Farewell to a Faithful Servant
You probably don’t know the name Will Moneymaker—actually, that’s likely how he’d prefer to keep it. For more than eight years, Will has faithfully, quietly served the Lord behind the scenes in the Web Department at Grace to You.
While he has kept a low profile, his work has reached around the globe, touching every area of our online ministry. A full list of Will’s contributions would be impossible to create. It is no exaggeration to say that every page on this website—and there are thousands—has Will’s fingerprints all over it. Will has done everything from creating graphics to uploading sermons to developing the RSS feeds to editing audio and video to writing the e-Newsletter to expanding our reach through social media and much, much more. You name it; Will did it or had a hand in it. If you have been at all blessed by Grace to You through the Internet—whether by our website or on social media—you have directly benefited from Will’s ministry.
Today is Will’s last day at Grace to You, and we thought it appropriate to pull back the curtain just a little on this tireless, faithful servant of God. And while you shouldn’t notice any change in our ministry to you, his gracious, indomitable spirit will be sorely missed around our offices. Please feel free to express your thanks for Will’s ministry in the comments below.

I never knew you existed Will, actually I have never met any of you.
But by your great work, in loving service for our wonderful redeemer, I have been blessed.
Thank you Will.

Will, words fail to express the gratitude for your service and ministry, and the magnitude of your efforts for the kingdom.
Paul's words to Philemon come close: "I thank my God always, making mention of you in my prayers, because I hear of your love toward the Lord Jesus and toward all the saints; and I pray that the fellowship of your faith may become effective through the knowledge of every good thing which is in you for Christ's sake. For I have come to have much joy and comfort in your love, because the hearts of the saints have been refreshed through you, brother (vv. 4-7).

Will, we are going to miss your jack-of-all-trades skills immensely. I will always miss peering into your office to see your latest graphics or photography work. It is my deep hope that working across the hallway from an Aussie and next door to a Kiwi has not played a part in your decision to leave.

"In the same way the Spirit also helps our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groaning too deep for words; and He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He intercedes for the saints according to the will of God."
Mr. Moneymaker, I do not know you personally, but, as a witness for Christ who has been blessed beyond measure by this ministry, I offer up my prayers on your behalf in accord with the Spirit's intercession. May memories of you be a reminder that "the fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, and he who is wise wins souls". Through the blessing of this ministry, I am one soul among multitudes that has come to know and understand the Scripture rightly; wisdom leading to salvation through Christ Jesus. You sir, are worthy of the most sincere gratitude that can be offered. Thank you for your diligent labor pointing to the Glory of God.

GTY is the best organized, easiest to use Bible teaching resource on the web. In fact as resource websites go (any kind of resource), It is the best I have used. Thank you.

For the last years I have been blessed by the ministry of gty.org. I live in Mexico and there are a few ministries that expound the Scriptures faithfully. So it has been a joy for these time to receive the teaching of Dr. MacArthur through your website. Thank you Will for being a faithful instrument of our Sovereign Lord. May our God bless you richly!

Thank you, Will, for your service in a ministry that has truly stretched me as a Christian, helped me grow by leaps and bounds! I have been blessed by this ministry more than any other I have known. And now that I know about your extraordinary faithfulness to this extraordinary ministry, it explains a lot, a whole lot! I am grateful to you, dear brother. May God continue to bless you!

Thank you so much Will. I've been benefiting from GTY since the mid 1970s when I received Bible studies on cassettes through the mail. However, it was when the GTY website became available, and I understand you had a significant part in making that happen, that the abundant resources of GTY became just a click away. I've downloaded nearly all of the available messages, both MP3 and PDFs, which have been invaluable resources in our home Life Group ministry. And I'm sure I'm not the only one. You probably have little idea how many lives your faithfulness has affected. I wanted you to know how thankful I am for your expertise and service.

This site kept getting better and better over the years. The revamps and multiple search strategies are excellent. Especially, especially when you decided to make ALL of John's sermons available. Tell me that wasn't some kind of extraordinary feat. If your successor only fills your shoes half way, it'll still be a great site. Thank you for all you've done. And may you find a similar blessing in your next endeavor.

‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’ Thank you Will for serving us by serving our Lord Jesus Christ. This Web site has helped me so many times, and hours of my life have been invested here. I have learned so much and have passed what I have learned on to others, so thank you dear brother. May the Lord continue to bless you in all that you do for Him.

Thanks first and foremost for being a great friend.
Thanks for your incredible example as a Christian and a hard worker. Your work at GTY will be remembered, and you set the bar high so that what you started can continue.
Thanks for your faithful service at Grace Community Church. In particular the Gracelife Pulpit and Shepherds Conference. Those ministries rely heavily on volunteer labor. Your volunteer efforts in those ministries made a tremendous impact on the Church- not just our church, the the Church across the world.
I'm really looking forward to seeing what the Lord has next for you. I know you will be spending countless hours serving Him.

Will: This day has arrived far too quickly. After working closely with you for nearly five years, I am endlessly amazed by your ability to persevere through trial in joyful but honest way.
The grace of God is clearly evident in your life, and we are the beneficiaries. Thank you for all your patience, effort, and everything you've invested in this ministry. May the Lord strengthen and keep you and your family in this new season, and use you to further His kingdom for Christ's sake.

You're such a treasure there at GTY and dear friend to both me and my wife. Both Patricia and myself have had our lives so blessed by being fortunate to know you, Char and the 4 children & your devotion to The Lord in serving Him. We will feel the emptiness when you all drive off to your next destination to serve our Lord Jesus.

Will I can't thank you enough for all that you've done at GTY.
You've truly been a blessing to me and countless others, who have benefited greatly from this site. I can't seem to get enough, I'm always listening to sermons, reading the blogs, and other resources online. The Lord has richly blessed your ministry. I pray that your reward in heaven will be great, and that the Lord will continue to bless you in all that you do.

I had some trouble with my browser so I hope Denny won't mind me posting this as a reply to his comment.
Reading through all these comments, especially from those who know you, gives us a clear sense of your faith and warm spirit. We've all been touched by your dedication to the same level of excellence that is evident throughout this ministry. You've made all this material visually appealing and accessible to us, and that's no small thing in this age where sloppy work seems to be the norm. Well done, good and faithful servant. Go with the blessings of our Lord, and the love of His people.
Soli Deo Gloria

Our entire family owes so much to John MacArthur and his ministry. So now we also know you have been a personal part of that ministry and we are glad to take this opportunity to thank you as well. To have the recommendation of Pastor MacArthur is great praise indeed and assuredly was earned by your faithfulness in God's ministry.
We have yet to meet, but will see you someday in God's presence and look forward to that time of celebration.
May our God bless and keep you and your family. In Christ's name, Gloria, Susan, Elizabeth, Christopher, Katherine, John-John, Katy Rose, Anthony and the list goes on and on...thank you for your service~
