BISHOP Sonny E. Williams was given a new mandate to head the Pentecostal Assemblies of the West Indies Intl. (PAWI) when he was re-elected as General Bishop during their May 15-18 Biennial General Conference, held in Trinidad and Tobago.

A release from PAWI said the conference which was held under the theme: “Certainty in Uncertain Times: Progressing to Wholeness” was the first to be held virtually, due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The general conference, which saw a registration of over 400 participants, is the highest decision-making body of the Organization and Bishop Williams received 91% of the votes cast.

At the conference Bishop Williams also presented the way forward for PAWI in vision casting as well as a strategic plan.

The focus of the organization is on church health. He highlighted that the building of healthy churches is supported by the following seven pillars: healthy leaders; disciple making culture; balancing the supernatural power and strategic planning; reaching the digital world; church planting and missions; building a culture of honour and appreciation and constitutional reform. Bishop Williams was first elected as General Bishop in the 2018 General
Conference held in Tobago. He will serve a term of four years as the term of office was extended as a result of a constitutional review which was part of the business sessions of the conference.

Bishop Williams is the first General Bishop not resident in Trinidad and Tobago.
