Bishop Clarence R. Williams Jr.
Bishop Clarence R. Williams Jr. is senior pastor and founder of Living Word International Ministries located in Junction City, Kansas. Bishop Williams has been pastoring for more than 35 years, and has been used mightily by God to advance the Kingdom, reach the masses, and bring hope and restoration to individuals, families, and communities around the world.
Bishop Williams has traveled both domestically and abroad, encouraging pastors and leaders to restore their members and local communities to victorious and prosperous living through prayer, fasting, and discipleship. In keeping with the Vision of Living Word, which is to “Restore Kingdom Living and Make Disciples,” Bishop Williams has been mandated by God to meet the present and future needs of individuals, families, communities, and ultimately the nation, by providing effective 21st century ministries, programs, workshops and conferences. He believes God is calling pastors, leaders, and ministries worldwide to make preparations for a spiritual awakening and God-fearing community transformation like never before seen in their respective areas, and Living Word International Ministries is answering that call.
The Vision of Living Word International Ministries gave birth in June of 1992 in the basement of the Williams’ home with eight people and $76 in the bank. The ministry has now grown into the governing body of Living Word Covenant Fellowship comprising over 20 churches from across the nation, including Kansas, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia, and within the jurisdiction of four district Overseers. The Fellowship is steadily growing.
Bishop Clarence R. Williams Jr. credits all of his successes in the ministry wholly to prayer, and the leading and power of the Holy Spirit. Because he chose to be led by the Spirit, and admonished the people of God to do the same through relationship with God and spiritual warfare, the ministry has flourished into what it is today – a very strong, diverse, and reputable ministry of power, love and excellence. Moreover, the best is still yet to come!
