Bill Shiflett joined the Lenexa Baptist Church staff team in August of 2005. Bill has served dynamic churches in Oklahoma and Florida and served as the Worship Specialist for the Missouri Baptist Convention from 2003 to 2005. Bill holds both a Bachelor and a Masters Degree in music from Oklahoma City University.
Bill and his wife Kerri love serving as a part of the team at Lenexa Baptist Church! Bill became a Christian in May of 1991 while attending Northwest Baptist Church in Oklahoma City. Although he had grown up a strong Baptist, Bill realized that he did not have a personal relationship with God as he listened to guest speaker Larry Jones preach about "grieving the Holy Spirit of God." From that point, Bill sensed God's call to full time service to the Kingdom of God.
Bill is responsible for Worship Service planning and leadership as well as overseeing the Music needs of the church. Bill's heart is to train others to Worship and not just to sing or play.
Matthew 22:37 is his life verse:
"He said to him, 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the greatest and most important commandment.' "
Bill has served as a guest lecturer, worship leader and clinician for SBC Seminaries and Retreat Centers such as Ridgecrest, Glorieta as well numerous Associational clinics. Bill has also taught Worship Leadership as an adjunct professor at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Kansas City.
