Kyle Williams is finishing a master’s program in psychology at Central Washington University this spring, and together with his wife Katrina, Williams will turn his focus to global mission work. They have been endorsed to serve in partnership with the Baptist Community of Congo at the Pastoral Institute of Kikongo. Their four children will accompany them on this adventure.
In Kikongo, Williams will assist with the training of pastors and their spouses in theology, literacy and church and rural development. Prior to studying at Trinity, Williams spent 10 months in Nicaragua, where he worked with youth and in micro financing.
Williams’s education at Trinity has prepared him well both for graduate school and for his work in global missions. Mentorships with faculty like Dr. Betsi Little, Professor & Chair of Psychology, have been instrumental in cultivating his knowledge and passion for his field. Trinity also helped Williams define his own sense of vocation and call, deepening his desire to put his gifts and his faith into action in the world.
“To reach the point of wanting to go to Congo has not taken any special kind of courage other than to get serious about what Christ is serious about: sacrificial love and it starts small,” Williams said.
