G. I. Williamson
Williamson retired after fifty years of Christian ministry. After serving in the army and working as a dance hall musician, Williamson converted to Christianity at age 21. He attended Hope College in Holland, Michigan for one year and then transferred to Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa. He graduated from Drake in 1949.
In 1952, he earned a B.D. from Pittsburgh-Xenia Theological Seminary under John Gerstner. He served in various positions as a pastor for fifty years including two terms as a minister in the Reformed Churches of New Zealand.
While in New Zealand he served in Mangere (one of three congregations in Auckland. It has since ceased to exist by that name) and Silverstream (a congregation in the Wellington region). He was twice elected as Moderator of the Synod (1965 and 1977). His clarity of thinking and teaching was greatly appreciated by the congregations throughout the country.
