Sports Ministry

A gathering place for the city of Lakeland...

We serve our community by providing an environment where sports will be enjoyed and where God’s truth will be shared.

Our Family Life Center is home to a variety of athletic leagues and open gym nights throughout the year with ages ranging from preschool to adult. This includes a FHSAA sanctioned fall basketball league for our area high schools where they can prepare for their upcoming season. We also offer a developmental basketball league for ages 4-11 in our Hoopsters program that runs January-February. For adults, we encourage you to come enjoy any volleyball, soccer, or basketball open gyms on the calendar. We desire for each of these times to honor God and provide common ground in community together. We invite you to come join us!

Bill has over 30 years of pastoral experience and has enjoyed the distinct privilege of serving the members at Heritage and community of Lakeland since 1997.
 Growing up in New England and a Roman Catholic background, Bill was captivated by the grace of God as a sophomore in college. This radical transformation and new life motivated him to study at Cedarville University (B.A.) and Clarks Summit University, formerly Baptist Bible College (M.Div). He then served in an exclusive Green Beret unit in the U.S. Army which the Lord used to continue to prepare him for vocational ministry. Bill’s foremost desire to make disciples of Christ motivates his responsibilities for preaching, leadership, and vision at Heritage. Bill is an all-things-Boston sports fan, a member of the Cedarville University Hall of Fame as a golfer, and avid reader. He is married to Ruth, and together they have three adult children: Art (Liz), Jessica (Adam), and Jenny (Zach); they also are blessed with five grandkids: Sissy, Sophia, Addy, Loren, and Fletcher.
