In the Summer 1993 issue of Multiply (Volume 1), there is this quote: "The congregation prospered under the leadership of pastor Bill Mahlow, who came in 1967 and led the church 22 years. Mahlow created a climate which encouraged church members to launch ministries that were on their heart. His philosophy: 'If someone wants to do something for the kingdom, how can we help them?' "
Rev. Mahlow's published works include Gifts of Assurance; A Word for the Children; Devotions by Uncle Bill, volumes 1 - 5; Devotional Tape Recording, tapes 1 - 9; From a Pastor's Heart; and Devotions for Today.
