Bill Wills

Pastor of Student Ministries

I'm passionate about inspiring today's students to embrace God—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. With joy, I shepherd youth, drawing on my background playing football at Azusa Pacific University, where I earned a Psychology degree, and later obtaining a Masters in Divinity from Gateway Seminary and a Doctorate of Theology at Summit Bible College. My wife and I married in 2015 after meeting in Malawi, Africa, where we served as teachers and supported an orphan ministry. Since 2018, we've been active members at RiverLakes, where our family (including our three kids Caleb, Elena, Myla) find community and share a love for partnering in the gospel with families and youth. I look forward to guiding your youth in experiencing God's transformative love, growing in intimacy with the Father, understanding their identity in Christ, and living out their calling through the Holy Spirit. Let's mature joyfully in faith together! Personally, I'm a football enthusiast (go Niners!), enjoy food, hiking, movies, coffee, and quality conversations. Our family, including our bulldog Butters, welcomes you!
