Bishop Will Willimon says, “We remember Bill’s wife Peggy and their family in our prayers during this time. We are thankful for the dedicated leadership Bill offered churches throughout North Alabama. Peggy recently told a reporter that one of their earliest appointment required a bus ride and two mile walk to get to the church to preach on Sunday. Bill also had a heart for ministry with troubled youth. We are grateful for his life and ministry.”

Please remember the Hitt family in your prayers.
