Bill Selby is an Ordained United Methodist Minister since 1974 who has led both small and large churches in Indiana, Wyoming, and Colorado, including a new church development in Highlands Ranch, Colorado. He will be leading our Leadership Training Workshop,
on July 12, 2014.
Prior to ministry he was in Research and Development designing small arms for the military during Vietnam and later taught Mechanical Engineering at the Eau Claire Technical Institute, the University of Wisconsin – Stout, and finally at Indiana State University.
In 1995, from his experiences, especially in the church, Bill created a new ministry resource for churches and leadership, “Growth With Integrity Resources”, created to empower the local church and its leadership. One of the resources based on Family Systems was developed specifically for clergy, “The Center For Pastoral Effectiveness of the Rockies” and became a separate ministry. Centers have been in CO, UT, WY, MT, NE, IA, and KS with almost 500 clergy alumni.
Bill is sought out by leaders of churches, non-profit organizations, and corporate companies. He is most noted for his work in empowering leadership to be less reactive to the natural reactivity of their organizations as they seek to become more self-differentiated non-anxious leaders and a more healthy organization.
Academically, Bill is a graduate of the Black Hawk Junior College (AA), University of Wisconsin – Stout, Menomonie Wisconsin (BS, MS), and Christian Theological Seminary – Disciples of Christ, Indianapolis, IN (M.Div.)
He grew up in a very small town in Illinois and married the girl across the street, Sherilee. They have one son, Chris, two chosen daughters, Carla with a granddaughter Hannah, and, Nancy and her partner Kim, with a grandson, Colten.
Bill loves to rebuild and drive his ‘72 MG Midget, golf, and most sports. He especially enjoyed a “bucket list” experience of the Colorado Rockies Fantasy Baseball Camp in 2012.
