Hyveth Williams

Hyveth Williams has the distinction of being the first black American woman to pastor a Seventh-day Adventist Church. Williams is the senior pastor of the Campus Hill Adventist Church in Loma Linda.Pastor Williams earned a Doctorate of Ministry degree from Boston University School of Theology. She is an adjunct professor in the Loma Linda University School of Religion.

Williams, like many other high-profile Adventists, had a rather dramatic conversion experience. A one-time atheist, drinker, smoker, radio personality, political exec. and ...oh ya, I already said atheist, she became a Seventh-day Adventist, and from there it was a matter of time before she would end up in ministry.

Hyveth Williams hails from Jamaica, and her roots are often evident in her energetic preaching and flamboyant fashion sense.
