Raised in Germany, Dr. Griffin started following Jesus in 1972 and had a life-changing experience with the Holy Spirit of God in 1973. He relented to God’s prompting to attend seminary in Berkeley, CA, but was profoundly disappointed in what he was taught. When finally he entered into the Ph.D. program at Graduate Theological Union, he did so with resolve to become a disciple-making seminary professor.
Alas, Bill confesses that he “got too smart for God” for a long, long time. But during his most difficult season as solo pastor of small church, Dr. Griffin at last returned to his First Love. Eventually he joined the faculty at Simpson University, became campus pastor there for one year, and now teaches at Right On Mission. Dr. Griffin’s big project is to serve as Old Testament editor for iBethel Church’s forthcoming translation of the Bible. Dr. Griffin also ministers (often in the middle of the night!) to church planters in Germany.
Bill Griffin’s mission statement is:
To prepare more people to discover the treasures of Truth.
