William Ronzheimer, DPhil
Dr. Bill Ronzheimer was the founding pastor of Alliance Bible Church (ABC) in Mequon, WI and served as its Lead Pastor for over 39 years. The longevity of their ministry enabled Bill and his wife, Pamela, to experience the triumphs and trials that occur in family and church life over a period of decades. During their ministry, ABC planted two churches and completed four building programs.
While serving in Mequon, Bill and Pamela also served the Christian & Missionary Alliance as their Pastoral Care Team to its overseas workers in France and a “creative access” country. Their role included yearly international trips and speaking as well as domestic trips to offer pastoral care to overseas workers while on their Home Assignment. They served in that appointed capacity for 12 years.
During his ministry in Mequon, Alliance Bible Church shared Bill on two occasions with Trinity International Church of Paris, France where he and Pamela served in an interim capacity. In the closing years of his ministry in Mequon, Bill served as an Adjunct Faculty for Crown College prior to beginning his work at UNWSP.
Bill is now President of Marriage Reconstruction Ministries, Inc. whose mission is to help men and women rebuild marriages affected by childhood sexual abuse. Bill & Pamela minister together in bringing a message of hope and healing to other individuals and couples.
Bill and Pamela have been married for 45 years. Their townhome in Shoreview, Minnesota is in close proximity to their two daughters, sons-in-law, and three grandchildren. Both daughters attended UNWSP.
