Bill came to know the Lord as his Savior when he was in his early 20’s. Shortly after visiting Harvest, Bill and his wife Julie started in 2002 serving in Children Ministries, such as teaching Sunday school, leading in Awana, etc… Bill and Julie have three grown children and two grandchildren.
Where did you grow up & what are some of your favorite things about those years?
Bill: I grew up in Aurora … spent alot of time playing sports and enjoyed playing alot with my neighborhood friends.
What is your “go to” for relaxing? Any music or hobbies you enjoy?
Bill: I will typically read a good book or watch a good movie to relax. As for music, I am more of a news radio guy – I’m not sure who Mandisa is, but I know what Vladamir Putin’s been up to. And if I had a hobby, it would be watching Julie scrapbook.
How did you propose to Julie?
Bill: Neither of us are “grand gesture” people, so it was a simple proposal on bended knee. Thirty years later, I’m STILL happy to report she said yes!
Describe your time with the Lord, any good books, and how you feel about your decision to switch careers?
Bill: I spend time with Jesus in the morning – praying through my prayer journal and reading the Word. I was blessed to read Tozer Speaks – a collection of the teachings of A.W. Tozer. As far as my career switch, I just love working with God’s children. I’m blessed to do what I love most as a career and I pray God will use me every day until I draw my last breath!
