Bill was born and raised in inner-city Baltimore, MD. He was born the second time at age 26 on December 3, 1967, while in the US Navy. God, His Word, and the local church became priorities in Bill's life, and the world was recognized for what it is. Bill's education included ten years in the US Navy, three years at Sacramento Bible Institute, eighteen years in missions in South Africa involved in church planting, and fourteen years as pastor of his home church, Vallejo Bible Church, Vallejo, CA. In 2010, the Lord led Bill and Joy to move to SD to have a part in equipping the next generation of workers for Jesus Christ. "What a privilege it is to know Him and to serve Him," Bill affirms. Bill teaches Systematic Theology at Cornerstone.
