Cedarville Stories Podcast: Gifted Networker Turns Passion Into Ministry

;

by Clem Boyd, Communication Content Manager

Bill Montgomery is Mr. Connections. It’s his ministry and his gift. The chief sales officer for 104.9 The River (WCVO-FM) in Gahanna, Ohio, and Cedarville adjunct broadcast and digital media professor loves to connect people who can help one another. Bill, a 1993 alumnus, saw the power of connections as a Cedarville undergrad when his professors brought alumni and broadcast media leaders to speak with students.

His networking skills have played a pivotal role in his career, finding advertisers who supported  Christian radio and its mission of delivering the Gospel over the airwaves.

Mr. Connections has applied his passion to benefit one of his favorite organizations, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA). He finds joy in helping others experience and then become supporters of FCA’s ministry of raising up athletes who share the hope found only in Christ.  

Bill especially loves helping his students discover the vast network of Cedarville alumni and supporters who desire to help them discover God’s direction in a career.

“When I meet somebody, my mind goes, ‘Who do I know that could use what this person does?’ and that automatically creates four or five other connections,” he offers in the podcast. “Some of my greatest days are when I take this person that I know and this person that I know, and they’ve never met, and I can put them together and they benefit.”
