Pastor Eworth Williams
Eworth Quintel Williams, known as “Crazy Praise” because of his passionate praise and worship, was born in Georgetown, Guyana, South America. He was saved at the age of 12 and started preaching at the age of 15. He attended the Regional Training Programme and later Family of Faith College in Shawnee, Oklahoma, U.S.A. He has been the Youth Pastor at his local church in Georgetown for the past three years and an elder for the past year.
Over the years, he has preached in conferences and seminars locally and internationally. He is the founder of the EDGE Youth Conference which is an annual international youth conference held in Guyana. He is also a committed facilitator of ongoing youth initiatives in Guyana. He serves the Guyana Evangelical Fellowship as National Youth Coordinator and assumed the full-time role of Executive Director of EAC’s Caribbean Youth Network (EAC-CYNET) from January 01, 2010.
As a servant of God Eworth feels divine compulsion to minister comprehensively on the status of youth with regards to social and economic issues, being an example of the viability of the next generation. He is indeed passionate and sold out for the things of God and is definitely not an average conservative minister. He is desperate to see the fulfilment of God’s purpose in the lives of young people throughout the Caribbean and the world.
Eworth is married to Karlene and together they have one daughter, Arielle.
