“Bill has been a great resource and partner in the York Association’s (YAA) effort to unite in activities which strengthen all of us and our communities.

“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 experience that provided the insight needed to visualize success 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.”
