He was born August 4, 1928 to Charlie and Ida McCormack. Words could never describe the lives he touched during his 60 years in the ministry. He was the senior pastor for four churches in the area, and has been pastor of University Worship Center since 1980. He is the Founder and served as Headmaster of Trinity Heights Christian Academy, University Christian Prep and University Montessori School.

Billy was a mighty Christian soldier, educator and statesman. He championed all people, young and old, rich or poor, black or white, in the name of Christian love.
