My name is Bill Nance. I have many roles in life - Husband. Father. Youth Worker. Friend. Trainer. Author. Somewhere along the way, I’ve learned to enjoy the journey of life and savor the adventure that God is taking me on.
I’ve spent most of my adult life, over 20 years, working in youth ministry. I’ve been a volunteer, part-time youth worker, full-time youth minister, and all areas in between. I’ve served in rural, suburban, and urban settings. I graduated from bible college in 2003 with my bachelor’s degree in Youth Ministry. Then, because I am a glutton for punishment, I got my Masters degree in Education and Family Ministry in 2013. I’ve been published in Group Magazine and Youth Workers Journal. I’ve led workshops at national youth ministry conventions. I’ve written curriculum with Youthministry360. I’ve contributed to numerous online youth ministry resources. I’ve spoken to youth groups, churches, schools, universities, and community groups across the Midwest.
I share all that to say - I LOVE YOUTH MINISTRY!
I love ministering to teens, and helping them develop a growing relationship with Jesus. Along with that, I enjoy walking alongside fellow youth workers and helping them become better ministers to their teens.
I currently live in Columbus, OH with my beautiful wife and five crazy kids.
