Bill grew up in Garnett, Kansas where his family was active in church. At an early age he became a Christ-follower, and felt a call to ministry while in high school. He met his wife Marcia when they were both students at Manhattan Christian College in Kansas. Later, he also attended Creighton University and Hope International University. Over the years God has blessed them with four adult children, a son-in-law, and six grandchildren.
The Thorntons moved to downtown Lincoln in 2013, and for the past several years Bill taught on the faculty of Nebraska Christian College in Papillion. He joined the F Street Church staff in June 2020, and serves in the role of Teaching Pastor.
