Welcome Pastor William Klinke to the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Orange and to our Community

Pastor Will is originally from Port Angelas, Wash. He grew up in a religious family. His parents have been involved in building, teaching, missionaries, evangelism, pastoral work and chaplaincy.

He was a carpenter and builder before returning to college to pursue ministry. Pastor Klinke was a lay pastor in Denton and the Sherman/Denison area. He then went on to become a student pastor in Cleburne; an associate pastor and youth pastor in Killeen; and a district pastor in Fredericksburg, Texas and Kerrville. Klinke moved to Bridge City to pastor a church in Orange and Groves. The Groves church also has a Christian school.

Klinke graduated in 2004 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in religion from Southwestern Adventist University. He received his Masters of Divinity from Andrews University in 2010. He is also a certified teacher with the Southwestern Union of Seventh-day Adventist with endorsements in English, Spanish, History and Social Science.

He has been married for five years and counting to Adelaide Jones Klinke. They have a beautiful nine week old baby girl. He has a very real relationship with Jesus that has transformed him. For those who are willing, he would love to share how to be saved, experience in healing power of Jesus, and how to live a Christian life. May God use him so the Holy Spirit can tell of all of Orange County of the good news.
