Meet Our Staff

Pastor Bill is a native Wisconsinite, most recently serving in Fort Atkinson for the past 13 years.  Pr. Bill brings with him a great deal of experience in ministry of Word and Sacrament, youth ministry, hospital and shut­-in ministries with his dog Sandy, and adult education.  In addition to serving his congregation, Pr. Bill thinks that it is important for a pastor to serve the community as well.
Installation will be at a special worship service Saturday, December 6, at 5:00pm.  Bishop Jeff Barrow will be presiding and Pr. Chuck Brummond from the synod office will be in attendance. Grace is excited to see what the next chapter of “Grace In Action” will look like!
