Featured Speaker

Bill Keresoma is no stranger to Monterey Bay Academy. Not only did he graduate with the Class of 1970 but he returned to MBA in 1994 and served for two years as our senior pastor before stepping into the position of principal from 1996 to 2005. Upon leaving MBA in 2005, Bill served as associate superintendent for schools in the Southeastern California Conference until 2011. He is currently the Superintendent of Education for Northern California Conference.

Bill has worked within the Seventh-day Adventist church for 40 years. During his career he has served as youth pastor at the La Mesa Church in the San Diego area, teacher, counselor, and vice principal at San Diego Academy, Dean of Men at Pacific Union College, and youth pastor at Napa Community SDA Church where he was ordained in 1989. Regardless of where God has led Bill during his 40 years of service, MBA has always held a very special place in his heart, a place he continues to pray for every day . . .
