Adding to the Family

Pastor Bill Magee

My name is Pastor Bill Magee, and I’m happy to say that I am the chaplain here at St. Mark Village. I was born and raised in Northeast Philadelphia.

After graduating from high school, I enlisted in the U.S. Navy where I spent 14 years serving aboard three aircraft carriers as part of the carrier air group. In 1992, I was honorably discharged from the Navy and decided to focus on my education.

I went to Rowan University in New Jersey where I graduated with a degree in environmental biology. However, after some soul-searching, I decided on another path and attended the Lutheran Seminary in Philadelphia. I graduated from seminary in 2000 and I took the call to St. Matthias Lutheran Church in Clearwater where I spent the next 14 years serving my community.

It was a little over a month ago when I took another call… to St. Mark Village. From the moment I arrived, I felt the warmth and love here. There is no denying this is a special place and I couldn’t be happier with my new St. Mark Village family.

When I am not at the Village, I am enjoying time with my wife of 26 years, Stacy and our three kids, Victoria, Billy, and Shawn. We currently live in Palm Harbor.
