Rev. Bettye Holland Williams graduated from Oral Roberts University, holding a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Communications. She makes it known that she got her “burning” before she got her “learning”. She was licensed to preach the Gospel in 1995 and ordained by her pastor, Rev. Gregory Sutton, in 1996 at Jackson Memorial Baptist Church.
Rev. Holland was the founder of the B. J. Holland Institute of Ministry, established in 2002, making the Institute 16 years old. Men and women attend the Institute to gain more bible knowledge and get equipped for ministry. Over 1700 students have come through those doors.
Presently, she was a member of Hunter Hill 1st Missionary Baptist Church, Atlanta, Ga., where Rev. Christopher Wimberly is pastor.

In the Red Hat Organization, 3-L Chapter, she was voted Red Hatter of the Year, 2018-2019. Her sweet spirit and down to earth sense of humor causes people to be at ease in her presence.

The Concerned Black Clergy is the primary, proactive and principle-centered organization where the mission is to provide leadership, advocacy and service to the homeless, helpless and hopeless in our community.
