Bill has been attending West Haven since about 2000. He has been working with AWANA Clubs since 1989. His wife Donna, daughters Sarah and Rebekah, and sons-in-law Daniel and Travis all work in AWANA. Bill has also served in youth group, children’s church and Sunday school throughout his life.

Bill came to saving faith in Jesus Christ on Good Friday 1980 after hearing the gospel message proclaimed clearly. Coming from a background of works based theology, the words of Ephesians 2:8-10 were especially meaningful:

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith- and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God- not of works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared beforehand for us to do.

Realizing that he can still remember many of the things he learned as a child, he has been involved in ministry to children pretty much from the beginning of his spiritual walk. A firm foundation from youth is so important to him.
