Bill Weatherford has been Director of Student Ministries since 2015. He and his wife Karlye have five children. They have been members of West Haven Baptist since 2003. Bill is a family practice physician in Tonganoxie.

The oldest of ten children, he was raised by parents who faithfully taught him and his siblings what it meant to have a real and vibrant relationship to Christ. Bill became a Christian at a young age. He grew up in a Bible-teaching church that challenged him to grow deeper in his faith.

When Bill began leading the student ministry at West Haven, he did so with the goal of sharing the gospel with those students who didn’t have a relationship with Christ and challenging those students who did have a relationship with Christ to grow deeper in their walk with Him. He feels that investing in the lives of our students is vital, as they are the next generation of the Church. It is our responsibility to help them lay a strong foundation in their faith as they transition into adulthood.

In college, Bill read the verse Philippians 3:10: “My goal is to know Him and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death.” He has tried to make this the goal of his life ever since.
