Bill accepted the Lord in June of 1975 in California and began full-time Christian ministry in January 1977 with a Christian house ministry called “The Lord’s Place”, where people were provided a place to live in a Christian environment. In August 1977, he accepted a staff position with Horizon Christian Fellowship of San Diego as assistant Pastor to Mike MacIntosh. Bill served under Mike for the next 9 years until he felt called to move to Indianapolis, Indiana.
Bill has been senior Pastor of Horizon Christian Fellowship of Indianapolis since it started in July 1988 beginning with a Bible study in Bill and Vi’s living room. Under Bill’s supervision, Horizon Christian School and a 2-year full-time Calvary Chapel Bible College extension program were established at Horizon. Bill’s vision of a church-planting fellowship has resulted in new churches being birthed in the United States and internationally.
