Jim and Gail Williams have been associated with the Luis Palau Evangelistic Association for over 45 years, and have been supported by Central Peninsula Church for over 31 years. They work out of the LPA corporate office in Portland, Oregon.
Jim is Vice President of the LPA and was on loan to Tyndale House Publishers, leading the translation team to produce a new Spanish-language translation of the Bible. After 10 years the NTV (Nueva Traducción Viviente) came out in May 2010. Gail had the role of systematizing the manuscripts and their styling, assuring faithfulness to the English text, and preparing the manuscripts for printing. Jim is now traveling to various parts of Latin America to introduce the NTV (Nueva Traducción Viviente) to pastors and leaders. In addition, Jim has been working with one of the Palau—New Generation Evangelists—Mike Silva, by speaking in Mike’s pastoral congresses and shepherding the Latin personal.
Jim has also authored 4 books in Spanish: Am I Prepared for Spiritual Warfare? Is Your Church turning into a Cult? Bitterness: The most Contagious of All Sins, and My Husband Is Not a Christian, What Do I Do? As well as numerous magazine articles
Jim’s next project, starting December 2014, is helping to develop and teach a one-day workshop on how to use the Study Bible. It will be out in May and accessible probably in August or September.
Jim and Gail have one son and four grandchildren.
