Reverend Dr. Bill Pederson

Dr. Pederson is a life-long Presbyterian and a native Texan. His undergraduate degree is from Texas A&M University and his theological degrees are from Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary and Pittsburgh Theological Seminary. His ministry has taken him to churches in Weatherford, Texas, Round Rock, Texas, Matthews, North Carolina, and now San Gabriel Presbyterian Church. He is the father of two adult daughters. He swims and does yoga stretches for exercise on a weekly basis, and he enjoys hiking, gardening, golf, and is a mean ping pong player!

Bill says this about San Gabriel: “I love my work as a pastor! Parish ministry is exciting and exhilarating, particularly in a congregation that is growing like San Gabriel. I value working with people of all ages and count it a true privilege to be present in the name of Jesus Christ with people experiencing all aspects of life. I immensely enjoy teaching the Bible and I am humbled by the preaching task and believe wholeheartedly that God loves us tenaciously and is always present with us no matter what.”
