Rev. Sandy Messick- Transitional Regional Minister

Interim Regional Minister

Rev. William (Bill) Robey

Bill Robey was affirmed by the Regional Board as the Northern Lights Region’s Interim Regional Minister in September 2022.  Bill comes well qualified as an interim minister, having shepherded seven congregations in the western United States through their own threshold times between pastors. He served as a settled congregational pastor in Louisiana and at Sumner First Christian Church in the former Northwest Region before “retiring” and becoming an intentional interim minister.  Bill also has experience in numerous regional capacities as well, including being part of the transformation and new church teams, and as acting Regional Minister during the previous regional minister’s sabbatical.
Bill is honored to be called to this role in the Northern Lights Region and to be serving the region and its congregations.

Bill lives near Puyallup, Washington with his wife Connie and their dogs Jake and Ringo.
