With over 30 years of pastoral ministry and over 20 years working with pastors at Biola and in his denomination, Bill knew there was more to pastoral ministry than strategic planning. Bill came to Soul Shepherding realizing that a pastor’s soul is often neglected, worn out, and discouraged. His years with Soul Shepherding have revitalized his spirit and refocused his ministry. It has been Bill’s joy to come alongside pastors to help them care for their own life with Jesus, become attuned to the voice of the Holy Spirit, and bask in the love of God the Father.
Bill’s hobbies include scuba diving and playing hockey. Bill and his wife Kimberly live in Fountain Valley, CA, and have three children.
