Bill Welsh - 2019 Israel
Currently pastoring in Huntington Beach, California, Bill Welsh came to Christ in 1970, and soon after began his journey of ministry work. He served as a worship leader, youth leader and took on various other ministry roles until becoming a pastor in the California desert near Palm Springs in 1978. With a heart for missions work and church planting, Bill, his wife Joy and their four children began taking missions trips to Australia in 1987 and eventually moved to Melbourne, Australia in 1991 where they planted a church. After expired visas sent the family stateside, Bill served on staff with a church in Albuquerque, NM directing a school of ministry for two years. Following that he accepted the call to pastor in Huntington Beach, CA in 1997, where Bill and his family still serve today.
