Hi, I'm Bill Giovannetti
I'm a husband, dad, pastor, professor, and author.

I am also the founder of the Veritas School of Biblical Ministry. 

I've been helping people find and follow God for over 30 years. 

I've seen thousands of people saved. 

I've seen tens of thousands of people made whole, and set on a path of maturity and victory in the Lord. 

Along the way I've written over 20 books, 3 full length magazines, and hundreds of devotionals and articles. 

But you know, things were not always that way...
I am the son of a hard working, middle class Italian/Hillbilly family (I say that lovingly) and the product of a Chicago public school education (I say that proudly).

My upbringing in a small, fundamentalist church led me to an early decision to devote my life to God.

It wasn't until young adulthood that I began to appreciate how much God was devoted to me.

That discovery makes all the difference!
Fast Forward To Today
Surrounded by the high energy and vivid personalities of an urban jungle, I received a street-level education on human nature.

My early love of reading, my hunger for the Bible and theology, and his early struggles with legalism and self-worth form the foundation for my ministry.

GRACE and TRTUH mean everything to me!

I also have a deep love of Chicago sports teams and Chicago pizza.
I entered full-time ministry at age 20 as a children's and youth pastor. I served for eight years at the mother church of AWANA. Lance Latham was one of my mentors! 

Then I planted a church in Chicago and became its senior pastor.

During that sixteen-year ministry, I finished my seminary degree, urban ministry training, and my doctorate.
I met and married Margi, and started our family... two kids and  two dogs for now.

We packed up and headed to the snow-capped mountains and pristine lakes of northern California, where I serve as the senior pastor of Pathway Church.

Thus says the LORD: "Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, Let not the mighty man glory in his might, Nor let the rich man glory in his riches; But let him who glories glory in this, That he understands and knows Me, That I am the LORD, exercising lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness in the earth. For in these I delight," says the LORD.
~Jeremiah 9:23, 24
