More About Bill Wilson
With Bill Wilson the need has always been the call. For more than 10,000 children in the Brooklyn area, Bill Wilson and the ministry of Metro Church are a major source of love and encouragement.
Wilson was abandoned at age 14 by his alcoholic mother. Caring Christians rescued him and later helped him attend Southeastern College (Lakeland, Florida), where he earned degrees in Bible and theology. At age 19 Wilson started a Sunday school ministry in St. Petersburg, Florida. Because of the success of his bus ministry in Florida, he was invited by the Rev. Tommy Barnett to fortify and develop his church's bus ministry and Sunday school in Davenport, Iowa.
During his four years of service in Iowa, Wilson made trips to the Northeast and the most desperate parts of New York's ghettos. Compelled by the violence, poverty and hopelessness, he began a Sunday school in Brooklyn. Today he pastors Metro Church, a congregation of 11,000 children and 1,000 adults. Through weekly meetings and visits to each child's home, Wilson and his staff teach children the danger of drugs and violence. They present them with a sense of right and wrong and the hope of Jesus Christ.

great motivation Jan 4, 2007
The book is great inspiration for people who work with kids or if you are wanting to motivate people who work in children's ministry, this would make a great gift.
Awesome - REQUIRED READING May 25, 2004
This is one of the most awesome books you will ever read on the unimaginable importance of bringing up young children to know the love of God. If you are even thinking of being a "Sunday School" teacher - whether you teach the class on Sunday or any other of God's created days - you cannot be anywhere near as effective until you have read this book!
Moving and very Effective Mar 14, 1998
This is an excellent book which encourages readers of all ages, status and regional location to get out and share Jesus Christ in their world wherever that is. This is a wonderful book.It changed my life. Bill Wilson is a man who will undoubtedly receive a very warm welcome into heaven. I'm certain he has the applause of angels and all of heaven's citizen's. I believe they are throwing an ongoing party up there because of Bill' work on this planet which we are journeying through.
