Dr. Bill Winston

 

    William (Bill) S. Winston is a visionary leader with an insightful awareness of what people need to succeed and how he can empower them for success. Born in Tuskegee, Alabama, Bill credits the strong community and spiritual influences that surrounded him while growing up for the bold determination to be successful and to help others succeed. As a young boy, he was influenced by the courageous examples and historic aviation accomplishments of the Tuskegee Airmen. As a young man, he attended the internationally known Tuskegee Institute (now Tuskegee University) where the spirit of invention and leadership permeated the environment.

    After graduating from Tuskegee Institute, Bill served for six years as a fighter pilot in the United States Air Force, where he received numerous awards and medals for his superior flying skills. His extraordinary achievement in aerial flight earned him The Distinguished Flying Cross, The Air Medal for performance in combat, and Squadron Top Gun Pilot competitions. After completing his military service, Bill joined the IBM Corporation as a marketing representative. His exceptional managerial and relational skills rapidly earned him several promotions within the organization. Before he resigned in 1985 to enter full-time ministry, he was a regional marketing manager in IBM’s Midwest Region and was responsible for more than $35 million in sales revenue per year.

    Today, Bill Winston is Founder and Pastor of Living Word Christian Center, a 15,000-member church located in Forest Park, Illinois. The church has a broad range of entities including a Bible Training Center, a School of Ministry and Missions, the Joseph Business School, the Forest Park Plaza shopping mall, Living Word Christian Academy, and many others. He also hosts the Believer’s Walk of Faith television and radio broadcast which reaches more than 80 million households nation-wide and overseas.

    Pastor Winston is also the Founder and Chairman of The Joseph Center® for Business Development, Chairman of the Board of New Covenant Community Bank (a bank presently in organization), and President of New Covenant Community Development Corporation whose mission is to revitalize communities spiritually and economically. He is married to Veronica and is the father of three children: Melody, Nicole, and David.
