In addition to being a former minister for the Glenpool congregation, Bill Hamrick served for fifteen years as Executive Director of Turley Children’s Home (now Hope Harbor), and then as Church Relations Director. Bill began regular work in Tulsa County prison systems in 2007, teaching three classes weekly at David L. Moss Center (Tulsa County Jail), and weekly at Dick Conner Correctional Center in Hominy. His material included the Faith & Character program in the Medium Security Unit and classes in the Minimum Security Unit. Bill taught over two-hundred and fifty New Life Behavior correspondence students in 14 Department of Corrections facilities across Oklahoma. In 2019, Bill was honored with a transition from Prison Minister to Minister Emeritus. We are grateful for his work in prison ministry and for the wisdom he bestowed upon those under his teaching. He now resides in Texas with wife, Lenora and their children.
