Reverend William McPherson was elected as our new pastor on January 26, 2014. He started preaching at Bliss as interim pastor in October 2013. He was born in Calgary, Alberta, Canada in 1935, married Verna Jean in 1960, and has a son, David, in Indiana, and a daughter, Heather, in Florida. Pastor McPherson attended Eastern Pentecostal Bible College, the University of Toronto, and Tyndale Theological Seminary where he graduated with a Masters degree in Theological Studies. He was ordained in 1961 at the Michigan District of the Assemblies of God.

His ministry includes 7 years as an itinerant evangelist, 41 years in pastorates, 15 years as a teacher, 3 years as Dean of students, 1 year as a Youth Director, 4 years as a Presbyter, and 3 years on a Teen Challenge Board.

We are delighted that he has accepted the ministry at Bliss Four Corners Congregational, and look forward to his sermons every Sunday. Pastor McPherson states, “It is our delight to serve as pastor of historic Bliss Church in Tiverton. We invite you to join us in spreading the influence of the person and redemptive work of Jesus Christ.”
