Bill Coleman, a life-long member of the Paris area and First Paris, recently answered his
call to the ministry in the spring of 2013. Upon completing his ministry requirements, he was
appointed to serve the church as an Associate Pastor allowing him to maintain his position as
Senior Vice President at Liberty National Bank and continue to serve on various community
organizations. His responsibilities at First Paris include assisting in worship services and
overseeing adult education and curriculum.
Bill and his wife, Carla, were both raised in the church and are very thankful to be able
to worship with their children, Chase and daughter-in-law Leia, Nathan, and Mallie; along with
their other family and friends at First Paris.
It is Bill’s hope that his experiences outside the church will provide a unique perspective
to others about the many opportunities we can be called to serve our Lord. “I am very grateful
to be able to answer my call to the ministry at a place where my faith has so many deep roots”,
Bill states. “It is truly an honor to serve my Lord and the members of First Paris.”
