My name is Patrick Williams currently resides in Tucson, AZ, where he is retired. In his adult life, he has always worked in a field where he was servicing the community. Served in the USAF as a Police Officer for 20 years, volunteer Firefighter, EMT for 8 years and now for the past 20 years he has been a nurse.
"I grew up in a semi-religious family but it was never a priority. Always a strong believer in GOD, but he was never in the forefront of my life. That changed around a couple years ago. I come to realize that my public service was a stepping stone to the encounters I had as a child. It was God teaching and preparing me for what I feel is His next plan for me and that is to serve our Lord in the Ministry. I feel truly blessed for every day for the gifts that He has given me and I humbly pray that my works will continue to glorify His word and His holy name.
Through Christian Leaders Institute, I have completed just another small step in my walk with Christ. Completing the Deacon Minister Ordination opened another avenue where I completed the Ordained Commissioned Minister course. The accomplishment of completing the course of study brings forth an increase of humbleness. I can only pray that the Lord finds me worthy and continue to guide me through my day to day walk in Christ. I have already witnessed how His calling in my life has changed me. The way I approach each day, the way I speak to each and everyone I meet and most important the way in which I live my life. As Colossians 4:6 reads, " Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone."
Patrick Williams is ordained as a Commissioned Minister with CLI in 2018!
