Description

Bill Loveless, Christ Is Life Ministries

Bill was born and raised in College Station, Texas and moved to Dallas, Texas in 1986. He was a commercial general contractor there for 25 years. Bill and his wife, Paige, have been married for 30 years.

Although he was saved at age 18, Bill didn’t understand Christ as his source for life until he was age 48. As a Christian for thirty years, Bill wandered in a wilderness of spiritual performance for God trying to earn His love, acceptance, and worth. He had severe internal struggles with fear, anxiety, and worry that overcame him for most of those thirty years. He would ask, “Where is this abundant life that the Lord promised in John 10:10? Why, after living the Christian life so long, am I still being defeated by the same sin patterns? Why am I not experiencing God’s peace and rest in the midst of adverse circumstances?”

Bill’s defeat in the Christian life got to a point that in 1998, while an elder at a former church, he told Paige that he wanted out of the Christian life. He was spiritually exhausted. In late 1998 Ian Thomas, founder of Torchbearers, was invited to his church to speak. The first words he shared were, “God never intended for you to live the life that only Christ can live in and through you.”

The Lord showed Bill through Ian Thomas’s words that he had been living much of his Christian life out of self-effort and self-sufficiency. The Lord also revealed to Bill that God has designed us to be His vessels through which His life and power would flow. He realized for the first time that God didn’t want to help us live the Christian life, but He actually wants to be our Source for living the Christian life.

This was such a transforming time for Bill that five months later God called Bill out of his business and eventually led him into full-time ministry with Exchanged Life Ministries Texas (ELMT) in Dallas. During his 2½ years with ELMT, Bill shared the Christ-life message in conferences and in follow-up discipleship curriculum. He was the conference coordinator for all the ELMT church conferences. While ministering in the churches, he recognized a growing need to partner with them on a continuing basis. He and Paige prayed for God’s will concerning his growing passion to be more involved with churches.
In September 2003 the Lord called him and Paige to form a ministry with the primary focus being to teach, develop curriculum, and disciple “multipliers” in the local church. In November 2003 he and Paige formed Christ Is Life Ministries. They moved to San Antonio in April 2004, and they are now working with over 50 churches around the country.

“It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me.”
Galatians 2:20
