Mike Williams has a message for this hour. In his book, Awaken the Mighty Men, Mike writes “I want to motivate men to involvement, not awareness.” Mike lives this out every year through hundreds of speaking engagements and his work as a missionary in the Dominican Republic. On October 29th, Mike Williams will move you to laughter and to action as we once again join together to IMPACT students and families through supporting Northwest Christian Schools.

Mike G. Williams is an author, speaker, comedian, and father. Since 1992 he has been making people laugh all over the world. Mike and his wife, Terica, and four children live in the Dominican Republic much of the year. Together they serve the Cups of Cold Water mission, working to rescue children, feed the hungry, and transform families.

“Mike was one of our most powerful (and hilarious) speakers ever. I’m so excited to have him back. I hope even more of the NWC family gets to hear him.”
-Jack Hancock, Headmaster

“Our table was rolling [with laughter] throughout the night. Mike helped me understand the NWC mission in a deeper way. Looking forward to hearing him again!”
-Pam Willey

“Don’t let the comedy misguide you…Mike Williams is the real deal. He is a true Christian warrior and a tremendous example for Christian men as one who is ‘fighting the good fight.’”
-Pastor Troy Burns
