Rev. William Clark, Associate Pastor

Bill Clark was born March 5, 1954, in Montgomery, Alabama, where he also grew up. His family were members of Covenant Presbyterian Church there, which withdrew from the Presbyterian Church, US to the Presbyterian Church in America in 1973.

Being the youngest of three children, and finances being tight, he sought and obtained an Army scholarship for college, choosing to attend the University of Alabama, where he studied accounting. It was during his time in college, that the Lord used a Campus Crusade staff member to bring Bill to saving faith in Jesus Christ. He later helped found the InterVarsity Christian Fellowship chapter at the University, and became its first president.

Bill graduated from college in 1976, and then served four years in the U. S. Army as a Quartermaster at Fort Carson, in Colorado Springs, Colorado. During his time in the Army, Bill began to feel led to pursue the Gospel ministry, and enrolled first at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary near Boston, Massachusetts. After two years, he transferred to Covenant Theological Seminary in St. Louis, Missouri, because he wanted to pursue ministry in the Presbyterian Church in America.

Bill has served churches in Fort Walton Beach, Florida, Carbondale, Illinois, and at Malvern Hills PCA in Asheville, North Carolina, before coming to Covenant Reformed.

He and his wife, Cecelia, met at a singles Bible study at Trinity Presbyterian Church in Montgomery, Alabama, and were married in 1983. They have three boys, Andrew, Joshua, and Daniel.
