Pastor Bill, 66, passed away October 11, 2019. He was born in Peru, Indiana at Dukes Memorial Hospital to Kelly McCoy and Jewel Donathan McCoy. Pastor Bill was a graduate of Rhema Bible College in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
For over four decades, his greatest joy was serving faithfully in ministry alongside his devoted wife - together they touched countless lives with the love of Jesus. He served as Senior Pastor for over 20 years at Grace Assembly of God in Morehead, Kentucky and was Chi Alpha Campus Minister at Morehead State University for 10 years. Additionally, he was instrumental in establishing Teen Challenge in Kentucky. Most recently, Pastor Bill served as Senior Pastor at Gregory’s Chapel Assembly of God. He was deeply honored to spend the past 7 years loving his community and church family.
Pastor Bill had a love for history, nature, and being outdoors. He especially enjoyed hiking, camping, and hunting. He didn’t know a stranger and could effortlessly make just about anyone laugh. Most of all, he impacted people just by being himself.
He was preceded in death by his father, Kelly McCoy.
He is survived by his wife, Jessica McCoy; daughters, Faith McCoy, and Kristen Karnes and husband Brandon; mother, Jewel Geyer; brothers, Kenny McCoy, Ron McCoy; grandchildren, Ethan, Elijah, and Eva Karnes.
