Dr. Stanley A Williams
And the LORD answered me, and said, write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry. Habakkuk 2:2-3

Under his pastorate, Spring Hill is prospering. The church membership has begun to increase and continues to grow. With his vision we will reach the "unreachable", obtain the "unobtainable" and achieve the "unachievable" by knowing and trusting in God and His power to provide, so that we can be Living Examples of Jesus Christ.

At Spring Hill, God has blessed us with not only a Spiritual Leader but also a visionary in Dr. Williams. His ministry has taught us that, "For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead" James 2:26. He is truly a man of God that has a heart for God's people and knows the voice of God. He ministers the word of God with power and simplicity so that all that hear shall be able to receive. Dr. Williams encourages others seeking to win souls for the Kingdom of God. He teaches and equips God's children so that they may grow and mature in the ministry. He's known for saying, "Spring Hill FWB Church is moving and it's not backwards."
We pray for God's continued blessings at Spring Hill Free Will Baptist Church. To God be the glory for the great things He hath done!
