Paul ministers as the senior pastor assisted by a staff of ministers and elders. He is an ordained minister of the Southern Baptist Convention with over forty years experience as pastor, teacher and evangelist. Pastor Willis uses his training in pastoral counseling and his rich experience in the field to make his Bible teaching reach the emotional and spiritual needs of the congregation.

He has taught in Full Gospel Businessmen’s conventions, in the School of Ministry of Gospel Retreat in Bradenton, Florida, on the 100 Huntley Street television program out of Toronto, Canada, in the Jesus Ohio seminars, The River Bible Institute and on the Cathedral’s own television broadcasts.

This ministry now has churches established throughout Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras and Nicaragua in Central America, and Colombia, South America. The headquarters of Ministries of HIS Glory is located in Guatemala under Rev. Ron Coffer and the Cathedral of HIS Glory. The Cathedral of HIS Glory also supports various short-term mission outreaches around the world.

    The heart of Dr. Willis’ ministry is to equip the body of Christ through pastoring and teaching to go out and evangelize the world. He supports local as well as national missions and encourages his parishioners to find their “mission field” and to “Go ye into all the world...” as the Lord leads!
