Pastor Bill Liversidge's Biography
A native of Melbourne, Australia, Bill's diverse ministry includes spending ten years as a missionary in New Guinea, ministering to several congregations as their pastor, and Ministerial Director at Columbia Union.
He attended Avondale College in Australia; Andrews University Theological Seminary in Berrien Springs Michigan; and Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, California.
Pastor Liversidge has a highly developed teaching style based on the inductive method. Able to overcome preconceived notions and limited perspectives, the inductive approach has led thousands of people to gain tremendous spiritual insights, convictions, and growth. The real power is in the Word, under the twin guidance provided by the Spirit and Body.
Bill's students are highly motivated as they discover for themselves the great truths of Scripture, as they study individually and in groups. As Bill's students study, they've made profound discoveries in the Word of God and the book of Revelation especially has begun to yield its secrets through the group discovery process. Many have experienced life-changing encounters with God through these dynamic seminars, which are open to people of all faiths and denominations.
Bill's commitment to the priesthood of all believers and the Biblical blueprint for church growth remains undiminished. As President of Creative Growth Ministries, Pastor Liversidge is dedicated to equipping believers with the biblical principles that will enable them to develop their spiritual gifts and move into effective ministry, so that they reveal Christ and His character through His living Body - the Church. All members are thereby lifted up to their maximum God-intended potential within the whole Body.
