Rev. Burton Williams has degrees in theology and family counseling. He pastored a church for thirty-eight years helping people find freedom from problems and nurturing them in a relationship with Jesus Christ. He was a missionary in the Philippines for five years as the director of the Institute in Basic Life Principles, an organization helping youth and families make choices and decisions based on universal non-optional principles of life. He also worked with the Department of Social Welfare of the Philippines directing a center for street youth and implementing a Character program for youth throughout the nation. He was a chaplain at the Connecticut State Hospital, counseling men and women struggling with personal issues (like alcohol and drug abuse) that had resulted in the personal and family breakdown. He volunteered at a Family Service Center in a center city, where those with troubled marriages came for help.
