Derek Williams is a man with a heart for the world – the lost, lonely, hurting, hungry, and poor of this world. His passion to live out the Great Commission has been and is so evident to those of us privileged enough to have him in our lives. Thousands are better off today because Derek took Jesus at His word and shared God’s love with the uttermost parts of this earth. I commend to anyone and everyone Derek’s ministry.
Don Pape, Publisher, Trade Books, David C. Cook
Derek has a big heart for ministry. With years of experience in leading many in worship and compassion efforts – Derek is the real deal. He is a faithful servant with a desire to lead all to the throne of worship. I’m very grateful for knowing Derek and for enjoying the fruits of his labor. He is a gift to the Kingdom.
Tony Guerrero, Director of Creative Arts, Saddleback Church
Derek Williams is a man whose every heartbeat is ministry, worship and compassion, and he can back up his conclusions, ideas and vision with a wealth of practical personal and professional experiences. He brings a unique and seasoned voice to these topics and we’d all be wise to take notes.
Christopher Harris, music producer for artists such as CeCe Winans, Jaci Velasquez, 4Him, Anointed, dc Talk
While working with Derek on several music projects…I got the faith and energy to go the distance just from seeing a picture of him (on one of his many trips to the Philippines) with those beautiful kids that so desperately need our love and resources. Go Derek go…… run the race. I believe!
Jessica Wolstenholm, Sr. Literary Brand Manager, Creative Trust
Derek Williams is sure to become an important voice in the Church, challenging us all to bring our focus back to issues at the very core of the heart of Christ.
Dr. Mitchell D. Kruse, author of Restoration Road
Derek Williams weaves his heartbeat for worship, ministry, and compassion into the fabric of life that God has so uniquely designed for him. I have experienced first-hand how Derek aligns all three into everything that he does. Whether producing a worship concert in Africa, teaching emerging leaders at an internationally renowned conference, penning his heart on paper to his expecting audience, or reaching the poor who are attempting to survive in the dumps of Manila, Derek Williams lives and breathes worship, ministry, and compassion.
Dean Swartz, Senior Vice President, Far East Broadcasting Company
When the subject is compassion and a heart for outreach I would think of few names before Derek Williams. His focus is always on how he can affect the lives of those less fortunate by demonstrating God’s love and care for them.
