Bill was born on July 26, 1966, and grew up in Webster, New York. He graduated from R. L. Thomas High School in 1984 and then began a career in the US Air Force which was to last for over 22 years. He came to know the Lord Jesus as his Saviour on April 15, 1992, while stationed in England. He was 25 years old.
In July of 1994, after nearly drowning while deployed to the country of Turkey, the Lord called him to preach. In June 2000, he received an earned Bachelor of Arts in Pastoral Ministry through Bethany Bible College in Dothan, AL. He retired from the military in November 2006 with the intention of going to Japan as a missionary. The Lord closed the doors for that ministry and in August 2008 directed him back to Maranatha Baptist Church; his home church in New York.
He is now on staff at our church assisting the Pastor. He is in charge of the church’s soul winning department and is involved in many facets of the church’s ministry.
