A worship leader and evangelist, William was born and raised in New Orleans. He has been a part of GBC since Hurricane Katrina (2005), having been displaced from Elysian Fields Avenue Baptist Church. Prior to joining the staff, he received a Bachelor of Music in Performance in December of 2014 from Southeastern Louisiana University, where he was called to teach and share the word of truth in a lost and perishing world. He has preached to friends, colleagues, atheists, agnostics, Mormons, Buddhists, Jehovah's witnesses, Hindus, and many more. He holds certificates in Theology (C.A.R.M.), Christian Apologetics (Biola University), and will pursue graduate studies at the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary and Northwestern Seminary respectively. He is thankful for God's loving redemption and is excited to serve at Gentilly and make disciples of Christ.
For He yearns jealously after the spirit He created to dwell in you." James 4:5
