Creating lasting relationships while worshipping our Creator.

Meet our Worship Minister

Bill is a native Texan, born in Dallas, but grew up in the small town of Stonewall, Oklahoma, where he attended school.  Upon graduation from high school, Bill attended East Central University in Ada, Oklahoma, earning a degree in music education.  While a student at East Central, Bill, feeling God’s calling into the ministry, began to serve small churches as a worship leader and music minister.

After graduation from college, Bill served the First Baptist Church of Purcell, Oklahoma, and the Wooster Baptist Church in Baytown, Texas.  It was during his time in Baytown that he met and married Janet Lee, a graduate of Texas A&M University. 

After marriage Bill attended and graduated from the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary.  Upon graduation he and Janet moved to Stillwater, Oklahoma, where he served as Music and University Minister at the First Baptist Church.  It was during this time in Stillwater that Bill’s son, Brent was born.  In August of 1996 Bill and his family moved to College Station where he became Minister of Music at the First Baptist Church, a position that he still holds today.

Bill is a former member of the Oklahoma Singing Churchmen and the Singing Men of Southeast Texas and is currently an active member of the Singing Men of North Central Texas.
