Meet Chaplain, Author Billy Zeoli

Billy Zeoli
Billy Zeoli is retired from co-chairmanship with Doug DeVos of Gospel Communications
International, the developer of the Bible Gateway and trained and hosted hundreds of evangelical
ministries on the World Wide Web beginning in 1995.

Previously he was President of Gospel Films, which produced hundreds of dramas and documentaries,
including Francis Schaeffer's 10-part series, "How Should We Then Live?"

He was White House chaplain under President Gerald R. Ford and was one of three people he confided
in regarding pardoning former President Nixon.

Billy also served as chaplain and spiritual advisor to many professional athletes and teams, including
Tom Landry and Roger Staubauch during their incredible run with the Dallas Cowboys. Bobby
Richardson of the New York Yankees remains a close friend.

Unabashedly as a Christian, He met in the Middle East with such important political figures as
Menachem Begin, Yasser Arafat, and Anwar Sadat.

He is writing a book that offers his insider's view of everything from President Ford's pardon of former
US President Richard Nixon to Islamic-Jewish-Christian relations, and from the role of faith in
professional sports to the connections between American entrepreneurialism and Christianity.

On my next blog, I will review a book of his that will be republished as an e-book “God’s Got a Better Idea.” This is a collection of prayers Billy wrote and sent to President Gerald Ford. More about this later.

Picture of Billy Zeoli came throught LinkedIn.

    What an encouragement!

    1. Sandi: I was impressed with his history. The prayers are very touching.

    2. Sandi: Thank you for stopping in.

  2. Thank you for telling us about this great man of God. It is refreshing to hear of his life and faith and courage during turbulent times. We need more men like him in this world today.

    1. Pam:
      Thank you for stopping in.This is a man who has done a lot for his Lord and for his nation. I would like to read the book he is working on.


I would be honored to hear what you think about this.
