  • to the youth
  • to all adults
  • through all ministries


Pastor Bill Schilling


Pastor Bill Schilling grew up enjoying the farming life in Preble county where he learned such things as honest hard work and the “Golden Rule”.  In 1979 he met the man who gave us Matthew 7:12 and found an even greater purpose in life.  Jesus became very real to him and by 1981 he was preaching the Gospel.  He has spent the last 30 years in full time ministry sharing the salvation and love of Jesus Christ and has the pleasure of making Jesus real everyday to those he meets.  He is a Spirit filled conservative, believes in the fruit and gift of the Spirit, and that Jesus is the one true way to God.

He enjoys classic cars, fishing, gardening, and spending time with his grandchildren.

“Our goal at Brookville First is to make Jesus real and promote His love to all.  We are going on to perfection in love and would like to share the journey with you.”

God speed to all who truly love Jesus,

Pastor Bill
