DR. WILLIAM H. “BILL” PHARES is a revivalist and author used by God to minister to “hurting” pastors and to bring renewal to thirsty congregations. He is an ordained United Methodist minister and is president of Stir the Fire Ministry in Helena, Alabama. He has pastored for twenty-eight years and has been an evangelist for ten years. Bill has a Master of Divinity degree from Emory University and a Doctor of Ministry degree from Columbia Theological Seminary.
Bill is the author of the just released book, For Those in Dry Places: Hope for Ministers in the Wilderness. Dr. Mark T. Barclay writes, “I highly recommend For Those in Dry Places which comes to us in absolutely supreme timing. Many pastors today are going through dry, tough times and can hardly see light at the end of the tunnel. Dr. Phares addresses what to do when you are in this position—how to deal with your thoughts and what to do, day after day, to get out of your current difficult situation and stay out.”
Bill and his wife, Laura, live in Helena, Alabama.
