IMG_2850.jpgThis month–June 2018–Pastor Hennessy is celebrating 10 years at North Church. A lifelong Presbyterian, he was born and raised in Lawrenceville, Illinois, where his mother remains active in the Presbyterian Church he grew up in. He met his wife, Beth, at McCormick Theological Seminary while they were both students. Beth is an ordained American Baptist minister. The couple have two children – Matthew, and Sarah.

Before coming to NPC, Bill was pastor to Westminster Presbyterian Church in Bay City, Michigan, in the Lake Huron Presbytery. Bill has also served as pastor of Doon Presbyterian Church in Kitchener, Ontario, and as associate pastor of Westminster Presbyterian Church in Peoria, Illinois. Bill holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in History from University of Illinois at Champaign – Urbana and a Master’s of Divinity from McCormick Theological Seminary in Chicago.

In their rare spare time, the Hennessys enjoy movies, reading, music, traveling, visiting state and national parks, hiking, and spending time with family and friends. Bill is also a self-taught student of the Irish penny whistle.
