The son of the founders of Community Bible Study, Bill knows from personal experience that people grow in spiritual depth and Biblical knowledge when they use carefully constructed Bible studies illuminated with well researched commentary background. Bill saw Community Bible Study develop from his parents’ living room to an international ministry serving many thousands of people. Having written commentaries for Community Bible Study, he began writing material for the churches he pastored so he could connect Sunday sermons to weekly devotional reading, and small group Bible studies. He tested and improved materials in congregations over a period of 15 years, and through his Doctor of Ministry studies at Fuller Theological Seminary, he researched the most effective ways to build the BNEXT ministry. He also holds a Master of Divinity degree from Princeton Seminary and a Bachelor of Biology from Westmont College. Bill has written a variety of articles, publications, and books. Bill serves as executive director and president of the board for Scripture Awakening.
