“Where there’s a Will, there’s a way” may just be a cliché to some, but for Will Rucker, it’s a way of life. Whether it’s as the founder and lead pastor of The Intersection Spiritual Community, the host of Compassionate Las Vegas’ podcast, American Lung Association’s Western Division Health Promotions Director, or as a Board Member of The Interfaith Council of Southern Nevada, Community Partners for Better Health, and the Nevada Minority Health and Equity Coalition, Will is deeply committed to transforming culture through compassion.
Born in the home of Motown, Detroit, MI, and a graduate of the world-renown Interlochen Arts Academy, Will expected his career to be centered in the fine and performing arts. Time has revealed that his artistic training was the foundation for his life’s work which he sums up as being a conduit and communicator. The empathy, understanding of interconnectedness, and ability to think ahead while being fully in the moment gained as a performer is what Will has utilized to be effective in his current endeavors. Will’s educational background includes undergraduate work in Biblical Studies and Pastoral Ministry, and his master’s degree is in Executive Leadership.
Currently, Will is working on his third book and its accompanying affirmative meditation soundtrack. He enjoys hiking the trails of Mt. Charleston, spending time with his husband and partner of 17 years, his family (especially his three tiny dogs), and discussing the philosophical implications raised by the Marvel Universe. Above all, Will aims to be an inspiration to all people by embodying the mantra, “Be the change.”
