Pastor Bill has been in ministry for over 25 years, serving as a Youth Pastor in Indiana, Florida, and Missouri. He has been blessed to serve with some amazing church leaders and watch teens and their families grow closer to Jesus and each other. Pastor Bill grew up in California as a Foster kid who was taken in by a wonderful family that first told him about Jesus. This family came with lots of brothers and sisters. His passion is for all to know Jesus and find healing for their brokenness. Pastor Bill’s own family enjoys ministering with him and are always there to help in leading camps, retreats, and Youth and Children’s activities. He has been married for over 30 years to Trish, has two young adult sons, and a daughter that is in high school. They are his pride and joy. As one who grew up without biological parents, he fully grasps the specialness of family.
Pastor Bill taught in public school, was a successful coach, and also worked with troubled teens in the school setting. He has interned many young adults who now lead churches in positions as Lead Pastor and Worship Pastor, and also businessmen who honor God in all they do. Pastor Bill’s giftings are in wisdom, exhortation, and shepherding. He has a great heart for the lost, finding freedom, and discipleship by living life together. He has been a close friend of Pastor Leonard for years and came on staff at Heartcry Chapel in January 2014. He is excited to be back in Florida and work together with the people at Heartcry to become stronger, more passionate families that will point people to Jesus.
