Bill Hart

Bill Hart, Conference Lay Minister

Bill is a widower with two grown children, Alex and Melissa. It had been Bill's dream, since he first came to Camp Alta as a young boy, to someday become part of our community. After his retirement as a government advisor, Bill saw this lifelong dream come true. He has been a resident of the Dutch Flat area (Chrystal Springs) for more than fourteen years, now, which he says "almost" makes him a local.

As a lifelong Methodist, Bill believes a faith in God is, at best, lukewarm if not coupled with service. He has served and continues to serve our community in a number of capacities, including as a chaplain with Emergency Services, Disaster Relief, area hospitals and hospice.

As the Lay Leader for Dutch Flat and a Conference Lay Minister (CLayM) for Gold Country Co-operative Parish (GCCP), Bill loves bringing the Word to those that would hear. He believes church is a place to praise God, come to know His gift of love and salvation found in Jesus Christ and, find support and give support for each other. For Bill, church is not for the perfect, but for those, like him, who have lived a broken life in a broken world. He welcomes all, no matter how "lost" they might feel.

Most days, when not serving the community, you can find him out in the diggins or TNF enjoying the Lord's bounty and looking for those that might need someone to "just listen".
