Pastor Douglass Thompson's discipline, integrity and commitment to excellence made him an ideal servant to lead the Genesis ministries in 1996. His willingness to follow the will of God and teach according to sound Biblical principles have provided a safe haven for ministers and lay members to follow his unwavering leadership.
The foundation of his message centers on being both hearers and doers of the Word. Pastor Thompson is a gifted teacher with more than 30 years of ministerial service. His Bible class lessons are thorough and insightful in guiding believers in Biblical remedies to afflictions, emotional brokenness and spiritual hindrances. Although Pastor Thompson has been married for more than 30 years, the Spirit of the Lord has given him a unique lecture series for singles to follow, if they desire marriage, titled the "Genesis Model" for relationship building.
With First Lady Jessie Thompson by his side, the Lord has given Pastor Thompson the wisdom to counsel with people from all walks of life and to help change the lives of many. He and his wife exemplify a marriage ordained by God. They have raised four beautiful daughters and are lovingly nurturing a grandson.
In addition to Pastor Thompson's labor in the Kingdom of God, he has also worked for more than 21 years in the Food and Aerospace Industries, managing multi-million dollar projects. He holds a Bachelor of Arts in Pastoral Studies from Aenon Bible College; a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Southern California; and a Master of Business Administration from the University of Tennessee.
