Bill, his wife Lisa have been attending Lynwood since 1998. They have three children, Lexie, Luke and Rachel. Prior to Lynwood, Bill served in youth ministry for a number of years and received his undergraduate degree in Religion and some psychology at Columbia University (NYC), and Seminary MDiv at Azusa Pacific (Azusa, CA). “My role as Pastor basically means I talk, read, and write. Of those, talking is one of my favorites, and there is little I enjoy more than getting a cup of coffee with someone and talk about big things. My passion is to help people take a step of faith. It matters not to me if it is someone who is not interested in God now taking an interest, or someone who has been trying to follow Christ for years doing something that requires a new amount or type of faith. I sense God in those encounters and love to have a front row seat to what he is doing in the lives of people.” Bill loves games, stories, and coming up with solutions for the World’s problems. Mainly he prefers to be a little knowledgeable about lots of things instead of an expert on one thing.
