Mike Bell

Executive Director


I am excited to join the Full Life Ahead team as of October 1, 2019. A 1974 graduate of the University of Alabama in Huntsville, I began my career as an actuary, working for several life insurance companies. In more recent years I have been in administrative and leadership roles. My hope is that the managerial and organizational skills, along with the business knowledge, I have acquired can be put to good use to help Full Life Ahead grow and thrive into the future.

My wife (Donna) and I have two grown children (Stacy and Sam) and a granddaughter (Lydia), who has me wrapped around her little finger. We live in Gardendale, AL. We are active members at Church of the Highlands in Fultondale and on the Dream Team. Our passion for helping others developed from volunteering with King’s Home at one of their girls homes in Warrior, AL. I feel blessed to be able to work full time now at an organization making such a positive difference in peoples’ lives.

I look forward to getting up and coming to the office each morning where I enjoy working with the staff, the Board members whom I have met, and the volunteers. I love the networking I have already begun with others in the non-profit world. Most of all, I am thankful the Lord opened up such a rewarding and gratifying opportunity for me at Full Life Ahead.
