Dr. John Williams, Vice-Chairman
Dr. Williams was born New Year’s Day 1955 in Okinawa, Japan to an Air Force family. After several stateside assignments, his family made their final move in 1962 landing in Colorado which he would call home until 1983. During that time, he would meet his future wife, Debbie, in their 6th grade Sunday School class which his father taught for many years. As it turns out Debbie’s father would become their High School youth group leader! On a leap of faith, both sets of parents would eventually grant consent and they were married in 1974 during their first year in college. They would welcome their first child, Sarah, in 1977 and their second, James, in 1979. After graduating with a Bachelor of Science from Colorado State University it was on to the University of Colorado School of Medicine graduating in 1983 and welcoming their third child Elisabeth. After graduation, Dr. Williams was commissioned in the United States Air Force and started his General Surgery residency training at Kessler AFB, Mississippi. In 1985 the family moved to northern California to continue residency training in Radiology at David Grant USAF Medical Center. During this time the family welcomed their fourth and final child, Mark, in 1987. After completing residency in 1989, the family moved to San Antonio, Texas for fellowship training in Interventional Radiology. The family then returned to California where Dr. Williams was named Chief of Interventional Radiology at his former training program and assistant clinical professor at University of California at Davis Medical Center. After completing his military commitment, he accepted a full-time faculty position at UC Davis. In 1995, the family moved for their final time to Georgia where Dr. Williams would join Quantum Radiology. He has served on the Board of Directors for his practice for the past 10 years.
Dr. Williams began his personal relationship with Jesus Christ in 1971 at a Young Life Camp in Colorado. Throughout both of their lives, he and Debbie have been involved in different aspects of ministry. They have had two of their children graduate from Dominion, Elisabeth who graduated in 2001 and Mark who graduated in 2005, both with honors. In 1999, Dr. Williams accepted a position on the Dominion Board of Trustees. He and Debbie are passionate about what God has done and continues to do at Dominion. They have been both honored and blessed to see young hearts changed and minds prepared to give an answer for the hope that lies within. It has truly been a joy for both of them to watch the Lord work through the tireless ministry and dedication of the faculty and staff to accomplish His plan in what He is directing at DCS.
