Bill studied at Duke University and Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. After graduation, 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 Christ Presbyterian Academy in Nashville, TN. During that time, he also coached the boys track and cross country teams.
Bill found his quest for the next 20 years — connecting the Bible to the hearts of high school students. But toward the end of that time, he began to feel God’s urging him to pursue a new quest. This one would be connecting the Bible to the hearts of men. Despite his initial fear and objections, his community encouraged him to begin something new. In 2012, Bill left full-time teaching to begin Landmark Journey Ministries.
