Apostle James W. Willie, III and Pastor Melinda Willie
The Apostle/Senior Pastor
APOSTLE JAMES W. WILLIE, III
In 1987, God spoke to a young man about starting a ministry that addressed the needs of lost souls. It was not a difficult ministry to begin, because he had a passion to attend to the needy due to his humble beginnings as a child in Pollocksville, North Carolina. For him, it was not a chore, but an honor to see the elderly warmed during the winter or to see a single mother and her kids with food on their table.
Apostle Willie and Pastor Melinda are the under- shepherds of OTTW and they are constantly developing a team of mature and spiritual Leaders, Ministers, Evangelists, Elders, Deacons, Teachers and others, whom God has entrusted to lead His people just as Paul, Timothy and Silas did in the Bible. When you meet them, you will understand why the citizens of Obedience to the Word love them dearly. They are true soldiers in God’s Army and have dedicated their lives to ministry.

Associate Pastor /Prophet
PASTOR MELINDA WILLIE
Over the years, there were numerous blessings and additions that God saw fit to give to Obedience to the Word, but none as significant as providing this body of citizens with the balance it needed. Given a Word of Prophecy that she would be an Esther to a King years ago in Pennsylvania, Pastor Melinda Willie has indeed been a fulfillment of that prophecy.
Pastor Melinda Willie, is a native of New Castle, Pennsylvania. She is the fifth child of seven children born to Mr. Roosevelt Currie and Ruth Currie Adams. She graduated from Brookfield High School in Brookfield, Ohio. She is a mother of two and the grandmother (MeMe) of five grandchildren.
Pastor Melinda was raised up in the Church of God In Christ. She knew there was a call on her life at an early age. In 1999, she moved to Durham, NC, where she met her husband, Apostle James W. Willie, III. It was in 2007 when she accepted the call to the ministry. Pastor Melinda Willie served as a minister for five years before accepting the call to be the associate pastor to Apostle Willie at Obedience to the Word Full Gospel Church.
Not only does she serve as a Pastor but also she operates in the prophetic for the body of Christ. With her gift as an authentic intercessor, she can often be found petitioning for the heavens to open over the lives of the people of God so that they can have easier access to the fulfilled promises. As the question was asked by David shall I pursue and the answer was PURSUE. For her the answer was the same and she has said yes LORD I will PURSUE.
