Rev. Bill Jenkin III
President, Continental Baptist Missions
Bill Jenkin III and his wife Terri joined with Continental Baptist Missions as missionary church planters in 1983—their ties to the Mission, however, run much deeper. Both Bill and Terri came to know Christ through the ministry of a CBM mission church, and in a sense are second-generation missionaries themselves, following in the footsteps of their spiritual “parents.”
After joining the Mission, the Jenkins considered church planting in their home state of Montana, but God saw fit to lead them elsewhere. For over 21 years, by His grace, Bill and Terri had the privilege of establishing and nurturing four churches to graduation in the Sunshine State of Florida.
In the winter of 2004, Bill stepped into the newly created office of Vice President and Director of Church Relations for CBM, a position which gave him the opportunity to represent the Mission and share what God was doing through North American church planting efforts. In May of 2006, Rev. Jenkin accepted the call to become CBM’s sixth president and continues to serve in this capacity, ministering to the needs of CBM missionaries and the local church alike.
