Bio for the Reverend Dr. Will Healy:

Pastor Will began his appointment as the Senior Pastor at Park Ave in August of 2013 and counts it a great privilege to serve a church committed to a vision of “active engagement with our urban neighborhood and world.”

  • He was educated at Bethel College and Seminary, ordained into the Gospel Ministry in 1983, and received his Doctor of Ministry Degree in Preaching from the Association of Chicago Theological Schools in 1996.
  • Pastor Will is married to Julie, retired from a fulfilling career as an elementary educator in the Elk River and Northfield public schools.  They are the parents of two adult children, daughter Nina and her husband Tim, and son Sam and his wife Aubrey.  Pastor Will and Julie are also over-the-moon about their four grandsons, Nathan, Kyler, Adam and Bowen.
  • In addition to his pastoral role, Pastor Will has served in a variety of leadership capacities and received numerous community service awards.  He recently completed an extended season of service as a member of the Board of Directors of Feed My Starving Children.
  • Finally, Pastor Will is a harmonica player of very little note and is likely unable to play at your next garden party.
