Raised in central Arizona, Bill received an engineering degree from Brown University. He served as a campus minister for seven years at the University of Arizona, Stanford University, and Osh State (Kyrgyzstan), going on to complete a M.A. in Politics and Ph.D. at the University of Dallas. After grad school, he moved with his family to the Czech Republic, where he served for 8 years as a lecturer with Anglo-American University and New York University’s study abroad program. Returning to the US, Bill taught at a Christian great books program in Minneapolis that included a 5 week course on fine arts in Florence, Italy. In graduate school he experienced meaningful conversations involving the great thinkers of Western civilization, fellow students, professors and the Truth of the Scriptures. Bill’s view of reality expanded; he was humbled and challenged to communicate with clarity, kindness and grace. The skills, knowledge and wisdom came with responsibility and implications for every area of life—from parenting to managing work projects to serving in the church. Bill longs to see God impart the Gospel as well as that kind of education to other young men and women. He and his wife Lisa have been married 25 years and have two sons: Caleb (23) and Joshua (20). He enjoys traveling, hiking, working out, and watching football of both kinds. Another lesser love is gastronomy, as they say in the Old World—aka cooking and sharing good food & drink with others.
