Alton R. Williams has served as Senior Pastor of World Overcomers Outreach Ministries Church in Memphis, Tennessee, since 1981. He has entered into a new dimension of ministry as one of the end-time Apostles that God is raising up around the world. He is a graduate of Rhema Bible Training Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma and is one of the 12 founding Fathers of the Full Gospel Church Fellowship of New Orleans, Louisiana.
One of the many functions and duties of the Apostle is to give correction to traditional, religious and erroneous teaching, release revelation into the earth, and defend truth and godliness at all cost. You will receive understanding for life's problems and circumstances.
Apostles have always used the vehicle of writing to release God's revelation into the earth. Apostle Williams has done just that in all his books. God has given him the gift of writing as a vehicle to establish correct doctrine for the Body of Christ. His books will confront error, immorality, false teaching, the occult, and the traditions of men.
Apostle Williams is committed to impacting the world by teaching God’s Word with simplicity for personal life application.
