Pastor Bill loves to use creative learning experiences, humor, object lessons, good questions, and silly props to enhance preaching, and teaching. His desire is to share and translate the beliefs, principles, practices and posture of the historic Christian faith, to help equip people with a growing and relevant faith in Jesus for the 21st Century. He has benefitted from a Master of Divinity in Pastoral Ministry and Philosophical Theology from the Anderson University School of Theology and 35 years of full-time ministry experience to shape the biblical insights and understandings that he loves to bring to preaching, teaching, leading and counseling. Pastor Bill's passion is to lead people to follow Jesus - to live and love like him and make a positive (heavenly) difference in the community and world today. The two verses that inform his life , faith, and ministry are taken from the words of Jesus in John 10:10b - "I have come that they might have real and eternal life (MSG)," and the words of the Apostle Paul, "The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself in love. (Galatians 5:6b, NIV)" It is Pastor Bill's greatest desire to live out these verses with authenticity and integrity, and to encourage that same life in others in their unique ways.
