Pastor Shavez Samuel Williams was born in a traditional Christian family in the city of Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh, India. He grew up under intense circumstances facing many difficulties as his father was an alcoholic for more than 20 years. His mother being the only bread winner for the family most of the times brought him & his sisters up with great difficulty giving them the education needed & also brought them up in the ways of the Lord. He grew up seeing much violence in the house & learnt to just trust in the lord for everything from food to every provision necessary.
He finished his schooling & felt the Lord leading him to come into the full time ministry & serve God. He completed his Bible training from Kolkata (Formally named as Calcutta) India from the ‘Buntain Theological College’ after 4 years & found the Lord leading him to step into a ‘COMPLETE FAITH’ ministry trusting him for all. His wife who he met in the seminary started their journey of faith ministry facing many difficulties, rejections, despise, & unbelief by many who heard of their vision leading them to grow stronger in Him. He finally established the ‘Fountain Flow Evangelistic Ministries’ in February 1998’ which required him to travel & preach the Word through mass crusades, conferences, conventions & other media coverage, etc as God called him to be the ‘Evangelist’. Ever since then the Lord has taken him to lands & countries, preaching the Word with signs & wonders following.
It all started in the early part of February 1998 where God spoke to him while traveling on a train in a vision where he saw ‘fountains of living 'waters’ gushing out & seeping into all corners of the earth. This fountain had a never-ending flow started to flood every area of the globe. The Lord showed that the gospel, His Word would spring out of those who believe & He would multiply the fountain having many sources everywhere.
Since God has already called him to carry the ‘Evangelist’s calling, he then received a greater vision for a universal & a global one to come. His life has then on taken a drastic change towards the calling & the ministry. Thereafter, his endeavor has been to continue on the call to perseverance in the vision he possesses in reaching out to lives all around & see this fountain flood to all corners of the earth.
In January 2004 as he was waiting on the Lord God further gave him a great burden & felt the need to take on the responsibility as Pastor also along with the Evangelistic calling he carries & start a Church fellowship in the City of New Delhi, India which would further spring out to all neighboring areas. The ministry ultimately would go into the entire world establishing church fellowships worldwide. With much prayers & careful strategy on the 4th of April, 2004 the ‘Fountain Flow Christian Center’ came into existence with the 1st Sunday morning 'Worship Service' being conducted at Pastor Williams' living room at his residence with his family, his wife, 11 month old son, his sister in law & 4 of his friends who came to join in for the opening service.
Even after the fellowship had been started there was much discouragements & attacks that came in as a threat to shut down what God had started. As a result there were times when his family & he were the only ones sitting for the service making them feel like giving up. In spite of all odds he still continued to hold on to what God had promised & doggedly pressed on forward. After much waiting on the Lord in fasting & prayers for months, the breakthrough started with God providing them a bigger place of Worship in a school building. Careful planning & stress was laid on reaching out to young people who were un-churched & unbelievers & many started responding & committed themselves to the Lord in joined the Church seeing results, changes, signs, wonders & miracles taking place in their lives. Ever since then the fellowship has been steadily growing month by month with new people visiting the Church each Sunday.
Pastor Shavez was further led to move to the United States in 2016 to launch the mega vision of planting 1200 churches across the globe. On the 3rd September 2016, Fountain Flow Christian Center Center was launched in San Diego, California and thus began the full thrust to plant churches across the world. As of now there are 65 Fountain Flow Ministries Churches around the world.
