Pastor Will received his ministerial and theological training at Oakwood College (now Oakwood University) in Huntsville, AL. He has been a minister for over 35 years.
He began his ministry in October of 1986 when Elder Meade Van Putten, president of the Allegheny East Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, gave him a call to that field at the Sharon Temple Seventh-day Adventist Church in the city of Wilmington, DE where Pastor Bill Hall was the senior pastor and an excellent mentor. The late Elder William C. Scales Jr. (former Ministerial Director for the North American Division) was very instrumental in helping him get into the ministry. Pastor Will worked with Elder Scales as a Bible instructor in several city-wide evangelistic meetings.
Pastor Will is a specialist and expert at doing one-on-one Bible studies and small groups in leading people to Christ and preparing them for baptism. God blessed Pastor Will to baptize more than 1,200 souls during the years of his ministry. In addition to that he has taught over 200 people how to be an effective soul winner and how to share their faith (see Testimonials).
Currently, Pastor Will has his own ministry called, Lifting As We Climb. He is the author of the book, Lifting As We Climb, a ‘how to’ book on effective witnessing, how to give an effective Bible study and how to handle objections. And he also produced his own Bible study lesson series, Lifting As We Climb Teacher’s Guide and Student Workbook.
