In addition to being a pastor, Stephen Williams is also a motivational speaker for businesses and schools on the topic of servant leadership.
CALHOUN — Stephen Williams, lead pastor of Belmont Baptist Church, will be nominated for vice president of the Georgia Baptist Convention at the upcoming annual meeting.
Billy Godwin, senior pastor of Ephesus Baptist Church in Douglasville, announced his intentions to The Index to nominate Williams .
“Stephen is the son of an evangelist and passionate about pointing people to Jesus,” said Godwin. “The focus of his ministry at Belmont is making disciples through servant leadership.”
Godwin extolled Williams’ leadership as a current member of the GBC Executive Committee and Finance Committee. Furthermore, Williams has brought Belmont into an active role in missions.
“They are fully committed to missions in their community and the world through going and giving. They have planted a church in Guatemala and are currently planning to plant in New Mexico with the Navajo Nation.”
Belmont, Godwin noted, also gives 10 percent to the Cooperative Program each year.
“I have known and appreciated Stephen and his wife, Alicia, for many years. He is known as a solid, Christ-centered, effective preacher of the life-changing, infallible Word of God. He would serve well as one of our state vice presidents,” Godwin said.
Williams, a graduate of Luther Rice University who is currently pursuing a Doctor in Ministry from Anderson University in Anderson, S.C., became Belmont’s pastor in May 2016. In addition to serving as a pastor, Williams is also a frequent motivational speaker to businesses and in public schools to faculty, athletic teams, and students on the subject of servant leadership. He and his wife have been married since 2003 and have three daughters: Sarah, Raegan, and Kaitlyn.
