Pastor D. L. Williams is a native of Mobile, AL and is the first-born son of the three children born to Sheila Williams. He felt the call of God on his life at age 15, and officially began his preaching ministry at Aimwell Baptist Church, under his spiritual father, Dr. Michael E. Jackson. Williams is an alumnus of Alabama State University, where he earned his Bachelor of Science Degree in the field of education.
For several years he served as a school teacher in the public school system, teaching both elementary and middle school in Alabama, Georgia, and Virginia. Later, he matriculated to Samuel Dewitt Proctor School of Theology where he earned his Master of Divinity Degree in 2007. During his educational stint, he also earned the heart of his beautiful and classy queen, First Lady Precious Williams, whom he shares the honor and great blessing of parenting a loving & beautiful blended family.
In 2013, Pastor Williams was called by God, and elected by the membership of Piney Grove Baptist Church of Virginia Beach, VA., to serve as Senior Pastor. There, he proudly serves and seeks to lead the ministry into being a bible-based church that is fueled by vision and driven by purpose. It is his desire to exhaust himself for the ministry, while using every ounce God's anointing to transform lives, build disciples, impact the community, and lead the lost into the arms of our loving lord. It is ultimately his prayer, that wherever God opens a door for an opportunity to proclaim His word, all will be encouraged to live kingdom lives that both edify Christ and glorify God.
