Pastor Bill Register began his ministry as an itinerant evangelist as soon as he finished high school and while he was enrolled in college. After two years at Emmanuel Bible College, he then enrolled at East Carolina University where he finished his undergraduate work and received his Bachelor’s Degree in English and Speech. He later earned a Master’s Degree at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
He spent several years as a traveling evangelist and as North Carolina state youth director. In those early years, he preached great revivals where many people were saved and filled with the Holy Spirit. Since 1961, he has been an ordained minister with the Assemblies of God. He has served as the senior pastor of churches in Florida and North Carolina. He was involved in planting the First Assembly of God church in Tarpon Springs, FL. After eighteen years as a Pastor, God led him into a ministry in Christian Television. He spent twelve years in this area of ministry producing two daily programs in which he taught the Word of God and conducted interviews.
In 1996 he decided to retire from active ministry. After a few years, however, the Lord began to stir his heart to begin his preaching and teaching ministry again. He started his active ministry again after long periods of seeking God in fasting and prayer. The Lord told him to follow the path of the Apostle Paul when he said, “I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified… and my speech and my message were not in plausible words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and power” (1 Cor. 2:2-4).
Pastor Bill is married to his wonderful ministry partner Carolyn, has three children and seven beautiful grandchildren.
