Jay Williams

Jay is a passionate and tireless 22-year-old advocate. A senior religion major and cheerleader at Oklahoma City University, a pastor in the methodist faith, and the newly appointed adoptive parent of his twin nephews Anthony and Andre; Jay has dedicated his life to serving.

 

Jay is a steadfast example of organizing for lasting structural change from within. He is a voice for centering LGBTQ equality in a faith that too often abandons LGBTQ people and an advocate for racial justice in a community that too often fails to uplift people of color. Because of his advocacy, Jay has been recognized as the Oklahoma Department of Mental Health 2019 Rising Star and Freedom Oklahoma’s 2019 Horizon Award recipient.

 

Jay is native to Wewoka, Oklahoma where he encountered the United Methodist Church and first explored God’s call to ordained ministry while a middle schooler at an United Methodist camp. Since—Jay has gone on to represented young people across Oklahoma on the conference, jurisdictional, and global level of our Church. After graduating undergrad, Jay hopes to attend seminary and further advocate for justice in the church and in the world.
