Our Leadership

Bill Ludwig 

Lead Pastor

Ephesians 2:10

Often and lovingly described as the human exclamation point, Bill brings more than two decades of diverse ministry experience to the life and family of Five Stones. He delights in spending time with people and being a cheerleader for his staff as they follow where Jesus is leading. He and his lovely wife, Jen, have two adult children, a dog and a cat, and a few hundred chickens. His biggest passions are anything outdoors and helping others to discover how they are meant to love the world around them.
