Our Pastor's Biography

Our Pastor

Bill Hoopes entered our TBCC community as lead pastor in January, 2023, and brought with him a fresh perspective for, and dedication to, the mission of our church. He is passionate about connecting people to a life-changing relationship with Jesus Christ and seeing them become all that God has intended. Bill carries a burden for prayer, a desire to help connect the Body of Christ in the Tampa Bay Area, and a longing to see revival sweep through our nation.

These burdens and desires are by no means new, but have been growing and maturing through every experience he has walked through since accepting Jesus while attending the University of South Florida. Bill has served as a pastor locally, a leader with the missions organization Youth With a Mission in the Netherlands, and was Community Pastor of Crossroads International Church in Amsterdam for a number of years. He has a BA in Religious Studies and an MBA in International Business.

Bill and his wife of 49 years, Eva, have four adult children and now enjoy the pleasure of numerous grandkids. Both of them are extremely blessed by becoming part of the TBCC family,

and the privilege of serving God among you!
