He graduated from A&M with a Bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering in 1985 and began a career that would soon take him back overseas for another 12 years. First to Venezuela where he met his wife of thirty years, Angelica. Then, with their children, their family moved to Hong Kong and Singapore. The Rigsby family relocated from Singapore to Brenham in 2005 when Bill started to experience the undeniable pull of the Holy Spirit in a different direction. After years of reading the primary texts of the world's major religions during his travels, he was led to realize that only one, the Bible, is complete in its truth - and it changed his life. It was at this point in 2004 that he says he stopped living the Christian faith he was born into and actively claimed it as his own. He then divested himself of all business interests and enrolled in seminary to learn more. Now a Master's level graduate of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary since 2019, Bill is dedicated to ministry for God's Kingdom.
Bill has a heart for people and tries to embody the teaching of Galations 6:2 of bearing our brother's burdens. He doesn't know a stranger and has a heart for helping others in need, especially those responding to the call that our Father places on us. Through Christian apologetics and Bible exposition, he feels called to disciple others in God's truth.
Angelica is a fitness instructor in Brenham and the five adult Rigsby kids are Danielle, Kristofer, David, Michelle, and Christina all of whom are established in life on their own. Danielle, Michelle, and Christina graduated from E&M, Kris from Baylor and David has a thriving farrier business here in Washington County. Bill's testimony is a clear manifestation of the movement of the Holy Spirit in his life.
