How Long at John Wesley Church? Pastor Bill became the Worship and Administration Pastor in November of 2012.
Family My family is the most important thing in this world to me. My wife, Traci, and I have been married for 26 years. She coaches teachers in the Greenfield school district, loves walking/hiking together, new adventures, and playing piano.
My son, Nathan, is my buddy! He loves to play basketball, is a great drummer, and is one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet. He is also a "helpful hardware man" at Ace, and a college freshman. My daughter, Katie, sang for many years in the Indianapolis Children's Choir, plays piano, and is learning to drive. She is a high school junior this year, and works at Westminster Village. She enjoys making new friends, being creative, and having fun.
Everyone in the "Gue crew" serves on the JWFMC worship team. I love that we get to share our love for music and ministry together!
If we haven't met you and your family, please introduce yourself to us. We want to get to know you!

Why John Wesley? JWFMC is a church committed to the belief that Jesus' love is greater than our differences.
As imperfect people, we far too easily let our different viewpoints, preferences, backgrounds, etc. divide us. But scripture reminds us that ultimately, we are all just sinners saved by grace. We're all in the same boat. And we share the same hope in Jesus.
At a time when our world is at war with itself, and our culture is increasingly angry and divided, we dare to believe that the kind of love that serves others (rather than seeking to be served) can heal broken hearts, families, communities, and even our world!
And so, we at JWFMC try to live out this love that serves others. We don't do it perfectly. Sometimes we fail. But we are determined to work at it together. To grow together. To encourage one another. To love God, love others, and make disciples.
