Meet the Pastor
Pastor Willard E. Shelley, III is an anointed man of God. The mandate and assignment on his life is to preach and teach the generation of those who seek the face of God. Pastor Will accepted the Lord as his personal Savior in 2001 and his call to preach the Gospel in 2007. He has been in a stage of transformation through past experiences. His tests and trials have proven God's faithfulness over and over. His testimony has been built through success and failure, issues and deliverance, and the sustaining power of faith.
Over the years, his dedication to the things of God bears witness in his life today. As a choir member, chief armorbearer, and preacher, he is certainly well-versed in humility and patience. The joy of salvation is never far from his speech. Pastor Will served as the associate pastor of The River Of Life Church under the guidance of his spiritual mother, Pastor Kim A. Davis. On December 4, 2016 He was installed as Senior Pastor of The Well Full Gospel Baptist Church in Chester, PA. This Man of God has given and continues to give of himself to the community and to many young men. He is devoted to training and teaching biblical principles to be overcomers in all walks of life. He is a firm believer in reaching back to bring someone else along. He realizes that the favor on his life is not for him, but rather for those who do not know the Lord. He strives in his daily tasks to allow God to get the glory out of his life. His service is unto the Lord.
He is a native son of the city of Chester, PA. Pastor Will is the eldest child of Anna and Willard Jr. He is the husband of Desireé Michelle, father, grandfather, mentor, and teacher. More importantly, he trusts that "The will of God will never take you where the grace of God will not protect you."
