Bill Hull's passion has been to help the church return to its disciple making roots and he considers himself a discipleship evangelist. This God-given desire has manifested itself in twenty years of pastoral service and the authorship of ten books. His first book, Jesus Christ Disciplemaker, is celebrating 20 years with a new edition. The Disciple Making Pastor and the Disciple Making Church are two successive books which make up his popular disciple making trilogy. These books have provided the church with a new paradigm for disciple making.
After a fruitful ministry with Athletes in Action and receiving a Master of Divinity degree from Talbot School of Theology, Bill pastored in the Evangelical Free Church 20 years, spent eight years as the U.S. Director for the Evangelical Free Church of America and creating T-NET International, a training network dedicated to local church transformation. He currently writes, teaches, and serves as adjunct professor at several seminaries. Bill and his wife, Jane make their home in Long Beach, California and are the parents of two grown sons.
Bill is currently writing and teaching discipleship through the Choose the Life effort.
