In Ephesians 4: 1, the Apostle Paul urges us to “…walk in a manner worthy of the calling you have been called,” and Reverend William D. Watley, Ph.D., has done that and more! It is with a humble heart and reverential esteem that Reverend William D. Watley, Ph.D., announces his retirement from active service after faithfully serving 60 years in ministry. Therefore, an exciting “Retirement Celebration” is being planned in his honor, Thursday, May 4, 2023 (Reception, 5:30 p.m., and Worship Service, Saint Philip AME Church – Atlanta, GA, 7:30 p.m., Bishop John R. Bryant, Proclaimer). Please save this date and time! For more information and to RSVP your attendance, please visit http://www.williamdwatleyministries.org.
