At age 20, Willie George began an outreach with Sunday School buses and quickly learned how to hold the attention of rowdy, unchurched kids. In the decade that followed, his groundbreaking techniques brought him to national prominence as an authority on children's ministry. In 1982, he created a wildly successful, nationally broadcast kids television program, The Gospel Bill Show.
In spite of his success as a traveling minister, he longed to build a local church where youth and children's ministries would be showcased. Since 1987, Church on the Move in Tulsa, OK has been a leader in effective ministry for children and teenagers, with outreaches like Dry Gulch USA and Oneighty.
Today, the effectiveness of his vision is revealed in the amazing second-generation leadership team at Church on the Move. The same communicative skills that marked Willie George as a children's minister have positioned him as the Senior Pastor of one of America's most innovative churches.
Willie and Deleva George have four children and ten grandchildren.
