Connect Faith’s 2018 Memory Makers

By Betty Ann Graham, December 3, 2018

When seeking inspiration, we typically turn to a higher power. That holds true for these select individuals who proactively make a difference in the faith-based planning world by seeking out new opportunities through conferences, meetings and events with purpose. The results are often unforgettable experiences for their attendees. We’re proud to recognize these Memory Makers.

William A. Blue IV

Director, The Potter’s House International Pastoral Alliance

Arlington, Texas

What I do: I direct PHIPA for Bishop T.D. Jakes. I advise and counsel pastors in areas of need and plan retreats for the membership and training.

How I got here: I was recommended to Bishop Jakes because of work with Promise Keepers, a large national men’s ministry famous in the 1990s. I was the Northwest regional director assisting in training large numbers of men and assisting in the pro football-size stadium gathering of men. I started working for PHIPA in 1999.

Greatest career accomplishments: I developed, established, planned and implemented the first PHIPA retreat in 2002, which is now held biennially. I also served and retired from the United States Army.

Impressive stats: I have increased the PHIPA retreat every year while halving the budget.

What I am working on: The Potter’s House is a cutting-edge ministry, and we work to get our PHIPA pastors continually ready to be the 21st-century pastors they are called to be. We work to demonstrate the use of technology and how to remain relative in the faith-based community.
