Bishop Frank Williams, Jr.
For with God nothing is ever impossible and no word from God shall be without power or impossible of fulfillment.
Bishop Williams served in the United States Army for two years. Upon completion of his military service, he was employed as an Operating Room Technician at McGuire Veterans Hospital in Richmond, Virginia. In September of 1998, through the leading of God, he retired after thirty-three years of service to the federal government.
Having given his life to Christ as a teenager, Bishop Williams became a faithful member of Jerusalem Holy Church under the leadership of the late Bishop Annie Chamblin. He served as a junior deacon, choir member, soloist and driver for the pastor. In 1974, he was called to the ministry. After the death of Bishop Annie Chamblin, he continued to work faithfully in the ministry under the leadership of our Presiding Prelate, Chief Apostle Olive C. Brown and also traveled and ministered with the late Bishop James F. Brown, Jr.
During this period, he gave leadership to the following areas of ministry: Evangelist, Presiding Elder, Board of Directors of Mt. Sinai Holy Churches of America, Inc., and Home & Foreign Missionary Convention, as president.
In due time, God led Chief Apostle Olive C. Brown to become the founder and presiding prelate of the International Christian Ministries. Bishop Williams worked faithfully in this ministry and it was here that he was consecrated to the Bishopric on August 2, 1994. He also serves on the Board of Directors of the International Christian Ministries and is the founder of the Family, Youth and Community Wholeness Center of Lynchburg, Virginia.
He and his wife Overseer Paulette Williams in August founded and pastor New Birth ICM in Lynchburg, Virginia. New Birth’s mission is to serve to whole person through ministry, training, cultural and artistic endeavors, spiritual discipline and vibrant worship in a Christ centered environment. We are leading people in building effective, fulfilling, powerful and rewarding lives in Christ Jesus.
Bishop Williams and his wife, Overseer Paulette Williams are the proud parents of Gavin Lamont and Casie Nicole; a beautiful daughter-in-law, Cyndi; and our great grandson, Karson.
