"Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper."           (Psalm 1:1-3)

 

 

 

Reverend Derrick A. Williams has lived and served within the Orlando community for more than three decades. He worked for Lockheed Martin for more than thirty five years. He served as an Engineering Senior Manager and was recognized as one of the corporation’s Group Technical Staff (top 3% of engineering talent).  In 2003, Reverend Williams was the nominee for National Black Engineer of the Year.  He is listed as an Orlando YMCA Black Achiever and is a lifetime sponsor of the Boys and Girls Club of Southwest Orlando.

Reverend Williams has been an active member of Shiloh Baptist Church of Orlando (SBCO) since 1980. In 1988, he was ordained as Servant-Deacon of Shiloh Baptist Church and in 1992 appointed as Chairman of the Deacon's Ministry. In December 2005, Minister Williams accepted God's call to preach the gospel and served as Minister of Edification (role of Assistant Pastor) here at Shiloh.

Reverend Williams was ordained in July 2009 and was called as Senior Pastor of Shiloh Baptist Church of Orlando in July 2012. As he walks the path that God has set for him, he is given the energy, drive and compassion to serve God faithfully and effectively. God has wonderfully gifted, equipped, and positioned his ministry to serve families within the metropolitan Orlando area. His unwavering commitment and service to God's people has brought continued spiritual growth and has positively impacted the quality of life within this congregation and community.

His earnest desire is that the people of God will learn to be "doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves". (James 1:22). His gentle, kind and caring spirit allows him to minister by example to everyone he encounters.
