"I have experienced Bill and his ministry in multiple settings over the years as a teacher, retreat leader, and counselor. I have found him to have excellent wisdom and to be very helpful as I have transitioned from stage-to-stage of my forty years in ministry. Bill is a non-anxious presence to bounce life off of in the midst of difficulty and complexity. I would not hesitate to send anyone from my congregation to him for help".
