Weston Williams has served as a lead pastor for many years, experiencing both setbacks and success. Over the past few months, he began to sense a restlessness in his heart concerning a solid vision for the future of his local church. Ultimately, Weston let go of his plans and embraced a new pathway of serving in ministry through an unplanned avenue.
You’ll enjoy listening to today’s conversation with Weston and Dale as he highlights the steps of faith that have allowed him to join the staff of WaterForGood.org. This ministry is making a big difference in the lives of so many people who have very little hope.

1) Sometimes the only way a young pastor can lead an older congregation is to simply love them in spite of the resistance they show. Deciding to serve his congregation through love allowed Weston to gain their trust over time.
2) It’s often been said, “You have to GIVE up to GO up.” Many times we discover the closed doors we are experiencing currently were necessary in order for us to discover an open door that we weren’t aware of.
3) There comes a time in our ministry leadership where we must be honest with ourselves concerning our vision for the future of the ministry we lead. It’s possible to “go out on top” if we are willing to lay down our desires in order to discover God’s bigger plan for us.
4) Jesus modeled for us how important it is to meet people’s needs before you attempt to share the Gospel with them. Providing something as life sustaining as clean water can open even the most cynical person to investigate the message of God’s love shown to us through Jesus.
