He speaks frequently at churches and conferences around the world, and has been a guest on Focus on the Family, Moody Broadcasting Network, and many other programs. In his warm yet challenging style, he delivers real encouragement and practical exhortation that helps people:
* Discover and follow their destiny
* Recognize the presence of God in their everyday lives
* Uncover their potential and purpose in life
* Make their life count for God seven days a week
* Be a witness without witnessing
* Draw interest to, rather than fire for their faith in the workplace
* Become the husbands, fathers, wives and mothers God intended them to be
Bill loves to encourage and build into the lives of men, and for the last 25 years has focused a great deal of his ministry toward men. He served several years on Promise Keepers’ leadership training faculty and national speakers’ team. His book, What God Does When Men Pray, a Silver Medallion winner, was Promise Keepers’ first study guide and has sold over 200,000 copies.
As the former director of the Paul Tournier Institute, Peel co-authored the highly successful, “Saline Solution” continuing medical education course with his friend Dr. Walt Larimore. Together they've taught thousands of healthcare professionals around the world how to effectively communicate faith issues to their patients.
In the award-winning Going Public with Your Faith, Bill and Dr. Larimore translate this course into principles the average worker can use to impact his or her workplace with the gospel. According to reviews, this book “flies in the face of almost everything you’ve been taught about evangelism.” Bill, who doesn’t consider himself a gifted evangelist, says, “If Christians can grasp how simple it is to actually be a witness to their co-workers and understand how truly interested God is in their daily work, I believe we would see revival in our land.”
Bill received his bachelor's degree from Southern Methodist University and earned a masters degree from Dallas Theological Seminary. He and his wife Kathy have three adult sons and live in Dallas, Texas.
And did we mention he loves to fly fish.
