About Shiloh Baptist Church of Orlando


Shiloh Baptist Church of Orlando as we know it today is over 100 years old and had very humble beginnings. God has richly blessed the church with eight pastors down through the years.

Shiloh's eighth and current Pastor, Reverend Derrick A. Williams, is a son of Shiloh who licensed to preach the Gospel in Jul 2005. He was ordained in July 2009 and served as Worship Leader before being called as pastor in July 2012. Pastor Williams has been an active member of Shiloh Baptist Church of Orlando since 1980. He served in many ministries capacities including Boy Scouts Master, President of the Brotherhood, Shiloh’s Men’s Chorus, Sunday School Teacher, Chair of building committee, Bible School Teacher and Minister of Shiloh Witness Force for Christ Evangelic Ministry.

In 1988, Pastor Williams was ordained as Servant-Deacon of Shiloh Baptist Church and later appointed as Chairman of the Deacons’ Ministry, where he served in this role for 14 years. In December 2005, Minister Williams accepted the call of God to preach the gospel and served as Minister of Edification.

Pastor Williams worked for the past 30+ years at Lockheed Martin as an engineer, with his most recent position as a Senior Engineering Manager.  When not ministering at home, at work, or at Shiloh, he ministers by example to those he encounters by his caring and gentle spirit. His earnest desire is that the people of God will learn how to "be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves".(James 1:22)

Under Pastor Williams’s leadership, God has truly shown His grace and favor within the congregation and community. God has added over 250 new member servants to the Church. God has blessed the congregation to fulfill and maintain all financial obligations even during the recent economic recession. In 2010, He prospered us to obtain additional property at a time when it was not affordable. Under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, He established, revitalized, and organized ministries to better meet the need of God’s peoples. In 2011, He initiated Shiloh’s Parking ministry as a means to generate additional Church revenue by supporting Downtown venue special event parking needs. In 2009, he established the “Answered Prayer Ministry” which currently consists of the Shiloh’s food pantry and clothes closet. Since inception, the pantry has distributed over 210,000 pounds  (105 tons) of food, blessing more than 4608 households within the Orlando community. The clothes closet has distributed over 80,220 articles of clothing within the community and beyond our state and internationally, as the need arise.  “To GOD BE THE GLORY!”

Pastor's Vision
To share the Word of God in a present-day, creative, credible, and caring way with a focus on bridging the generational gap so all can come to know Jesus Christ and grow to their full potential in Christ. We strive to provide a place of peace for all to encounter God, in love, worship, giftedness and encouragement.
