Sing With Us!
What Is Worship?
Music and singing praise to God is one clear way for us to respond to God in worship, and it is a command to all (Psalm 66:1-2). It connects the truth of Scripture with the emotion of our hearts. It helps us remember deep truths about God as we go through our week.
Because of this, the words we sing are extremely important to us. We carefully select songs that accurately reflect and draw from the Word of God. If we have any question about the Biblical accuracy of a song lyric, we will not sing it. We want everything we say and do in our gathered times of worship to declare the truth of Jesus Christ and His gospel, and to lift Him up as the King of kings and Lord of lords.
Jesus is our Savior, and He has done great things for us. He is worthy of all praise and honor and glory. Join us as we offer up both our praise and our lives to worship our risen Lord!

More About Bill
Bill has been attending and working with Fellowship Bible Church for 9 years! He leads a team that makes space for people to meet with God and one another in order to help them find and follow Jesus. One of his favorite aspects of his role is helping develop leaders and seeing them flourish. Witnessing the Church come together and lift of the name of Jesus for who He is and what He has done.
Bill earned his M.Div. from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary and a M.A. In English Literature from the University of South Florida. Before joining Fellowship Bible Church 9 years ago, Bill was a worship pastor at Church at the Mall in Lakeland, FL. He also served as a campus missionary at the University of Florida with Baptist Collegiate Ministries. In those opportunities, he learned a great deal about the value of developing younger leaders, leading authentically, leading from love instead of fear, and making the gospel the center of all that he does as a leader of people and a leader in worship settings.
Bill is originally from Cleveland, Ohio, but spent the majority of his youth in Port Charlotte, Florida. He's married to Diane and they have three children - Ella, Liam, and Soren. When he isn't working, Bill enjoys dating Diane, hanging out with his kids (and losing to them at video games), spending time in the woods, reading, writing songs and poetry, and movies. One thing you may not know about Bill is that he does leather work and is an armature car mechanic (preferably when he wants to dabble, not when he has to!!
