In 2010, Bill had the privilege of becoming the Senior Pastor here at Putnam City Baptist Church where he began his ministry in 1986 as their Student Minister. He trusted Christ as his Lord and Savior in 1981 through the influence of his high school sweetheart, Cami, who is now his wife, the mother of their four children, and his best friend. They have served the Lord in full-time ministry since 1986. Bill has served Southern Baptist churches in Oklahoma, Arkansas and Georgia. He has also been serving as a Regional Director for Next Level Leadership with the North American Mission Board for the past 12 years providing leadership development and training for the Southern Baptist Convention. He didn’t grow up being actively involved in a church and didn’t experience God’s grace until the end of his high school years. Consequently, Bill has a huge passion to reach out to those who are separated from God’s love and see them discipled in their faith.
