I accepted Christ at the age of 10 and was called to the ministry during my senior year at Northern Michigan University in Marquette, Michigan, but the time to pursue the calling was not to come until two years later. Upon graduation from Northern Michigan with a B.S. Degree in Marketing, and after having previously earned an Associate Degree in Business Administration from Gogebic Community College in Ironwood, Michigan; I was hired by the Woolworth Company to be an Assistant Manager in their Management Training Program. While working for Woolworths in Stevens Point, Wisconsin and attending First Assembly of God, I met my wife to be, Beth. One month after our wedding, I was transferred to the Woolworth store in Escanaba, Michigan. After living there a year and ministering in the local church in various capacities, the Lord clearly said, now is the time to pursue the calling to the ministry.
I resigned from Woolworths and Beth and I moved to Minneapolis, Minnesota where I enrolled at North Central Bible College and in 1978 graduated with a B.S. Degree in Pastoral Studies.
Immediately upon graduation, I became the Senior Pastor at New York Mills Assembly of God in New York Mills, Minnesota. In the eight years we served there; we saw people get saved, baptized in the Holy Spirit, and grow in maturity. The church grew greatly numerically which then led to a building program.
After eight years, the Lord then led us to be Senior Pastor at Whitewater Assembly of God in Whitewater, Wisconsin. For the next 12 years we served in that capacity and again saw souls saved, people baptized in the Holy Spirit and God touch lives in many wonderful ways. Also during that time, we either took or encouraged missions trips each year. We led missions trips and ministered in Jamaica twice, Mexico once, and several times in the inner cities of Chicago and Milwaukee.
After 20 years of pastoral ministry, the Lord called us to the ministry of an evangelist in 1998.
We have two grown children: Michael and Andrew.
My wife, Beth, is also ordained and has been blessed musically to sing, play the keyboard and piano, and to lead in worship.
"...Their focus...was on the baptism in the Holy Spirit...He explained the Pentecostal distinctive in a way that anyone could understand and identify with...I appreciate how he gave opportunity for people to accept Christ as Savior or rededicate their lives. When he invited people to come forward to receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit, the altars were filled, and many received...I look forward to having the Juoni's return to Oak Creek and gladly recommend their ministry. God has definitely anointed them and their ministry is a wonderful gift to the church..."

"We have had Bill and Beth Juoni minister in our churches for years...people respond to altar calls and those seeking the baptism of the Holy Spirit receive.

"...Several were filled or refilled with the Spirit. Everyone was challenged to greater spiritual maturity. The messages were clear and relevant...their ministry was like a breath of fresh air...I appreciated Bill's handling of the altar calls and altar services. The altar calls were specific and clear and always included something for everyone. Ministry around the altar was directed and purposeful without focusing on the evangelist. Ministry at the altar was clearly and effectively emphasized. The Juoni's pastoral heart was evident in their ministry here..."

Pastor Carroll Harrison - South Greenwood Assembly of God - Greenwood, SC -
"I am so grateful for the wonderful services we had...We were not disappointed. I wholeheartedly recommend these two true servants of the Lord.

(1) That the church would have the power of the early church - going forth in power seeing people come to Christ and signs, wonders, miracles and healings done in Jesus name.
(2) That the church would have the passion of the early church - a passion for God and a passion to reach the lost. One of the glaring characteristics of the early church was their passion for Christ. Christ was their life.
(3) That the church would have purity - endeavoring to live pure and holy before God, before eachother and before the world. Obviously the early church was not perfect, in fact most of the epistles were written to correct problems, but there was a keen realization that impurity would hinder what God wanted to do in their midst.
As the church goes forth in power, passion and purity proclaiming; Jesus saves, Jesus baptizes in the Holy Spirit, Jesus heals and Jesus is coming again - we will see the church be what Jesus intended it to be and accomplish what Jesus wanted it to accomplish.
The word evangelist means "messenger of good news". An evangelist fulfills this definition as he functions as; a preacher of the gospel, a soulwinner, a revivalist and one who helps equip the church for ministry.
His role in evangelism is three-fold: (1) to preach to motivate believers to be soulwinners (2) to equip believers for evangelism and (3) to preach to reach the lost for Christ.
His role in revival is three-fold: (1) to preach to show the need for revival;(2) to preach to show how to prepare for revival; and (3) to preach the Word and flow with the Holy Spirit during revival to sustain the revival. Revival then results in believers going out to reach the lost for Christ.
The evangelist is a co-laborer - coming alongside and working together with the pastor, the other ministry gifts and the congregation. All the ministry gifts were given "to perfect the saints for the work of the ministry" and all the ministry gifts have a part in this process - including evangelists.
Evangelist Lorne Digges was raised in a Christian home and was taught about serving the Lord since the day he was born. After being healed of leukemia at 4 years old(which he suffered from for about a year), Lorne knew that he was called to ministry service. During Lorne's illness, his mother; Charlotte; prayed the Hannah prayer: "Give me my son, and he will be in Your service all the days of his life." Growing up in church...
