Pastor Bill Ochs

Hi. I am Bill Ochs, the Senior Pastor for the Green Bay Seventh-day Adventist Church. My friends call me “Willy.” Please consider yourself a friend. I have been happily married to my wife, Gladys, for 33 years. We may not be as old as you think—we married real young. Gladys and I have three children, Jerry, John, and Rachelle, and three very active grandchildren—all boys!—Ben, Jameson & Oliver. We also have two cats, a sassy cat named Oreo and Tiger-Toes, who loves biting everyone's toes.

Gladys and I were converted in our early 20s, and we have been active in some type of ministry for 32 years. When I first became a Christian, I was a high school dropout, and by God's grace I received my Master's Degree in Theology from Andrews University. Not growing up in a “church” has helped us understand firsthand where people are coming from.

When you visit the Green Bay Church, please introduce yourself. We would love to meet you and hear what God is doing in your life. I know you will discover, as Gladys and I did, that the Green Bay Seventh-day Adventist Church is a warm and friendly place where service, love of the Bible and love for Jesus is of supreme importance. See you soon!

Pastor Zack Payne

Hi, I'm Zack Payne, the youth pastor. Aside from preaching and Bible studies, I enjoy spicy food, longboarding, and collecting vinyl records.

I am married to my beautiful wife, Allison, and we have an amazing little boy named Arthur. We currently live in Michigan, as I am attending the Seminary at Andrews University for my Master's of Divinity, but we're around often enough.

I'd love to get to know you and talk about life, God, philosophy, or whatever! Hit me up on e-mail or Facebook, or text/call me if you have any questions or you'd just like to chat.
