Reverend William E. Wyatt, Sr., Pastor
Reverend William E. Wyatt, Sr. was born on April 25, 1959. He is the son of Mrs. Pearlie Wyatt and the late Sandy Wyatt Sr. The reverend was raised in a home where the Gospel was ministered and heeded. His father in Christ, the late Dr. W.E. Spears was a major influence in his life. Dr. Spears started William on his spiritual journey in 1968. Under the doctor’s tutelage, William accepted Christ as his personal Savior and heeded the call to the ministry at the age of nine. William followed that action as an ordained and anointed minister of the Gospel. He was called by God to deliver those that are held captive by circumstances. Aside from being the pastor of our church, William is a musician and vocalist. Being fully persuaded of his call in Christ Jesus, he delivers the word of God through preaching, teaching, and singing. Dr. Spears handed the torch to Reverend Wyatt in November 1999 with the approval of the entire congregation. Pastor Wyatt’s plight has been slow but sure. His vision for the Progressive Missionary Baptist Church is focused on the generations to come. “It will establish their ways, strengthen their resolve, and produce disciples of Jesus, the Christ.” Pastor Wyatt partnered with World Vision (TNN) and Voices of Hope to provide spiritual sustenance for the low-income and indigent West Dallas community, in which he faithfully serves. He stands firm and never waivers or compromises when declaring the word of God in these times. William is a graduate of W.T. White High School of Dallas, Texas. He attended the University of North Texas (formerly North Texas State University) before beginning his career at Vought Corporation. There, he worked for 35 years before retiring in 2013. Pastor Wyatt is married to his high school sweetheart, the former Antionette Mitchell, for 35 years. They are the proud parents of two adult children, William Jr. and Christina. They are the grandparents of an adorable grandson, Amari.

Mrs. Wyatt expertly organizes, facilitates, and lectures at workshops, seminars, and conferences. She is often invited to speak on issues relating to marriage, parenting, and women in leadership. Her servitude and virtue blend well to exemplify the character of a Pastor’s wife. Mrs. Wyatt considers her life a wonderful blessing from God. She is one who accepts the precious privilege and awesome responsibility of seizing every opportunity to speak about the love of Jesus Christ and His awesome Word. Mrs. Wyatt accepted Christ into her life at the age of 15. She attended Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas. In her personal life, she is the proud mother of two adult children, William Jr. and Christina. She has one grandson, Amari. Mrs. Wyatt is excited about Jesus Christ.
