There's a reason why everyone from CEO's of worldwide companies to heads of mission organizations to the newlyweds down the block want to have Bill Thrall as their mentor. His experience and wisdom prove true as he helps others establish trust in all their key relationships and nurtures grace-based communities. As the Vice Chair, co-author and leadership mentor for Leadership Catalyst (LCI) since 1995, Bill's genuine desire to see relational health in those he works with, has been vital in setting the tone of the organization. His eloquence and integrity have given him opportunities to teach LCI's principles internationally. His wisdom has been penned throughout the entire series of The Ascent of a Leader, Beyond Your Best, and TrueFaced Experience books.Prior to joining LCI, Bill founded and pastored the influential church, Open Door Fellowship, for over 20 years. While there, he developed an effective character development training program that nurtured visionaries such as Kit Danly, founder of Neighborhood Ministries in Phoenix, AZ. These training sessions became the basis for the TrueFaced message. In his spare time, Bill can be found fishing, crafting furniture for his family in his wood shop or cultivating fruits, vegetables and herbs in his beautiful backyard garden.
