Pastor Bill Slabaugh has over forty years of pastoral experience having served both large and small churches in Idaho, Kansas, and Nevada as Pastor. Majoring in Bible Interpretation and Exposition, he has received Master's Degrees from Central Baptist Theological Seminary and Dallas Theological Seminary. While attending Dallas Seminary, Pastor Bill worked for Insight for Living in international program production and editing. He also wrote a chapter on prayer in the Bible study guide, "Steadfast Christianity."
While he was serving a multi-staff church in North Idaho, Pastor Bill's radio broadcast called "Beholding His Glory" could be heard weekly on the American Christian Network and monthly on Moody Northwest. He has taught seminars on "Arrows in the Hand of a Warrior" (Christian parenting), "How Christ Builds His Church," and "Applied Christianity." With his wife, he has written Bible study workbooks: "Be Imitators of God as Beloved Children" and "Discipline Yourself for the Purpose of Godliness."
Expository preaching and teaching with specific application to daily life, the discipling of spiritual leaders, guiding in spiritual growth, and spiritual formation are his heart-felt joys. Pastor Bill rejoices to see people come to a saving faith in Jesus Christ and come to understand how they are specially gifted of God to serve Christ and one another as Christ is formed in them. His personal devotion is to the Word of God and prayer (Acts 6:4) and He is in labor until Christ is formed in the lives of the believers whom he is privileged to serve (Gal. 4:19).
