Listen to Bill’s preaching a few times and you will quickly glean a few insights: the Chicago native is a staunch fan of the Bears and Cubs. He’s so passionate about the Gospel that he followed God’s call across the country to plant a church in Washington, DC. He adores his wife of eleven years, Alissa, and their three young children: Zoe, Liane, and Simon. And, he has an insatiable appetite for studying and sharing biblical theology.
Bill earned a BA from Trinity International University in Deerfield, IL in 2002. He went on to a Master of Divinity at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, graduating in 2005. The Riedels then spent 4 ½ years serving at Faith Church in Indianapolis before heading east to Capitol Hill. Bill’s a true family man, but don’t let that "coiffed do" fool you. Our lead pastor has a few true rocker roots-he used to be in a band. He may have left behind his long locks when he left Indiana, but his blues harmonica and motorcycle successfully made the move.
