Bill Connors

Lead Pastor

Bill grew up in an Irish-Catholic family just outside of Boston. Although his parents consistently brought him to church, trying every means imaginable to get him to stop crawling under the pews and start paying attention, he entered adult life with no particular faith in God. During his twenties, Bill came to believe that Jesus really is God, and began experiencing firsthand the transforming power of God’s grace.

After graduating in 1992 with a BS in Mechanical Engineering, Bill worked ten years for W.L. Gore and Associates, best known as the maker of Gore-Tex® Outerwear. Early in his career, Bill enjoyed using his creativity to invent patented new products and technologies. After a few years, he migrated from technical work to roles in product management and marketing. Beginning in 1998, Bill launched and managed Gore’s market-leading Elixir® Guitar Strings business.

Out of a desire to help others to know and to follow Jesus, Bill left corporate life in 2003 to prepare for pastoral ministry at Covenant Seminary. Upon graduation, Bill and his family moved to Denver to complete a church planting apprenticeship and to begin laying the groundwork for Denver Presbyterian Church.

Bill, Michele and their four children live in Stapleton. When not sharing a meal with friends, they enjoy the outdoors, music, photography, reading, and a variety of sports.
