Pastor William Couchenour

Pastor Bill grew up in the Midwest. He earned a Bachelor of Arts in Religion from Olivet Nazarene University. He was attending Nazarene Theological Seminary when he met his wife Rhonda (Robert).  They were married in April of 1989. Pastor Bill served congregations in Illinois and Michigan before moving to Sterling, Colorado. He was ordained in 1992 on the Michigan District.


They cherish great memories of each church they served.  Pastor enjoys family, driving the countryside - especially the mountains now, sports, sporting events, fishing and hunting. When growing up he wanted to be an astronaut, a professional football player, a coach, a veterinarian, a farmer, a taxidermist and then a warden, all the while the feeling in his mind was he would be a preacher. Rhonda enjoys working with children and recently has gained passions for prayer and woodworking.  Pastor’s son Jonathan recently graduated from Olivet Nazarene University and his son Will is a senior at Sterling High School. Pastor said “I am very happy to be serving at the Sterling Nazarene Church, it is amazing how God works, I belong here.”
