Dr. Richard William is currently the Director of History Maker International, professor at Florida Christian University, and President of History Makers University.
He was born and raised in Singapore, and at the age of 12, had a supernatural encounter with Jesus Christ and gave his life to follow Him.
After being miraculously saved from drowning in a river at age 16, he answered the call of God and began his training in ministry and missions. He started as a missionary in Hong Kong and the People's Republic of China before the Lord opened the doors for his biblical studies in the USA.
Dr. William travels and ministers extensively, preaching in crusades, leadership conferences, and churches in more than 30 nations. In his preaching ministry, his desire is to stir a deep hunger for God's presence and power, motivate towards local evangelism and international missions, and to see revival fire touch this generation.
Dr. William received his Associates in Theology from Christ for the Nations, his Bachelor's in Biblical Studies from Tyndale Theological Seminary, his Master’s in Missiology from Regent University, and his Doctorate of Divinity from Harvest Bible University. He is listed in 1992 "Who is Who” among Students in American Colleges and Universities for outstanding leadership qualities.
After completing his graduate studies, God sent his wife Debbie, a fellow missionary, and him to minister in West Malaysia. In 1998, Dr. William and his wife pioneered History Maker International Church in Singapore, a global ministry that leads youth revivals, crusades, and leadership conferences in over 40 countries across the world.
During his 35 years of ministry, God has led him to very unusual locations such as terrorist camps, closed communist and Muslim nations, and totally unreached regions across the world to spread the fire of God.
In 2012, Dr. William and his family were called to relocate to the USA to set a base here to spread the fire and glory of God to the nations in this region and the world. He currently lives in Tampa, Florida with his wife and two daughters, Destiny (25) and Mikayla (18).
