Sammy Williams is a native of Goa, India. He studied at the Master’s College in Los Angeles, CA and earned a bachelor’s degree in Biblical Counseling. He also earned an M.Div from The Master’s Seminary, CA. He ministers in Goa, India as Pastor of Cornerstone Community Church and Dean of the Pastoral Training Seminary.
The Lord gave opportunity to plant Cornerstone Community Church in Goa in 2009, and Sammy has served as its teaching pastor since then. We now have over 50 adults meeting regularly for Sunday Worship where Sammy is currently preaching through a series on Hebrews. Cornerstone also functions as a demonstrable model of church planting for our seminary students, with some of the men serving as interns. The opportunities for ministry abound in Goa with a population of 4 million.
Another ministry that Sammy is involved in is the Pastoral Training Seminary. PTS was founded in July 2002 in Pune, India and in 2009 moved permanently to the state of Goa. This training center is associated with The Master’s Academy International with the goal of raising up skilled Indian expositors. Sammy is the dean and administrator at PTS and also teaches courses in Preaching, Hebrew, Theology and Biblical Counseling. To date (2019) we have graduated 90 men and seen about 50 church plants raised through their efforts.
Sammy is privileged to serve Christ through the unfailing support of his wife (Nicole) and their five children (Hannah, Caleb, Micah, Sarah, and Abigail).
