Guest Speaker - Dr. Carl Williamson

Dr. Carl A. Williamson serves as the Distinguished Andy T. Ritchie Chair for discipleship and church planting at Harding University. He trains people to be disciples of Jesus who make disciples of Jesus who plant churches. Carl fell in love with the mission of God while growing up in Sweden where his parents were missionaries. He and his wife, Alicia, planted two churches in Central New Jersey and are active in training church planters. He is an expert in helping existing churches in disciple making. At Harding, he teaches classes on Discipleship, Spiritual Disciplines, and the Old Testament. Carl has a passion for the lost and believes that the lost can be found.

Carl will be encouraging and equipping us to better reach out and share the gospel with those we come in contact with every day.
