When William Edward Dewberry was eighteen years old, he read through the Bible for the first time without any previous religious instruction. What he read converted him to Christ, and he was baptized. He attended Florida Christian College and later Abilene Christian College. He has been in some type of church ministry involving Christian education for the past sixty years. He has been married for fifty-nine years and has three children and five grandchildren. He is retired from AT&T and presently lives in St. Francis Retirement Village near Fort Worth, Texas.
