Pastor Bill is responsible for the oversight, direction and expansion of John 17:23 Pastoral Suppot Groups in West Michigan. His passion is to encourage, mentor and coach pastors in helping them navigate through personal and ministry issues. He is a consultant to lay and ministry leaders for spiritual development and church growth and is frequently asked to fill pulpits and partner in seminars, conferences, and retreats in addressing the issues of pastoral ministry in the 21st Century.

The vision of Barnabas Ministries – to connect, encourage, and equip pastors in 21st Century Ministry - aligns perfectly with Pastor Bill’s passion. He was a staff member of Barnabas Ministries in Hopkinton in 2008 and then, in 2009, the Lord called Bill back to Michigan where he brought with him the concept of John 17:23 Pastoral Support Groups.

Close to 80 pastors in the West Michigan area are committed to sharing life together in the context of the John 17:23 movement. Eight groups exist within the following areas today with the expectation of more groups developing.

Grand Haven Grand Rapids Grant
Muskegon (8) New Era/Hart/Shelby Northside
