  • Dr. William P. Smith, Counselor, Serving Leaders Ministries

    Dr. William P. Smith is passionate about showing people how God longs to connect with them in the midst of their fear, shame, apathy and sin.

    Bill earned his Bachelor’s in Computer Engineering at Drexel University, Masters of Divinity in Biblical Counseling at Westminster Theological Seminary and Doctorate in Sociology at Rutgers University.

    Before joining the ServingLeaders team, Bill served for eight years as director of a church-based counseling center (which he was asked to develop) at a Philadelphia suburban church. There, he counseled individuals and oversaw the development of interns and staff.

    In total, he spent nearly twelve years serving at that church, in various ministry roles as a staff member, Pastor of Counseling, interim pastor for another congregation, Pastor of Shepherding Ministries, and Senior Pastor of Worship. His ministerial responsibilities included counseling, teaching, providing pastoral input to leaders of support groups and small groups, and — as senior pastor — overseeing the public worship of the congregation and preaching the majority of the Sunday morning messages. 

    Bill also spent thirteen years with the Christian Counseling and Educational Foundation (CCEF), where he counseled, taught regionally and internationally as a faculty member, served as the Associate Editor for the Journal of Biblical Counseling, and developed the distance education program for the organization.
