Bill Finley

Bill came on board with Search as the Area Director in the Raleigh and Triangle area on April 1, 2019. He has been in ministry since 1983, mostly as a lead pastor. Bill volunteered and led teams with Young Life for nine years. He planted a church in Charlottesville, VA, pastoring that church for fourteen years. Bill comes to Search from The Point Church in North Raleigh—a church he planted three years ago.

He enjoys helping people take their next steps with God by finding creative ways to connect their stories with God’s great story. He is passionate about seeing lives changed by the gospel, people discover their purpose in life, and developing high-level leaders. He is excited about taking God’s story outside church walls into the marketplace as a part of Search’s team

Bill is married to Cindy, and they have seven children. He is passionate about Jesus, his wife and his family. He loves being outdoors and enjoys reading about US. History, European History, and great leaders.
