Revd Dr Bill Goodman

Assistant Principal for St Peter's College and Director of Ongoing Ministerial Development

Revd DrBiography

Bill's role is to develop a wide, deep and imaginative programme for the ongoing ministerial and missional learning for lay ministers/leaders and clergy across the Diocese, working in partnership with the Principal of St Peter’s College and Director of Formation for Ministry.

Bill trained for ordination at St John’s College, Nottingham.  Since ordination he has spent twelve years in full-time (urban) parish ministry, plus a few more in rural settings part-time, all in the midlands and Yorkshire.  There were also six memorable years as a mission partner in Ethiopia, helping train church leaders.  Along the way, an appetite for wrestling with the bible has drawn him to Sheffield for further studies.  Bill has been working as the Ongoing Ministerial Development Officer in the Diocese of Lincoln since 2014.

Bill has been shaped by a rich mix of experiences.  He loves relaxing and exploring with his family, especially on bikes, boats or walking boots; also enjoying music, keeping up with the news, and discovering new possibilities.

Speaking about his new appointment, Bill said:

“This part of the world means a lot to us as a family.  Over the years, it’s helped foster my passion for learning, and for enabling others to learn.  So I’m looking forward to finding out what God is doing here now, and joining in with it.”
