Guest Bio

Dr. Billy Wilson is Uniting Spirit-Empowered Christians in 2015 EMPOWERING BELIEVERS

The Empowered21 Global Council is an esteemed group of international Christian leaders co-chaired by Dr. George Wood and Dr. Billy Wilson.  These leaders met in Los Angeles, CA in 2011, and in Orlando, FL in 2012  to discuss and give oversight to a series of 13 regional Empowered 21 leadership teams.  These teams are forming across the world to focus on crucial issue faced by the Spirit-empowered church.  “It’s the largest network for Pentecostal, charismatic Christianity,” says Billy. 
On May 20 – 25, 2015, all Spirit empowered Christians around the world are implored to join this historic Congress called Jerusalem 2015.  Billy believes it’s an affordable way to experience Jerusalem, sit under the gifting and anointing of Spirit-empowered pastors, speakers and leaders.  Speakers include: Reinhard Bonnke, Daniel Kolenda, Ron Luce, Christine Caine, Cindy Jacobs and others. “It’s Pentecost Sunday in the Church,” says Billy.  “We will be praying for a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit.” 

Much prayer has gone into the location of the 2015 global Congress.  “We feel like we are on the brink of a renewal in that part of the world.”  He says one of the areas where Christianity is growing is in Israel.  “I believe God has called us there to come alongside our brothers and sisters in the Holy Land to stand with them to say the only real answer of reaching the Middle East is with the power of the Holy Spirit.”   Billy reminds us about the call for believers as stated in Habakuk 2:14.  “For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea.”   Billy says, “The Holy Spirit desires to cover every place with the knowledge of the glory of God.” 


He says it is important for belivers to pass the baton to the next generation.  “How can we help young people connect with the Holy Spirt and be effective for Him?”  There are several areas believers need to focus on and will be covered extensively at the Congress:

  1. Integrity among leaders:  we need to be transparent and authentic;
  2. Spiritual fathers and mothers:  there is a need for people to come alongside the next generation and be their spiritual father and mother;
  3. Unity: believers needs to work together on world evangelization so that every person on earth has a chance to know Jesus.

In July 2013, Billy was elected as the fourth president of Oral Roberts University.  Dr. Wilson is recognized as a global influencer with unwavering ethics and strong business acumen who has a passion for building Spirit-empowered leaders to impact the world.
