has been a great resource and partner in the York Associations
(YAA) effort to unite in activities which strengthen all of us and our
communities. Bill is a pragmatic, savvy, spiritual leader with a good
project management background. These qualities enabled him to work with
us to develop a sound, realistic plan which we continue to implement.

Rev. Metzger led our Association in a two year visioning process
to strengthen the mutual ministry and mission among the thirty-three
churches of the York Association of the U.C.C. At all times, his leadership
was Christ-centered and biblically grounded. His presence instilled
trust and confidence. As a keen listener and observer, Bill is very
astute in identifying areas of growth. He was very supportive throughout
the process and from the very beginning, successful implementation was
a primary goal.
Rev. Cathy Sherry
York Association Council - COM Chair
It gives me a great deal of pleasure to be able to write some
very positive statements about the Renaissance Consulting Services.
These services are headed by the Rev. A. William Metzger. The York Association
of the Penn Central Conference of the United Church of Christ contracted
with Bill Metzger to conduct a very intense examination of our mission
and ministry. About fifteen churches took part in this process. The
results to date have been excellent. Bill Metzger inspired and guided
us into many visions for the present and the future. His leadership
was very spiritual and very dynamic in all of his presentations. He
communicated very well with both lay persons and clergy. Bill is
able to work with churches, non-profit organizations, and businesses.
Therefore, I would highly recommend the Renaissance Consulting Services
led by A. William Metzger. For me it was personally very educational
and gratifying to work with Bill.
The Rev. Henry W. Korinth
Pastor Emeritus, York Association of the UCC
Bill provided real value in four key areas in working with the
York PA Association of the United Church of Christ: credible, relevant

inspired, faith-based leadership that produced the required sense
of urgency support and optimism that gave us the confidence to
stay the course proven process which helped produce the meaningful
results we desired.
