After studying at Duke University and Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, Bill was involved for eight years in pastoral ministry as a youth minister and church planter. After the heartbreak of a failed church plant, he took a position in 1992 teaching Bible at a Christian high school in Nashville, TN. During that time, he also coached the varsity boys track and cross country teams. There he found his real quest for the next twenty years, connecting the Bible to the hearts of high school students. Toward the end of that time, he felt the Holy Spirit’s urgings to pursue a new quest, one that would involve connecting the Bible to the hearts of men. Despite his initial fears and objections, his community encouraged him to begin something new. So in 2012, Bill left full-time teaching to begin Landmark Journey Ministries.
For the last six years, Bill has seen God open many new and wonderful doors. But the most compelling new opportunity was the chance to be trained as a spiritual director under Kris Miller’s tutelage. Bill loves doing this ministry and participating with the Holy Spirit in what He is doing in someone’s life. He often leaves his times of spiritual direction feeling wonder at seeing God’s hand at work. His general emphases in direction are helping others enter and structure silence with God, articulation of core desires, healing from past traumas, and learning to discern God’s voice.

In his spare time, he enjoys reading, backpacking, walking with friends, and playing the piano. If he has any claim to fame, it is being married to a very special woman for 32 years, Heidi. His other claim is having two adult daughters who are both amazing, Abigail and Rachel.
