Stephenville, Texas (PressExposure) August 24, 2007 -- Mike Tummillo has been very busy since leaving his post as Marketing Director for the Stephenville Chamber of Commerce. After 5 successful years with that award-winning organization, even serving as Interim President, Mike was lured away to serve Pyramid HealthCare of Texas as that organization's Workplace Chaplain to minister to their 500 employees located in ten Texas facilities from Paris to Hillsboro, Baird to Grand Saline. Nearly 38,000 miles and 11 months later, he believes God gave him an idea.
"Workplace Chaplains are a growing trend throughout corporate America right now," he said. "It's estimated there are 4,000 nationwide but, by decade's end, there could be over 20,000...Companies are seeing the benefit of catering not only to a person's physical and monetary needs on the job, but their spiritual needs as well. It's something I longed to do ever since meeting the Chaplain for Gerber Baby Foods 15 years ago in Arlington."
After recently speaking to the 150-member San Antonio Christian Business Chamber of Commerce, Tummillo decided to launch a similar organization in his own hometown of Stephenville. "We had so much success locally with something I called the "Brown Bag Bible Study" a couple of years back, after witnessing the San Antonio group, I saw them as being not so much a business organization - like a Chamber - but a Christian fellowship. The atmosphere was electric there. I want to see that here among our own labor force."
Tummillo will kick off the organization in true marketing form by testing the market. "If there's an interest-level, we're moving forward!"
