Bishop D.L. Williams is truly a man after God’s own heart. He was born in the sunny island of Jamaica, West Indies. As a teenager, Bishop Williams felt the call of the Lord on his life. Accordingly, he was soon baptized in the name of Jesus, and not many days hence, received the gift of the Holy Spirit.
Bishop Williams believes in the power of hard work and determination. After labouring with family in his native land as an Agriculturalist, the Lord allowed him to migrate to Canada in 1973. Once there, He was ordain as a Deacon and work in the office diligently.
In 1984, he was expectant with the vision of what would later be known as the Abiezer Pentecostal Church. Thus, from humble beginnings, Bishop Williams started his true ministry in the basement of his home. After a series of moves, over a number of years, in 1995 the church finally planted its roots at its current home on Milvan Drive in Toronto Ontario, Canada. The next year, under the leading of the Holy Spirit, Bishop Williams opened an in church spiritual hospital where many came in with various illnesses and were healed.
In 1996, Bishop Williams made his footprint on a continental stage. He began his cross boarder ministry preaching various cities in both Canada and the United States of America. On his first trip 26 souls were baptized and several received the gift of the Holy Spirit. God has truly blessed the man of God with the evidence of folks being filled with the gift of the Holy Spirit, baptisms and healing.
From the conception of The Abiezer Pentecostal Church until present day, Bishop D. L. Williams served the body of Christ in a humble way and has a rooted passion for “Kingdom Work”. In 2006 Bishop began his global ministry which includes outreach missions, Radio broadcasts and Web based sermons. A key milestone event in 2006, at the conception of his global ministry, was giving back to the community where he once lived. With 20 Abiezerite mission workers Bishop Williams travelled to his home Parish of St Ann Jamaica where he donated and personally delivered food, clothing, computers, love and the Word, to a community in need.
Bishop Williams has been married to his beautiful wife Evangelist Hyacinth Williams for over 37 years and has been blessed with an astonishing ten children and one adopted son. Furthermore, their genealogical branches will continue to flourish with eight, (and counting...), wonderful grandchildren.
With the support of his family, the congregation and the knowledge he has gained over the years, Bishop Williams has no other determination then to press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
