Founder Bio

1 Thessalonians 5:12

Willie J. Binion, Jr., was called by Jesus Christ to preach the Gospel and he accepted the call during 2000 to soon be licensed to preach in 2001 by the AME Zion Church. However, he had little knowledge that in 2002, Jesus Christ would mandate him to found a community outreach ministry to teach Biblical Christ-Centered spiritual, moral and ethical principles to convict and convert nonbelievers and mature believers. Late in 2002, by the conviction and leading of the Holy Spirit, Will and his family (wife Vickie & children) resigned from the AME Zion Church to pursue the mandate.

Being inspired and led by the Lord to study to show himself approved unto God, Will pursued and attained further education with a Biblical Studies Certificate at Liberty University, Institute of Biblical Studies, Lynchburg, VA; received an A.S. degree in Allied Health (May 2002) and a B.S. degree in Health Services (May 2005) from Point Park University, Pittsburgh, PA. In addition, he received a Master of Arts in Liberal Studies degree with a concentration in Ethics, Ministry, and Leadership (May 2007) from Duquesne University, Pittsburgh, PA; likewise, finished his doctoral program (A.B.D.) and received an Ed.S. (Educational Specialist) degree from Walden University (April 2011). He also has been blessed to hold a full-time job for over 35 years at a company that manufactures lapping compound, during the academic accomplishments.

In addition, Willie J. Binion, Jr. met Pastor Reginald Walker – Founder/Pastor of Unity Christian Fellowship in Lynchburg, VA. in December 2008, both were divinely inspired to develop a fellowship.  As a result, both men of God extended the right hand of fellowship to one another (Galatians 2:9) and collaborated in 2010 to have a Christian Family Conference to be held in Martinsburg, WV.   Consequently, this has become an annual gathering for churches and individuals of all ages and ethnicity to come together and be steadfast in prayer, praise/worship, teaching and fellowship (Acts 2:42-47).

Today, Willie J. Binion, Jr., a servant of Jesus Christ and God the Father, ordained (2003) and commissioned into the office of apostleship (Romans 1:11, 11:13; 1 Corinthians 1:1, 9:2; Galatians 1:1, 2:8; Ephesians 1:1), by Jesus Christ and God the Father as a light bearer (revelatory teacher: Acts 13:47; I Corinthians 4:1) to the local church, and confirmed by the Council of Elders at “The Power Thereof” Christian Outreach Ministry, is presently functioning in his mandated apostolic ministry overseeing The Power Thereof Christian Outreach Ministry which fulfills “…built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief corner stone (Ephesians 2:20).”
