Pastor Jherald Williams is the youngest of 4, to Bishop Cary G. Williams Sr. and Lady Linda Williams of Judah House of Praise in Stone Mountain, Ga. Pastor Jay is also a 3rd Generation Pastor as his maternal grandparents, the late Bishop Hardy L. Coleman and First Lady Annie L. Coleman also pastored Flatwood Grove Pentecostal Church in Blue Mountain, Ms and was the Presiding Bishop of The Global Pacific Diosese of The Church of The Living God before his passing in 2015.
Elder Williams knew from as early as the age of 5 that he would be a preacher like his dad. God brought it into fruition on a Youth Day at Faith Temple Ministries (Pastored by Carrie B. Harris) at the age of 15. He preached for a short time there after, but fully accepting his calling when he was 23, when he became a licensed minister. He contiued to study The Word of God under the tutelage of his dad.
In 2010 Pastor Jay became an ordained Elder in The Church of The Living God, under his late grandfather Bishop Hardy L. Coleman. He was also ordained Elder in The Church of God In Christ (COGIC) in 2015. This was also the year Pastor Jay was promoted to Assistant Pastor under his dad Bishop Cary G. Williams Sr. Working so closely to Bishop Williams, Pastor Jay learned over the years what it takes to not only be a good, preacher, and teacher of The Word of God, but also what it meant to become an efficient pastor.
By early Spring of 2018, after much prayer and fasting, Pastor Jay and First Lady Kay knew it was time to fulfill the calling on their lives to go into a new ministry of their own. In september of 2018, Pastor Jay and his family started holding worship services and The Peidmont Newton Hospital Chapel.
Pastor Jay, through empirical, spiritual and biblical experience and studies, teaches The Word of God in applicable form. This creates an environment for our spiritual and natural growth.
