Bill Themelaras

Bill Themelaras is a dynamic speaker and worship artist.  He is the Lead Pastor of Oasis City Church, a new church plant in Westerville, OH. It's a multiracial community with an atmosphere of God's presence, healing, joy and engaging music.

His ministry is filled with prophetic moments of worship and teaching which allows each event to be a unique experience.

Keep Me is a collection of songs written during different emotional experiences with the Lord. It was produced by best selling recording artist and producer, Kevin Prosch. Its prophetic sound creates a tunnel of worship that propels you to a deep place. The song Keep Me is dedicated to Bill's late father whose death was a result of the Persian Gulf War. 

Bill and his family were members of Covenant Church of Pittsburgh pastored by Bishop Joseph and Pastor Barbara Garlington. He served for 7 years as an Elder, Associate Pastor and one of the worship leaders and was responsible for several monthly worship services including prophetic and intercession meetings.

Bill Themelaras was born and raised in the Wheeling, WV area. Though he was a product of a broken home, he was determined to find God's plan for his life. Bill began his walk with God in the United Methodist Church at an early age. He became involved with youth mission organizations and began leading teams of youth in evangelism. He then attended a church in Glen Dale, WV where God began to expand his areas of ministry with youth and music. His gifting and commitment ultimately allowed him to serve as the Youth Pastor and Worship Pastor for over 8 years.  

Bill was the leader of the worship team JUDAH from 1995-2004, which traveled and recorded two live albums. Their first recording River Ablaze, released September 1998, is a vibrant live project. It has many popular songs as well as a few originals. JUDAH's second recording A People Possessed was released in November 2000. It was also recorded live with international worship leader, Georgian Banov as a special guest artist. It contains much spontaneous music which was unrehearsed and created during worship.

Bill continues to serve this generation both as a speaker and worship artist. He happily married to his wife, Lynne for the past nineteen years and is the proud father of his daughters, Nia and Skylar and his son, Cullen.
