Bill Sturm serves as the Senior Pastor at Sandy Ridge Baptist Church of Hickory, NC. Previously, he served as the Associate Pastor of Berean Baptist Church in Fayetteville, NC following almost nine years on active duty in the United States Army. He otherwise specializes in Chaplaincy, World Religions, and Church History. His most recent formal education was the completion of his Th.M. from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary (2014). He was saved out of a life of “Sinner’s Prayer”-ism and placed his faith in the finished work of Christ alone in 1999.

Bill has felt the call to ministry most of his life, having preached as a 5th grader to his peers in childrens’ church. He is a student of Scripture, a student of his family, a student of people, and enjoys theological reasoning, ethics, and the game of soccer. He currently serves as a Chaplain in the United States Army Reserve. His greatest challenge is his prayer life. Preaching Christ and His cross are Bill’s passion. He is happily married to Nikki–his wife of 18 years, and they have three children.
