It is with great sadness that we inform you that Bill Shoemaker, Director of Mobilizing Disciples, passed away Friday evening May 29, 2020 after developing complications from surgery following a heart attack.
We are heartbroken by the loss of our dear brother and co-laborer in Christ, but we don’t grieve as those without hope (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18). Bill was the example of a servant leader and we are grateful for the countless lives that were impacted through his life, ministry and service. It certainly comes as no surprise that Bill spent his last afternoon on earth serving others – that’s just who he was.
Please pray for Bill’s wife Candice and their children Kristina, Nate, Stephanie and Mark and their families. Pray for Bill’s co-workers at the General Conference in Findlay as well as the many leaders across the Churches of God, General Conference who have been impacted by Bill’s faithful work.
Bill leaves a rich legacy of loving Jesus and loving people. We take great comfort in knowing that Bill is at home with the Lord Jesus whom he loved and served so faithfully.
