Pastor of Refuge Calvary Chapel Huntington Beach, Bill Welsh came to Christ in 1970, and soon after began his journey of ministry work. He served as a worship leader, youth leader and took on various other ministry roles until becoming a pastor in the Coachella valley in 1978. With a heart for missions work and church planting, Bill, his wife Joy and their four children began doing missions trips to Australia in 1987 and eventually moved to Melbourne, Australia in 1991 where they started Calvary Chapel Melbourne. After expired visas sent the family stateside, Bill served on staff at Calvary Chapel Albuquerque for two years before accepting a call to pastor in Huntington Beach, Ca in 1997, where he still serves today. Serving not only within the walls of Refuge, Bill can also be heard on KWAVE (107.9fm) Monday through Friday at 4:30pm. His passion is to not only share the Gospel with the lost, but to equip believers to impact the world around them for Jesus, until

He calls us all home.
