LOUISVILLE—Doug Williams, pastor of preaching and teaching at Bullitt Lick Baptist Church in Shepherdsville, has been named as mission strategist with the Missions Mobilization team of the Kentucky Baptist Convention. He begins Jan. 1.
Williams will focus on challenging and assisting churches to develop a mission strategy to fulfill their Acts 1:8 responsibility, said Eric Allen, leader of Mission Mobilization team. He will also develop national and international partnerships while providing avenues of enlistment, training opportunities and deployment for churches and associations.
“My desire is to continue to invest in current and future generations for global gospel impact,” Williams said
The missions strategist said he envisions “the pastors of congregations equipping the people of the church to make disciples in their homes, neighborhoods, work places, schools and community.
“Disciple-making is for every believer, and pastors are given to prepare the church to carry out God’s plan for global impact,” he said.
Previously, Williams has served as associate pastor at Calvary Baptist Church in Oak Ridge, Tenn., and pastor of Camp Ground Baptist Church in Somerset.
A graduate of Clear Creek Baptist Bible College and Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, he anticipates receiving a doctorate from Southern in May.
