Bill experienced a radical conversion to Christ while attending the University of Tennessee on a wrestling scholarship in 1979. Along with his wife Connie, he began fulltime Christian ministry in 1981. Up until 1986, Bill and Connie pioneered and led campuses churches in California, Arizona and New Mexico. Besides ministering on university campuses throughout the Western United States, Bill began traveling into various African countries in 1982. Then in 1987 Bill and Connie moved to Johannesburg, South Africa. They pioneered the His People Christian Church which grew to a couple thousand, and became an apostolic base for church planting in Africa. Over the next 18 years Bill worked with leaders and teams to plant churches and campus ministries in every major city in South Africa. He also served leaders and churches in Namibia, Zimbabwe, Zambia, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Botswana, Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, Nigeria, Ghana, Sierra Leone and the Ivory Coast.
In 2005 Bill and Connie established a second base in Nashville, Tennessee, while simultaneously moving their African base to Cape Town, South Africa. Over the next 5 years they served multiple churches and leaders in Africa and the United States; their focuses being revival, reformation and cultural transformation. From 2007-2009 they led the leadership team for the 7000 member His People Church in Cape Town, South Africa.
Bill and Connie are currently pioneering a leadership alliance called BMosaic. BMosaic is a gathering of Jesus-centered, relationally-connected and kingdom- minded leaders who are partnering together for the purpose of bringing the glory of His kingdom everywhere. They are also currently launching a new church in Cape Town called Journey of Grace.
