History of the Life Enrichment Ministerial Association:
The Life Enrichment Ministerial Association of Christian Churches and Ministries, was birthed out of a divine mandate given to its founder and president, Dr. Gwyneth Williams. Dr. Williams carried the call of God for an organization that would serve as a vital force in the Body of Christ for the training, equipping, and releasing of churches and ministries within God’s people.
To facilitate this effort towards equipping, God directed Dr. Williams to start a traveling ministry, Life Enrichment Incorporated, in 1984 and to begin ministering in a variety of churches and conferences throughout the world. The evangelical mantel upon Dr. Williams life is evident through her extensive writings on training short-term missionaries in the local church, training hundreds of missionary evangelists, and facilitating mission teams to thirty-three countries (many more than once) and five continents. Dr. Williams was the pastor and founder of The Azusa Mission—a daily inner city outreach in Seattle, Washington; and the Christian bookstore for pastors and leaders. The Azusa Mission transported the homeless from shelters every week to The Azusa Mission where they were provided with the Word of God, a hot meal, new clothes, and groceries. The homeless weren’t the only ones attracted to The Azusa Mission, but many local ministers and pastors called The Azusa Mission their home church. Out of the overwhelming community response, over 22 pastors and ministers were ordained by Life Enrichment Ministerial Association and today thousands of pastors, leaders and organizations have been positively impacted by Life Enrichment Ministries through Mentorship, Ordination, Licensure, Certification, Training and Consultation. And LEMA is ready to partner with you.
