THE PARTURITION
According to the good pleasure of God’s will, on January 7, 1974, a child by the name of THE PARTURITION According to the good pleasure of God’s will, on January 7, 1974, a child by the name of William Hudson, III, was born to the proud parents, William and Patricia Hudson. Many satanic attempts were made trying to annihilate this infant, but God had the ultimate plan and purpose for his life.

THE PRODIGY
William grew up as a member of Zion Temple M. B. Church under the pastorate of Reverend F. D. Johnson. Around the tender age of 3, God began to deal with him in an unusual way. Yet not able to read or write, he began preaching from a picture bible as he listened to his sister, Tina read the bible stories to him. By the age of four, God filled him with the Holy Ghost and he began to speak in unknown tongues as the Holy Spirit gave him utterance. At the age of 8, (the number of new beginnings), God had a new beginning for William. He preached his first church sermon publicly.

THE PASTOR
Also at the age of 8, God impressed upon William to gather some of his friends together and began a church. In obedience to God, he got together with two of his neighbors and they began to hold services in his back yard. He ministered faithfully to his family and outside to his neighbors, and the Power of God was so great in those services that it drew the attention of everyone. People began to come and listen to them as they rendered praises unto the Lord. As the crowd began to increase, adults as well as children, they moved the services into the garage and from there to the basement. Yet being a member of Zion Temple, God continued this work as they held their services every Friday night. At the age of 11, he was licensed, at age 12 he was ordained to preach the Gospel by his pator, Reverend F. D. Johnson.

 In December 1990, he began full-time pastoring. The new edifice was located at 6907 South Halsted. In 2007, the ministry moved to a much larger facility at 944-58 W. 103rd Street, where services are currently being held. He is the BISHOP of Prayer and Faith Outreach Ministries.

THE PREPARATION
 In December 1995, Pastor Hudson graduated from Chicago State University with his Bachelor of Arts Degree in Speech. Although in June, 2000 he graduated from Northern Baptist Theological Seminary with his Mastrer of Divinity Degree, his plan is to get his Ph.D in Theology.
