About WGS Ministries and Jonathan Williams
For 35 years Jonathan was a teaching pastor with Great Commission Churches where he also served on the National Leadership Council and the Doctrinal Ministry Committee. In 2012 he launched WGS Ministries which advances life change, builds a biblical worldview, and connects people to God’s Story.
He currently focuses on bringing the narrative of Scripture to the world in his story telling program Stories of the Master and his video, The Renewal of All Things.
With Stories of the Master, Jonathan takes on the role of storyteller, dramatizing the story of Christ and the stories he told for audiences around the world. He brings in cultural and historical details which Westerners often miss, but details which make the stories come alive.
The 80 stories trace the life of Christ from his birth to his enthronement at the right hand of God. These stories are currently heard in Albania, Kosovo, and Nepal in their native languages and worldwide in English on Trans World Radio. He is also in discussion with television executives to turn the stories into a dramatic television series.
In 2014, leaders at TWR asked Jonathan to create a presentation of the Gospel in story format. The result is The Renewal of All Things now in over 20 languages and distributed around the world.
Jonathan is an author of several books including The Women Jesus Loved, The Prodigal Son and His Prodigal Father, and Changing the Stories of the World. He is currently working on a new book called Sovereign Story.
He attended Calvary Bible College in Kansas City, Missouri and the University of Missouri in Kansas City where he majored in ancient history and graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Master of Arts in Biblical Studies from Trinity Seminary. He is currently working on his PhD in Biblical Studies.
He was married to his first wife, Dee, for 27 years, who is now with the Lord. They have three children and six grandchildren. God has blessed Jonathan with another wonderful wife, Kathleen, who also loves the Lord and His people. She is assists Jonathan with WGS, caters, and is a private practice social work therapist.
