5 Questions With Bill Harritt

What has changed in your life since you left Southwood 12 years ago?

Well, a lot actually. Back in July of 2009 I was about a month away from leaving Southwood to head to Covenant Seminary in St Louis when this beautiful, amazing, and brilliant girl from Memphis said she would go on a date with me. Little did I know that 12 years later we would return to Huntsville and Southwood married and with 2 kids in tow. Janet is a fitness instructor and personal trainer and she is more than I deserve as a wife and partner in ministry. My daughter, Janet (3rd Grade), and my son, William (1st Grade), are both learning all about Southwood and Huntsville.

What does your family enjoy doing together?

Recently we have been playing lots of games together like Uno, etc, but sometimes we will do a night of Nintendo Switch games as a family.

What is your heart for the youth and families of Southwood and Huntsville?

My desire is for our students to see that Jesus and His Word are what they should build their entire lives upon. My heart for the students that we get to shepherd is to see them be life-long disciples of Jesus Christ and not just attenders of a youth group in their Middle School and High School years. I hope that our students see that they are not the Church in waiting but they are the Church now.

How can we be praying for you as you get settled into your new role?

Would you be praying for us as we start the school year, High-life, and for our family as we acclimate to our home in Huntsville.
