Rommie L. Williams



Written 2001:

Elder Rommie Williams was born on March 26, 1947. His father was Deacon Buren Williams, and his mother is Sister Mattie Mullis Williams.

Elder Williams served in the United States Marines from October 1965 until October 1969. He served in active duty in Vietnam from October 1966 to November, 1967. On June 12, 1967, Elder Williams was wounded, being hit in the neck with rocket shrapnel. He was awarded a Purple Heart, a presidential citation, and was named an expert rifleman.

On November 12, 1967, Elder Williams married Sonya Moss. Elder Rom Kerley conducted the wedding ceremony. Sister Sonya has been his constant companion since that time. Their marriage has been blessed with three sons, Jason, Travis, and Eric. Brother Rommie felt pressed to join the church in June 1978. He and Sister Sonya offered themselves to Pleasant Grove Church at the same time on Saturday afternoon the second weekend in September, and Elder Joe C. Helms baptized them on the 2nd Sunday in September 1978.

All through his life, Elder Williams had felt the feeling that one day he would be a minister. Within a couple of months after joining the church this feeling became stronger. He related this burden to the church the second Saturday of September 1979. He spoke on the floor at conference for about one year. On the second weekend of October 1980, he was given the liberty to speak at any church in the Bear Creek Association. About October 1981, he was given the liberty to go outside of the Bear Creek, to any church with whom Pleasant Grove Church was in fellowship. In 1984, Gift Church, of the Little River Association, inCoats, NC wrote a letter to Pleasant Grove requesting Brother Rommie's ordination. He was ordained on Friday before the second Sunday in July 1984. Elder Williams went to work for the railroad in February 1970. He retired on disability in January 1997.

Brother Rommie served New Hope Church, and had standing Sunday appointments at Corinth, Lawyer Springs Church and Mountain Creek Church. He was loved and respected by the churches in the Bear Creek Association in North and South Carolina.

Elder Williams believed in the total depravity of man, and the absolute Sovereignty of God. He believed and preached that God elected a people before the foundation of the world, and that one day this world will come to an end, and that there will be a general judgment and resurrection of the dead, and that Jesus will come to take His elect family to their eternal home in Heaven. He believed that Jesus set up His church, and that we should add nothing to it nor take anything from it.
