Lenz deeply touched the lives of many hurting people through his ministry, some of whom reached out on CTRCC's Facebook page to share their stories. Steven Worley wrote, "Bill led me to Christ in 2012. After my own suicide attempt and battle with addiction, Bill preached to me about the hope and forgiveness offered in Jesus. Without Bill, I might not be here either. You will be greatly missed. Although I never expressed how much I owed to you, I'm looking forward to telling you all about it one day when I join you in the presence of our beautiful savior."
