Pastor of Business Administration
As our Pastor of Business Administration, Bill Minchin, is responsible for overseeing the business aspects of the church—namely finances and legal matters. He and his wife Elisa have been married since 1972, have two children, Steven and Renee, three grandchildren, Anthony, Lydia, and Nathan, and a fourth on the way.
Bill was born in Watertown, NY, and grew up in the suburbs of New Hartford, NY in a Christian home. Though his family were regular church attendees, it was not until the age of 16 that Bill received Christ into his life. He graduated from New Hartford High School, and went on to receive an Associate Degree at Mohawk Valley Community College, and later his Bachelor’s Degree in Civil Engineering at Clarkson University in Potsdam, NY.
Two years after the Minchins began attending Grace Fellowship in 1999, Bill left his engineering job to become a full-time staff member at Grace. Bill says that in the 12 years he’s been at Grace, he has truly come to appreciate a very healthy leadership structure within the organization.
In his spare time, Bill enjoys running, biking, reading, spending time with his grandkids, and working on home remodeling projects. He would like to take Elisa to Italy, to explore her family ancestry, and enjoy their favorite cuisine.
