Bill Schreyer

Position: Elder

Who is in your family?

Shelley, my dear sweetheart, and I were married in 1976. Shelley is the Restoration Art Center Director in Pflugerville with Mission: Possible! Austin, leading a neighborhood outreach. The Lord has blessed us with three children:

  • Cheryl is married to Ben Lowe and is in California with our grandchildren (Hannah, Hayley, Isaiah & Isabella)
  • Jacob and Channing Schreyer, currently in Austin, with our three grandchildren (Caleb, James and David).

How long have you attended Grace?

We have attended Grace for 38 years, shortly after our arrival from Long Island, New York.

 

How long have you been an elder? 

I have served for about 16 years.

 

What is your educational background and current job?

In 1976, I graduated from S.U.N.Y. at Farmingdale, New York and currently the COO/CQA of a local manufacturing operation.

 

What is your vision and passion for Grace Covenant Church?

My passion for all Christians and Grace Covenant Church is to know the reality of a joy-filled and abundant life, realized only through the on-going redeeming grace of God. This of course includes the transformation of our minds and character as we apply the truth of the Holy Scriptures. As we live Spirit-directed lives, our Lord is glorified and His presence and work within us is a drawing testimony to those that do not know Christ as Savior and King.

 

What is your prayer for Grace Covenant Church?

My fervent and continuing prayer for GCC is for the uncompromised truth of the Holy Scripture preached, taught, and lived through our lives until the Lord returns. I pray the result of this Living Truth will be an irrepressible love for one another, for those that need God’s salvation and a constant flow of souls coming to know His salvation.

 

What ministries are you currently involved with at Grace and in what ways are you discipling and/or mentoring other individuals or small groups?

  • Men’s Ministry leadership team
  • Quest Group Lead
