C. R. Williams Ministries
First, I want to thank you for your interest in C R Williams Ministries. Secondly, as with anything that you are a part of, it is good to know who and what you are connecting to and with.
This ministry is not about a man or a ministry alone. CR Williams Ministries is a new chapter of a long running story of faith and obedience to God. This ministry was actually birthed in the desert of Saudi Arabia when God showed me that a ministry called Living Word would come forth. It was then that C R Williams ministry was also conceived. So, what you are becoming a part of is something that God has nurtured and sustained for nearly forty years and has now brought to fruition. My God given purpose has always been to "Share the Word of God and impart the vision to restore Kingdom Living and make disciples to millions of people from around the world – teaching, preaching, mentoring and training, seeking to IMPART, ENCOURAGE, and EMPOWER "Through mentorship and leadership training to develop the Warrior and Leader in You"."
From Humble Beginnings
When God began this work nearly forty years ago I had no idea where he was taking us. The ministry that is now blossoming began when me and my late dear wife Wanda decided that we were going to give God our all. For nearly forty years Wanda walked with me through this journey of faith and obedience unto God. It was not long before our two wonderful children Natalya and Clarence III (Champ) came along side us and now God has also established them and their spouses as pastors and leaders. God brought our family from Germany, where we had been given the privilege of pastoring a growing and thriving ministry, to Kansas. He revealed that it was here that He would make an Oasis for His people. It was in Salina, KS that Living Word began. Little did I realize then that C. R. Williams Ministries was taking shape in the spirit. In 2015 God called Wanda to Glory eternal. I went through a dark time in my life, but God was and is always faithful.
Not long after Wanda's transition God let me know that I still had much work to do and that I could not do it alone. This would begin a time of transition and change that has helped propel me to this point. God appointed and ordained my marriage to a wonderful woman named Melony. In this new season of my life God not only gave me a wonderful companion but He began to transition me (us) into a new phase of ministry. C. R. Williams Ministry is a part of that new phase.
Our Vision and Mission
C. R. Williams ministry is really a continuation of what God had already called me to do. This ministry serves as a tool for others to join with us on a local, national, and international level to take the Gospel to the ends of the earth. As stated before, My God given purpose has always been to "Share the Word of God and impart the vision to restore Kingdom Living and make disciples to millions of people from around the world – teaching, preaching, mentoring and training, seeking to IMPART, ENCOURAGE, and EMPOWER "Through mentorship and leadership training to develop the Warrior and Leader in You"."
This ministry allows us to go beyond the local community and fulfill the Great Commission. In Matthew 28: 18-20 it is recorded that "Jesus came and told his disciples, "I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. 19 Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. 20 Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age."" That is the heart of what this ministry does and what we would love for you to be a part of.
God has given me and Melony an endearing love for the lost, especially in some of the underdeveloped parts of the world where the Gospel is being resisted. God has already allowed us to go into Africa, Haiti, and other parts of the world. My great passion is for Haiti and its people and that is where a great deal of the focus is. By partnering with us you can help take the Gospel not only into Haiti but the far reaches of the earth. It is our desire to use every tool that God has made available to us in order to reach the lost. C. R. Williams Ministries is utilizing television, Internet, books, audio and video media, and in person conferences, and mission trips to spread the Gospel and empower God's people.
When you partner with C. R. Williams Ministries you are not just partnering with me and Melony, you are joining a cause and becoming part of a living, growing God-given vision.
