William S. Wilson

Biography

GENERAL DESCRIPTION
Throughout my career, I was able to balance my secular responsibilities with my ministries as a teacher of the Bible. Studying and teaching the Bible has always been a priority in my life. Through the years, I realized that the people in my Bible classes were not using the thinking and learning skills I found essential in my roles as a Business Executive, a Management Consultant, a College Professor, a Bible teacher, and an individual committed to knowing God's Word.
Upon retiring and moving to Eugene, Oregon, I committed to write spiritual books, which would help the ordinary believer learn how to study the Bible on their own. The goal was to teach them how to find out on their own what their God has done for them and what He wants to do with them today.
BOOKS IN PROGRESS
This Bible Study Book is the first one actually completed. The following books are in various stages of development and will be published shortly:
1. Targeted Bible Study Slide Program: A PowerPoint slide program designed for conducting group training on Bible Study. Nearing Completion and will be published soon

3. Malachi: An Old Testament Challenge to the Church today
4. Beatitude Living: How Jesus Taught Citizens of the Kingdom are to live
5. Spirit-Filled Living: Victorious Christian living as empowered by the Spirit
BUSINESS CAREER [1962-2004] [Forty two Years]
In my career, I went through numerous training programs designed to teach me how to be a careful analyst, business strategist, problem-solver, decision maker, and communicator. Such courses covered efficient speed reading, financial and economic analysis, practical problem-solving, professional decision-making, strategic planning, professional management, and effective communication. As a Management Consultant, I received advanced training and experience in business problem-solving, industry and economic analysis, the development of top-level corporate strategy, and enhanced presentation skills. In my fourteen years as a College Professor, I developed and taught upper-division business courses designed to teach students many of the same disciplines.
[MINISTRIES [1960 to date] [Fifty-two Years]
Throughout my working career, I continued to teach the Bible in my roles as a Youth Leader, a teacher of adult Sunday School classes, the leader of weekday Bible classes, a conference speaker, and a seminar speaker.
When I started teaching right out of Graduate School, I soon realized the people I was teaching did not have the training to study the Bible the way I thought was normal. So I started using many of my business thinking strategies to make my Bible classes come alive for my students. I got them excited and showed them how to use the same kind of thinking skills in their personal studies. Over the years, I conducted numerous Bible Study Seminars in the Churches attended.
