Billy Van Camp
Billy Van Camp | Senior Pastor
My name is Billy VanCamp and I am the Lead Pastor for HeartCry Church in Queen Creek, Arizona. God had been calling me into the ministry for many years. I was a successful business owner and decided to heed Gods calling and enter into the ministry 7 years ago by starting this church. I have completed my Diploma in Theology from Golden Gate Theological Seminary in May 2010.
As an Arizona native, I love hunting, ranching, roping and flying. I am blessed with a beautiful wife of 26 years, Lisa, and three wonderful children: Paige, Trey and Shea.
It is my ministry mission to be used by God to show His glory and teach men and women, boys and girls about Christ!
