Bill Swartz

Bill has over 30 years of ministry experience. Notably, he was the founding lead pastor of Baptist Church on Homedale when he helped merge Suburban Heights Baptist Church with First Baptist Church Klamath Falls. He currently serves as chaplain to the Civil Air Patrol Composite Squadron of the 173rd Fighter Wing at Kingsley Field in Klamath Falls, OR.

He is a military-endorsed chaplain with the North American Mission Board and holds a Master of Divinity from Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary (now Gateway Seminary).
