William Lightner praises education for facilitating a life of enlightenment

William Lightner

Many people credit their education with preparing them for adult life.

MARIETTA, GA, UNITED STATES, February 7, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Evangelist William Lightner, however, credits his own schooling with much more.

From a private Baptist school to continued education at Judson University, Lightner went on to find careers in the military, executive sales, financial advice, and on Wall Street.

Unfulfilled, Lightner made the decision to leave the rat race and instead travel the world serving God as an evangelist.

Lightner credits his time at Judson, a Christian liberal arts university located in Illinois, with his eventual path in life.

"Judson University was an outstanding college for me because of the higher education setting and their worship of God," he explains.

"The university made me into the man I am today," continues William Lightner. "Understanding the importance of personal relationships, but also my relationship with God was such a big part of my college experience."

Lightner would go on to graduate with honors, earning a Christian Religion and Philosophy Degree and two Bachelor of Arts degrees. He also boasts a Master of Arts degree in Divinity from Clarks Summit University in Northeast Pennsylvania.

After years of predominantly mainstream work, William Lightner turned to public speaking and joined Lay Witness Mission.

The mission teaches what it means to live as wholly engaged followers of Christ, inspired to listen to God and tell others around the world of his love.

Of their work, the Lay Witness Mission says, "The vision for lay witnesses began with Jesus Christ as He chose twelve ordinary men for His disciples to witness His life on earth and to be the first recipients of His teaching."

The mission continues, "The Lay Witness Mission of today is an extension of that first lay witness mission. It started in a Methodist prayer cell in the early 1970s and has grown into an inter-denominational ministry active across state lines as well as ministering in many other countries."

"The common goal of a Lay Witness Mission is to see Jesus lifted up and the Holy Spirit move in power and authority," the mission concludes.

"Lay Witness Mission holds a special place in my heart," says Lightner. "They got me started with speaking and traveling the world. I'm forever appreciative of the chance they gave me."

Alongside the mission, William Lightner has addressed vast crowds and personally supported hundreds of individuals across the globe in finding comfort in God.

Through his public speaking, Lightner preaches acknowledgment of fellowship and faith through prayer, in an effort to live a sounder life as a follower of Christ.

"I've enjoyed a life well lived, thanks to my education," he says. "I wouldn't change a thing."
