God has taught me that actions always speaks louder than words.
The political left thinks I am a racist because I voted for Donald Trump. I think a racist is the worse scum bag on our planet. You call me a racist and I will take you behind the woodshed and settle things the old fashion way! I have quite a reputation here in Central Florida as a youth in confronting bullies for their racist mindset towards those they deem inferior to themselves. Do you know why bullying is out of control? It's because we do not confront them for their offensive behavior anymore. In other words, men in the church have been emasculated by the demonic spirit of feminism and progressive liberalism. This is confirmed in Point Three and Seven of my Thesis posted on this website.
Like King David, I have never been afraid to confront the Goliath's in the world. The liberal elites have this same type of bullying mindset towards those who believe in "One Nation Under God".
Isn't it interesting how Liberal elites conveniently exclude God from their political thinking and conversations. Nothing new here. This is why the liberal elites have endorsed the Theory of Evolution as the only possible way we could have come into existence as a human race. To them, the possibility of a Creator of the Universe is a figment of our imagination. Only fools believe in God, right?
The Theory of Evolution is the biggest lie ever told mankind. Climate Change is the second biggest lie manufactured by the Liberal Elites to give them an excuse for the need to raise our taxes to the point where they control 100% of our currency. It will be at this point they will replace capitalism with socialism as our form of government. They do this because they are POWER AND CONTROL FREAKS. Have you ever been around a "power and control freak"? Both of my former wives (very devout church goers) have this same prejudicial mindset. All bullies have this mindset. They want us to consider them to be God instead of the God who authored the Holy Bible and created the Universe. As you know, Hillary Clinton (a devout "Holier Than Thou" Methodist) thinks we are a "basket of deplorable's". If that is not a racist statement, I don't know what is. It's time we confront these bullies and let them know we will no longer let them use their fear tactics to intimidate us in to their way of thinking. No one likes a bully so let's call them out for what they are.
By now I hope you have an idea of how vast my field of experience has been. This broad experience has enabled me to see the big picture. In other words, I can clearly see how everything is so intricately and intelligently networked together. Einstein came to the same conclusion with his theory of relativity.
Education – I graduated with a Bachelors of Arts & Sciences degree in General Studies from the University of Central Florida in April 1983. I minored in four colleges; Business Administration, Organizational Communication, Psychology and Russian History. I served as the Senator for the College of General Studies in Student Government and as the VA G.I. Bill representative (a paid position) for students during my tenure at UCF. I attended Southwest Baptist Theological Seminary in 1983. I also have an imaginary Doctorate's degree in the School of Hard Knocks if you know what I mean. I graduated from Edgewater High School in Orlando, FL in 1970. I was born and raised in Central Florida. Yes, I am a true native Floridian. The fact that I am a Pre-Disney resident makes me prehistoric (LOL) here in Orlando. Mickey Mouse and Shaquille O'Neal put Orlando on the map. I liked Orlando best before Disney got here. Too many people have what I call the "Mickey Mouse Syndrome". They pretend to be somebody they are not because Disney is all about fantasy rather than reality.
Other Skills/Information – I am an excellent orator and writer who is proficient in the use of Microsoft Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Quickbooks and other computer programs and skills. As you can see, I created, wrote and designed my own website (BibleThinkTank.com) using GoDaddy software. I consider myself to be an expert in all aspects of communications. I know what it takes to manage a company in terms of healthy growth while maintaining a high profit margin. I know most of our industry suppliers (vendors) and know how to negotiate bottom line in pricing (The Art of the Deal) when purchasing pest control products and equipment. I have good leadership skills and have trained many employees in the past to have successful careers in the Pest Control Industry. I believe I have a good reputation with my former customers, employees and all of my peers in the industry. God gave me a large measure of faith to accomplish great things for His glory. No challenge is too great with God’s helping hand.
Charitable Organizations – I was formerly active in the Orlando Jaycees, Church Mission Trips, Church Choirs and First Step Mentoring Ministry (now defunct) for fatherless Afro-American boys. Please see photo of the boys I mentored. I am a firm believer in being involved in the community by giving back my time, talents and treasures for the purpose of making our community a better place to live.
Military Experience – U.S. Navy from 1971 to 1975. I was trained in communications as a Radioman. I was issued a Top Secret Crypto security clearance after a very expensive and exhaustive background check by the FBI in order to work with the Top Brass in the Navy. Most of my tour of duty was working for the Chief of Naval Personnel who was Admiral David H. Bagley in Washington DC. I ended my tour of duty on the Flagship of the North Atlantic Fleet the "USS Mount Whitney". I obtained E-4 rank and was honorably discharged in June 1975. I am considered a Vietnam Vet. The GI Bill paid for my college education.
