After a 35-year management and executive leadership career Bill has accepted the call to serve as the C12 Chair for Central South Carolina. The bulk of Bill’s experience can be characterized as complex and hazardous operations. Specific assignments include; Nuclear Submarine Officer, Nuclear Reactor Operations Manager, Nuclear Operations Senior Technical Consultant, Energy R&D Program Director, and Senior VP of Construction.
At the halfway point of his life, Bill entered what he refers to as his “constructive mid-life crisis”. He entered the “locker room” with a lot of first half highlights, but realized he had not been intentional about his Ephesians 2:10 calling. A year and a half later Bill started the second half by taking his first confirmed Kingdom assignment, Director of Operations at Fellowship Church in Knoxville, TN. Since that time Bill has prayerfully approached career opportunities in faith, believing God to confirm the good works He has planned and prepared for him to complete. The C12 Chair assignment is no exception. It’s clear Bill has been prepared “for such as time as this”, as God’s movement in the marketplace advances in Central South Carolina.
Successful people ask better questions and, as a result, get better answers. Many accomplished CEOs are infamous for their curiosity and enthusiastic questioning of customers and staffers alike. Asking timely, strategic questions is a conversational skill that makes us better at everything related to life and leadership.
