about us
Overseer Paulette Williams is the youngest of seven children to Dorothy Watson and Robert Daniel Watson, Sr., both of whom are deceased. She is a native of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and was educated in the Philadelphia Public Schools. She then attended Temple University and majored in Music Education with a concentration in Voice.
On August 5, 1978, she married Bishop Williams and moved to Richmond, Virginia. After the birth of her two children, she enrolled at Virginia Commonwealth University and received her Bachelor of Music Education degree. She was employed with the Chesterfield County Public School system for twelve years as a music teacher and four years as an Instructional Technology Integrator.  She began her graduate studies in Administration & Supervision at George Washington University and later attended Grand Canyon University to complete her graduate studies in Education with an emphasis in Technology.
Overseer Williams journeyed with her husband to Lynchburg, Virginia, to start their ministry work at New Birth ICM.  She returned to the public school system and completed her 31 years of teaching in the Amherst County Public Schools. She is now the technical director for Next Step Associates, LLC, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Her Christian experience began at St. Paul Holy Church, under the pastorate of the late Elder Lee Vanner Pugh in Philadelphia, PA. She worked faithfully in the ministry as a Sunday school teacher, secretary, and a member of the young adult choir. When she moved to Richmond, she continued her love for ministry at  Jerusalem Holy Church and New Jerusalem ICM. She served as a youth leader, choir director for the Chamblin Concert Ensemble, Senior Choir & Mass Choir, praise & worship team member,  and the women’s ministry. She also assisted with the new member’s class at New Jerusalem ICM. 
In 2003, she was ordained as an Elder, and in 2016, she was appointed  Overseer.
Bishop and Overseer Williams are blessed with two children, Gavin and Casie; daughter-in-law, Cyndi, who will always be in our memories; and grandson, Grayson.
