John Charles Bell was raised in Graysville, Alabama and met his wife Jan at Vanderbilt University in Calculus class. They were married in 1977, and together they have raised 5 beautiful and accomplished children here in the beautiful state of Alabama.
While students at Vanderbilt University, Mr. Bell and Jan established the first community cannery in Nashville, Tennessee, which still operates to this day. Later, while Mr. Bell was in Seminary at Vanderbilt, he and Jan founded Confrontation Point, a ministry focused on service and cross-cultural exchange, working with medically disabled, mentally challenged, and disadvantaged youth from around the globe, taking them on outdoor adventures and doing community service projects. He also scouted or led overseas mission teams to Haiti, Costa Rica, Jamaica, and the Dominican Republic.
Mr. Bell has been practicing law since 1991. He served in the federal sector at the United States Attorney's Office for the Northern District of Alabama from 1992-2013. In 2014, Mr. Bell created a unique, customer service-based law firm in Homewood, Alabama, that focuses on immigration law, with additional practice areas such as criminal, traffic, and estate matters. Additionally, Mr. Bell is an adjunct professor at Cumberland School of Law, teaching Immigration Law.
Over 45 years, Mr. Bell has coached boys and girls in baseball, basketball, and volleyball. He also taught rock climbing. But to him, even more important than athletic fundamentals were the life lessons his students kept with them into adulthood-- the value of teamwork, and that no matter the circumstances, you never give up.
