Rev. Dr. Bill Schweitzer

Dr. Schweitzer served eight years active duty as an officer in the Marines. His final military assignment was an exchange tour in England.  He then left the Marines to complete a ministerial degree from the Free Church of Scotland College and a Ph.D. in the theology of Jonathan Edwards from Edinburgh University.  In 2007, the Evangelical Presbyterian Church of England and Wales (EPCEW), a denomination of 12 churches, invited Bill to plant a new church in the Newcastle/ Gateshead metro area.  Two years of prayer and Bible studies later, Gateshead Presbyterian Church (GPC) was begun. Several other church plants are in the works in this metro area. Bill and Pam were married in 1997, and have seven children.
