A biographical sketch
Dr. William P. (Bill) Grady was born and reared in New York City as a strict Roman Catholic. After attending the University of Delaware and Goldey Beacom Business College, he sold office equipment for three years before entering the airline industry as a marketing representative for British Airways.
Dr. Grady was saved and baptized in 1974 at the historic Marcus Hook Baptist Church in Lynwood, Pennsylvania, and called to preach later that year.
Having studied at Calvary Bible Institute and Philadelphia College of Bible, he enrolled in Hyles-Anderson College, earning a B.S. in Pastoral Theology and an M.Ed. in Christian Education. He received a D.D. from Anchor Baptist Bible College, and holds a Th.M. in English Bible from Baptist International School of Theology, and a Ph.D. in History from Baptist International Seminary.
He founded and pastored the Kootenai County Baptist Church in Post Falls, Idaho, from 1981 to 1986, at which time he returned to Hyles-Anderson College as a faculty member, continuing in that position through 1996.
