Bill Crowder joined the Our Daily Bread Ministries staff in 2001 after more than 20 years in the pastorate stretching from West Virginia to southern California to west Michigan. As Vice President of Teaching Content, Bill provides biblical and theological evaluation of the ministry’s content for their various ministry efforts. Additionally, Bill spends much of his time in a Bible-conference ministry around the world, serving ODBM offices and their outreach to their local communities, and in pastors’ encouragement meetings in North America.
Bill is a contributing writer for the Our Daily Bread devotional and has written many Bible study booklets for ODBM’s Discovery Series. He has also published several books with Discovery House Publishers, the latest being Seeing the Heart of Christ: How Jesus Cares for Hurting People. Bill also serves as a co-host with Mart DeHaan, Elisa Morgan, and Daniel Ryan Day on the “Discover The Word” daily radio program, heard nationwide.
On the personal front, Bill and his wife, Marlene, have been married for over 35 years and have five adult children, most of whom are now married—which means that they have a growing legion of grandchildren. To relax, Bill enjoys playing golf whenever possible, and follows sports, especially the English Premier League’s Liverpool Football Club.
