Each year in November, NAB pastors and wives from Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columia gather in Banff, AB for an outstanding time of worship, inspiration and relaxation.  This event is a good reminder that the ABA is part of a larger ministry that stretches far beyond Alberta, and it is an opportunity to build relationhips with pastoral colleagues from across Western Canada.  Those who attend enjoy the wonder of the Banff National Park, the exceptional amenities, encouragement and challenge from outstanding speakers. Renewal, relaxation and rest are the order of the day.

Bill studied at Capernwray Hall, England, Columbia Bible Collegein Columbia, South Carolina, Canadian Theological Seminary, and defended his PhD dissertation through University of Aberdeen in Scotland in October 2006. He pastored for just under 16 years in Alliance Churches in Ontario and Saskatchewan and served for 26 years as Professor of Pastoral Theology at Ambrose University in Calgary, Alberta. He retired as Professor Emeritus of Practical Theology in June of 2019. Bill authored two books, Sacred Space for the Missional Church, February of 2011 and Four Essential Loves: Heart Readiness for Leadership and Ministry, May 2013. Bill and his wife Heather have been married for since 1974 and been blessed with four wonderful adult children, all of whom are married and six amazing grandchildren.
