Board of Trustees

Al Williams

Al Williams
Board of Trustees Chair

Growing up, Al Williams’ faith tradition was a blend of Baptist and Church of Christ Disciples of Christ. Many years ago, despite the old tapes that he had been fed over decades, he finally realized that God loved him just as he was with the help of St. John’s MCC. The concept of building and relying on a personal relationship with God, rather than on the “yokes of religion” helped Al understand the true meaning of following Christ. Al leads the Board of Trustees and is involved in other ministries.

This Stream began at approximately 10:00 AM EDT on Sunday, July 26th, 2020.

Rev. Paully Adams speaks on “Reclaiming the Power of Prayer” for St. John’s MCC’s Sunday Morning Worship.
