MEET BILL GRANEY:
Pastor here for ten years.
Born in Wilmington into a close-knit family.
I have learned to trust in and be surprised by the Holy Spirit. Jesus was conceived by the same Holy Spirit who comes to each of us.
I have empathy for the marginalized because I strive to look for the blessing and goodness in each and every person.
Saints in my life shaped me to value: pastoral care or service to others; the presence of God and prayer; beauty as path to God; silence & listening (the desert); that the life of faith is given in community; solidarity or universal brotherhood and sisterhood; manual work.
A great staff and pastoral council allow for collaboration while knowing that “the buck stops here.” I enjoy being a bridge between God and people.
