About Bill Bremer
My parents and siblings were devout Missouri Synod Lutherans. Our farm house in Nebraska was a home of hospitality, often filled with the laughter of happy people. God was the source and center of our relationships. We prayed at every meal, shared the Word in daily devotions, regularly fellowshipped with other believers, and worked together. We lived worthy of our parents, helped one another, and enjoyed our family and our friends. Through this family and neighborly lifestyle, Messiah Jesus led us to know God our Father and helped us be faithful and loyal to God and one another. Even though we didn’t recognize this as participating in the kingdom; it was. I highly value this rich heritage.
After High School, I went to college for two years. Then, enlisted in the Air Force and served as a flight simulator technician for four years. After that, I went to night school at UNO to get a degree with a business major and math minor. Most of my work life was marketing telephone systems.
My search for more life in Christ began in the 1970’s. I began getting a picture of life in the kingdom of God and found marvelous light. Then, along with Judy, I began studying, receiving, and applying the gospel of the kingdom. Since I was raised Lutheran, I started by reading and studying the Bible, sola scriptura—Scripture only.
Over the years, my wife, Judy and I have shared in one another fellowship with all kinds of believers. We love them all. However, we have found very few have a picture of the kingdom that encourages living for the Lord in everything they do, including changing diapers. The inspiration and instruction many find at Church on Sunday just doesn’t seem to carry over to the rest of the week. So many settle for a drab spiritual future, seek fulfillment elsewhere, and end up unfulfilled.
My wife Judy and I participate in one another ministry at Springs Vineyard in Colorado Springs. Our pastor, Richard Clinton, does his utmost to help each part work properly (Eph 4:16).
