The Youth Staff is a blend of full-time and part-time staff members, summer interns, and youth volunteers.


Dr. William Ackerman:

Bill and his family came to Faith Church in 2007.  He and his wife, Kim, have been married for over 20 years and have son named Alex. Bill has been serving in youth ministry in various capacities for over 25 years in a variety of settings; most recently serving for 13 years as the Assoc. Pastor for Youth in a Presbyterian church in New Hampshire.  He has had the privilege of directing PFR’s Great Escape Conference in New England, and leading youth events for other renewal organizations such as PRRMI.  He has D.Min. and M.Div. degrees from Gordon-Conwell Seminary, and a B.S. in Chemical Engineering from Penn State University.  He has worked as an ordained youth pastor, design engineer, general contractor/developer, and has owned his own business. An outdoorsman, Bill loves to backpack, ski, and other outdoor sports. 
His vision for youth ministry is to lead kids to Christ, disciple them, and turn them loose to evangelize and make disciples among their peers.  To accomplish this goal at Faith, Bill has assembled a team of adults to work closely with teens on a weekly basis.  Concurrently, he and the youth staff work with a team of student leaders, who have taken the initiative to help their peers grow in their relationship with Jesus.  Bill desires to see a new generation of Spirit-filled believers arise who will wholeheartedly follow Christ and turn the world upside down once again.  If you would like to contact Bill feel free to use either of the following options:
