Bill Bennett, Pastor

Bill is a graduate of Reformed Theological Seminary and is ordained in the Presbyterian Church in America.  His broad ministry experience ranges from teenagers to senior citizens, pre-marital counseling to backyard Bible clubs, large group preaching to small group fellowship.  He was encouraged to become a church planter while in seminary.  When Bill and Jill and their six children moved to Jefferson in 2015 they found it to be a perfect fit for their family and their ministry.

Bill now volunteers for the Jefferson Fire Department and Jill is a stay-at-home-mom.  Their two older children, Chet and Jane, work locally while Jake, Tate, Knox and Ty attend Jefferson City Schools.  The Bennetts love calling Jefferson home and have found that they feel they've lived here all along.  When he's not at home or at the church, Bill might be found at the fire station, cheering on the Dragons with Jill, or at one of the local restaurants, "shooting the bull."

Having lived in small southern towns his whole life, Bill has an appreciation for family and hard work.  Later in life, he has come to understand (and is still understanding) the beauty of the Gospel of grace versus trying to get better and stay better.  His desire is to share this Gospel in Jefferson, with the hope that people will come to know the freeing and transforming grace of Jesus Christ.
