Jasper W. Williams, III is what’s on my birth certificate.  Lil Jasper is what my mama calls me. Thirdum is what dad calls me.  Jay is what family calls me.  Pastor…, Pastor “J”…, Spiritual father…, “my covering”…, Even “Bishop of my soul”…

Big bruh is reserved for those that I share a special bond with…, Friend…, “Doc”…, Young Elder…, Bishop…, Only 2 call me “Daddy”, and only one can call me Honey!

May I take a moment to introduce myself to you?!

My pedigree is distinguishable.  I come from a long line of preachers and church planters.  I’m 4th generation preacher.  Yes, I’m educated and seminary trained, but life, most especially the last 5 years as a church planter has given me badges of honors and degrees that could only be earned in the University of Life, from which you should never graduate.

You see, I am an ever re-enrolling student that just so happens to believe that God presents fresh and new opps for those who are willing and interested to discover something fresh about Him and the Kingdom daily!

I’m still discovering some of the treasures that lie in my spiritual heritage.  Each new one is a gem that ONLY Father could’ve given.

Play along with me…allow me to interview me!  Ok, here we go…

What drives me?

The lack of fulfillment.  Don’t get me wrong, I’ and I’ve even been happy along the way, but the urge for “Next” keeps calling me!

Have you ever done something, nailed it, played your heart out along the way and still know with a deep deep knowing that “there’s more?”  That’s me!

This is how God’s designed us.  You can trace it back to the Garden of Eden.  He created Adam and Eve with the need to be fulfilled.  A secret, fulfillment only comes from conquering a problem.

Where am I headed?

Knee jerk was a line from The Jeffersons!

But really I’d have to say forward!  Try this one on for size, I don’t mind failing, as long as I’m failing forward…can I get a witness!?

Know anything about Henry Ford, he blew it so many times, but if it weren’t for a “Get-Back-Up” in his spirit, we may not know what a car is!

Now, I haven’t always been as comfortable in my skin as I am now, but it is what it is.  I once heard it said, “You aren’t living if you’re not failing.”

What do I want from life?

Everything He has for me!  Nothing less…nothing more!

What motto do I live by?

I branded The Church  with my motto for this epoch of my life, which I think would make for a great epitaph

What are my top 3 most important things?

1st My walk with God.  NOTHING else works when this is off kilter, slightly or a lot.

2nd – My wife and kids.  I guess that’s a 2a and 2b.

3rd – My Kingdom assignment.  The Church, me and Alecia’s 3rd child, is only part of that assignment.  Yes the organism The Church (you know that which has a FEIN), but the real church is people.  It’s the rich relationships that I’ve formed there with wonderful people that Father is using to show me where a portion of my assignment.

There seems to be an ever unveiling of the rest of this assignment.

Just a tad about me!
