Several years ago Pastor Bill accepted Christ as his Savior under the ministry of Pastor Gene Meyers, at First Southern Colona.  He immediately felt the call to the ministry.  After enrolling in the Southern Baptist Seminary Extension Program, under the guidance of Missions Director Leonard Morgan, Pastor Bill spent five years studying and earning his Diploma in Ministerial Studies.  Upon completing his studies he accepted the call to serve as Pastor of the Southern Baptist Church in Savanna, Il.  He went on to become the Associate Pastor at Northcrest Calvary Baptist Church located in Moline, Il.  where he served faithfully for five years.  In the spring of 2015, Pastor Bill, and his wife Vera, accepted the call to "come home" to FIrst Southern in Colona.  Today he faithfully serves First Southern, along with his wife Vera.  They are the proud parents of Nicole, and Grandparents of her daughter Issac.  Nicole is serving our Church Family with her Children's Church Ministry on Sunday Mornings.  Pastor Bill and his family have a heart for service, and are available anytime to help those in need.  Don't hesitate to call them to learn more about our Churches Ministries.  Cell Phone (309) 502-1669
