Reverend Parris Williams, Youth Minister
 
Parris Williams, Jr. was born in Chicago, Illinois. His grandparents, Eddie and Mary Williams, were active and instrumental in his spiritual growth and raised him in a Christian environment.  He accepted the call to preach the Gospel and licensed at the age of 27 on November 18, 2001, at Lilydale First Baptist Church. God graciously has allowed him the opportunity to minister on various levels. He has been an active associate minister for the past 12 years. While serving in that capacity, he was the Children’s Church Pastor for 7 of those years. Currently, he is the Youth Minister of Lilydale First Baptist Church. He is married to Maresa. They are the parents of three beautiful children Parris III, Correy and Faith.  He believes that God has called him to do as Matthew 28:19-20 instructs all believers to do. This is why he is devoted and dedicated to spreading the Word of God so it will convict the sinner and help believers in Christ.
