About Bishop Wellington Boone
"This is an incredible man of God. Every time I'm in the presence of this guy, I sense two things: This is a man who is truly a man of tremendous faith, and he's a man who is truly fearless." Bill McCartney, cofounder of Promise Keepers; former head coach, University of Colorado football team
Wellington Boone speaks to a generation with words that pierce to the heart of the matter. The power of his message comes from the depths of his commitment to Christ and to those he addresses." Ben Kinchlow, Former co-host, The 700 Club
As a nationally recognized platform speaker for Promise Keepers and the author of the best selling popular Christian books, Your Wife Is Not Your Momma, Breaking Through, My Journey With God and The Low Road to New Heights, Wellington Boone's primary goal is to lead people into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
Wellington Boone was ordained into ministry in 1973, the same year that he married his childhood sweetheart, Katheryn, whom he met in Germany during his high school years. He incorporated Living Word Evangelistic Association in approximately 1983, and later changed the name to Wellington Boone Ministries with the encouragement of his leaders. His first church that is still in existence and under his covering is Manna Christian Fellowship of Richmond, Virginia which was incorporated in 1985. The Fellowship of International Churches was started in 1994 when the founding pastors conferred on Pastor Boone the title of Bishop.
Bishop Wellington Boone's goal is to please God by a lifestyle of holiness and humility, to teach and preach who God is through study and revelation from the Word of God, and to reproduce himself through planting churches and making disciples. He relates to pastors and leaders as a father to his children. In time, they come of age as leaders themselves and plant their own churches and establish ministries.
Founded in 1986, Wellington Boone Ministries (WBM) was founded to reach people in every sphere of society, leading them into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
Through outreach ministries such as Making of Champions, Global Outreach Campus Ministries, and the Inner City Bible Society, WBM seeks to disciple the generation to a level of holiness and consecration that brings the healing power of unconditional love into every person, home, church, and community.
