Bill Themelaras is a dynamic worship leader whose prophetic gifting creates moments of intimacy and joy with the Father. He seeks God's heart and desire during each moment, which allows each event to be a unique experience. His newest album Keep Me is a collection of songs written during different emotional experiences with the Lord. It was produced by best selling recording artist and producer, Kevin Prosch. The song Keep Me is dedicated to Bill's late father whose death was a result of the Persian Gulf War. Bill was the leader of the worship team JUDAH from 1995-2004, which traveled much and recorded two live albums. Their first recording River Ablaze, released September 1998, is a vibrant live project. It has many popular songs as well as a few originals. JUDAH's second recording A People Possessed was released in November 2000. It was also recorded live with international worship leader, Georgian Banov as a special guest artist. It contains much 'spontaneous' music which was unrehearsed and created during worship. Along with his music career, Bill has been happily married to his wife Lynne for the past eight years and is the proud father of his daughter, Nia and his son, Cullen.

Bill's ministry is un-obstructive and unobtrusive; as a worship leader, he doesn't get into your way as you are seeking God's presence. His ministry is sort of "midwifery," if you will, he assists in what Father is already doing and shows you how to do it. As a pastor and worship leader, he frees me to do what I love best: and that's worship. Bishop Joseph L.

Bill is an enormous blessing! He is a very talented and anointed worship leader, a true servant with passion for God and high integrity. Georgian Banov Global Celebration The first time I worshipped with Bill I loved this man's spirit - he was so easy to flow with. As I spent more time with him I realized that not only is he very attuned to the Spirit, but he also has a depth of relationship with the Lord that has developed integrity and humility, as well as a prophetic knowing that he walks in. He is a great asset to the body of Christ not only in his Spirit-led ability to bring a group of people into the presence of God in worship, but also as a man of God - and I do not use that phrase lightly.
