Bill Ball serves the Almaden Valley congregation as our gospel preacher and evangelist. His experience as a preacher covers over forty years, both in part-time and full-time work (beginning when he gave his first 15-minute “talk” at only fourteen). He was born in southern California in 1948, and received a B.A. in Speech Communications from California State University. He has worked with local congregations throughout California and Hawaii and preached on special occasions by request at others. He has three children and nine grandchildren; he and his wife, Amanda, frequently host “brothers” and “sisters” in their home in San Jose. Bill has most recently been a business owner (in the I.T. field), leaving it to work with the Almaden Valley church. His passion is in studying the Bible and sharing the gospel with others, both those who are disciples of Jesus as well as those who are seeking the truth but have not found it yet.
