Darryl Arnez (D.A.) Williams, son of pioneer radio personality Kae Williams and Viola Williams was born and raised in Philadelphia, Pa. After entering the U.S. Air force, he was stationed at Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Fairborn, OH. Upon serving his enlistment, he remained in Dayton where he married, raised his children, and became actively involved in ministry.
He attended Wright State University where he earned a Bachelor of Arts in Communication. He also studied Leadership Development at Walden University before transferring to United Theological Seminary where he earned his Master of Divinity in Church Renewal with a emphasis on Global Charismatic Studies.
His journey with God began at the age of 12 with the passing away of his mother. He recalls praying to God with these words, “God I do not know who you are, but I believe that you exist. My prayer is that before I die, you reveal yourself to me.” He now traces the hand of God from prayer forward, leading him to saving faith in Jesus and an understanding of God’s purpose for his life.
While serving 20 years in an independent Charismatic congregation, he began exploring the movements of God throughout church history. Sensing the desire of God to re-ignite the flames of revival and restoration, he entered United Theological Seminary.
He has served in pastoral ministry for over 20 years before turning turning his attention to the end time harvest. Through years of study in the prophetic scriptures, the preparing of the bride has become driving passion.
Blending theological thought, humor, and prophetic insights, D.A. appeals to people across many ethnic and faith communities. He is committed to “making disciples of Jesus” who are equipped to share the message of the Kingdom of God accompanied with signs, wonders, and miracles.
He was reminded by his god-father, the late Bishop and legendary soul-singer Solomon Burke, that “the most important thing an individual can do, is to follow the call that God has placed on their life”. D.A. is committed to doing just that and is determined to develop the gifts and calling of God in every conceivable way to share the grace of God with a hungry world.
He is married to his wonderful wife Debra and together they have 5 children and 9 grandchildren.
D.A. Williams believes that we are living on the brink of another great movement of God and firmly believes what the Apostle Paul wrote “God wants to make known to all the glorious riches of the mystery among the nations, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.” (Col. 1:27)
