Brother Bill was born and raised in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He graduated from Ozark Christian College with a Bachelor's degree in Sacred Literature and Biblical Theology. He has served with New Testament Christian Church since September of 1974.
Bill and Connie were married on August 7, 1970 in Ames, Iowa, Connie's hometown. They have four grown children, Jason, Jon, James and Jennifer.
Prior to accepting the call to New Testament Christian Church, Brother Bill served in ministries in Sapulpa, Oklahoma, and Colorado Springs, Colorado.
Brother Bill is responsible for the majority of the preaching at New Testament Christian Church in addition to providing oversight to the staff and several key ministry teams. When asked what he likes best about New Testament Christian Church, Bill answered, "When Connie and I came to New Testament Christian Church we saw some people who were in love with Jesus and had a burning desire to see this town won to Christ. That love and passion has been demonstrated many times in many ways over the years. This has been the thing that has kept us here serving and sharing with this church! New Testament Christian Church has become our family."
Now that Brother Bill is a grandpa, he enjoys every opportunity that he has to spend time with his grandchildren. He also enjoys ballgames and a rare quiet night at home.
