Eight years later he was called to fill the position of Manager/Director of the program that led him to Christ, a position he held for 6 1/2 years, by then Chesapeake Conference President Bill May. Elder Joe Crews was the Amazing Facts radio speaker which began in 1965. Under Floyd's leadership Amazing Facts grew from eight radio stations to 53 stations. He was responsible for establishing the associate evangelist program that is still successful today and increased the number of Amazing Facts baptisms from 139 per year to 412 and the evangelistic crusades per year from 6 to 16.

The name was changed to Adventist Singles Ministry under his leadership. The officers were all volunteers while holding full time jobs. While he served the organization it grew from 13 chapters throughout the country to 34. He pioneered the first all-singles camp meeting in Lincoln, Nebraska in 1977.

In 1986 he was called by Bill May, then President of the Texas Conference of SDA's, to serve as General Manager and C.E.O. of Revelation Seminars in Keene, Texas. His wife served as secretary. The name was changed to Seminars Unlimited while he was there. During that time they moved from the basement of the Hour of Prophecy Building on Route 67 to Old Betsy Road in Keene.

During that time he established 123 new accounts with Christian bookstores, bookshops and health food stores in the Southwest marketplace in 16 months and delivered Review and Herald books to the stores including books by Ellen G. White.

 For three decades beginning in 1991 Floyd was self-employed as a wholesale distributor of inspirational framed art and sold it under the name GODLY Art from Godley, Texas (GODLY Art) out of his home. He and his wife produced and sold the product throughout the Southwest to many Christian book and gift stores, churches, hospitals and other retailers.

During that time he was employed by The Quiet Hour located in California for ten years as Southwestern Regional Representative and later served as General Field Account Executive for Remnant Publications in Michigan from May 2004 to December 2006.
