Charlotte Immanuel Church of All Nations was founded by Apostle Brian Keith Williams out of Columbus, Ohio. Apostle Williams stated that “God sent him here to gather the lost sheep in the house of Israel” (Matthew 10:6). Apostle Williams declared that he heard the voice of God, and that the next move of God would take place in the city of Charlotte, North Carolina. Thereby, our slogan was birthed, “No More Church as Usual,” as a result of the gathering called, “The Holy Ghost Explosion”. Charlotte Immanuel Church of All Nations became a reality and the doors of the church were officially opened on March of 2004. Our first service was held at the 77 Corporate Business Park located at 3401-A St. Vardell Lane, Charlotte North Carolina.
Apostle Williams has served notably for more than 40 years in ministry as of 2016, with a host of accomplishments credited to his ministry, beginning at the age of 5 years old when he preached his first message. He was a Crusade Evangelist, accepting the call to the Pastorate in 1985. Apostle served 29 years as a Senior Pastor of All Nations in Columbus, OH. In 1998, Apostle Brian Keith Williams was consecrated to the Bishopric and served on the Apostolic Council to the Azuza Fellowship.
In 2009, Apostle Williams passed the mantle of pastoring Charlotte Immanuel Church of All Nations to Bishop Rick Williams.
