Bill has been married to his wife Mary since 1974. Yes, that means they are "William & Mary". They have three children - Dan, Mike and Sara. Daniel is married to Mariska who made Bill and Mary grandparents in 2005 with the birth of Marco. Their second grandchild, Caitlyn, was born in 2007.
Bill grew up in Ohio. He was raised in a traditional church and received Christ as savior at age 22 during a time known as the "Charismatic Movement". Mary grew up in Delaware. Although not raised in church, she received Jesus as her Lord just prior to her marriage to Bill. As a former R.N., she now enjoys volunteering at the local hospital as well as at church.
His life journey has taken him to work in a steel mill, to military service with the U.S. Army and successful businessman. In 1981, a major shift came for Bill as he prepared educationally through Rhema Bible School and Berean College. In his ministry career Bill has served as a jail chaplain, served as Pastor 6 years in Ohio and has served the congregation at Jubilee Christian Center for over 20 years. He also serves as Presbyter of the Capital Va D.C. area for the Assemblies of God, giving oversight to 34 churches. Bill enjoys the opportunity he has serving as a "coach" to younger new church planters.
Bill enjoys time with his family and watching them fulfill God's plans for their lives. He likes to have fun (even in church) and he enjoys riding his Harley for pleasure and ministry. Bill likes to "cheer on" the Pittsburgh Steelers and the George Mason Patriots.
Auto mechanics is a hobby for Bill and he enjoys being involved in hard work - whether it be for missions, church or personal volunteerism. He has found that enduring relationships can be found when working together for the common good.
Lifelong learning is something Bill values. When he speaks, his appetite for knowledge of the Bible, historical and current events is very evident as he helps the listener connect a relationship with God and real life.
