Rev. Bills graduated from Reformed Presbyterian Theological Seminary in May 2016 with a Masters of Divinity. He was ordained and installed as the pastor of Lifeline on June 25, 2016.
Before his installation, Rev. Bills was Lifeline's pastoral intern for four years. The last three of those years, Rev. Bills preached most Sundays and received mentoring from Rev. David Johnston. The time and experience through his internship have prepared him and his wife for full-time ministry. Suppose you ask him about his experience as an intern. In that case, he will tell you, "With school, it was hard at times, but it was through those hard times I learned more about my inabilities and God's mightiness."
When asked about his vision for Lifeline, he said, "To see Jesus Christ honored and lifted up as people are discipled to Him."
When asked, "What motivates you for ministry?" he said, "I want to see people saved, but that is the work of Jesus Christ. I am motivated by the Cross. It is not because of what it can do for others, but because of what it did for me. Jesus took my place on Calvary. Jesus is the General who gave his life so His enemy could live. As the man who received the gift of life through His sacrifice, I will raise Him up and honor Him as the Son of Man who gave it all so I could live. Many soldiers die in battle, and those whose lives are spared have a sense of honor for their fallen soldiers, and some even have a sense of guilt because they survived. With Jesus Christ, while I was yet His enemy, He died for me. I once felt the guilt of my survival, and although that guilt has faded, my sense of spiritual honor grows as my relationship with Him grows. And why does it grow? Because the more I learn about the man who died for me, the closer we become. So what motivates me is the knowledge of who Jesus Christ is and what He did on the Cross."
Rev. Bills and his wife Lisa are both sincere advocates for the widowed and orphaned and are currently foster/adoptive parents.
