Bill was born in the small town of Lanett, Alabama in 1962. He attended high school at The Baylor School in Chattanooga, TN and college at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas, where he received his BBA in 1984. Driven to succeed in the corporate world in America, Bill also attended Belmont University in Nashville, TN where he earned his M.B.A. in 1988.
Bill’s initial career was in banking, and eventually moved into political fundraising, working for candidates like Rep. Bob Barr, a Georgia congressman, and Rep. Zach Wamp of Tennessee. He subsequently established Adams Fundraising, LLC, as a consulting company for political candidates.
It was during his time in politics that Bill began to feel a calling, occasionally setting out in his new home of Atlanta to speak with people about Christianity. By the end of the 1990s, Bill had completely abandoned his life in the world of business and politics. Rather than seek monetary gain or political power as his life’s goal, Bill answered God’s call to devote himself full-time to the mission of carrying the Gospel of Jesus Christ to people at major outdoor community events throughout Atlanta, the nation and even the world.
After ten years of full-time ministry, God has given Bill an unprecedented level of proficiency in communicating the Gospel at major outdoor community events. Much like a highly disciplined and effective athlete Bill excels in his God given craft of communicating the Gospel to tens of thousands of people at once and ultimately transforming an event from the kingdom of darkness to the Kingdom of Light.
