The Reverend Doctor William H. Knight
The transition from actor, singer, producer, writer and director to minister, teacher, and counselor began on a Wednesday night when William attended a class being held at the home of legendary singer/actress Della Reese. This first meeting was to become a working relationship that endured and prospered for over twenty-three years.
In August of 1995, William was ordained as a minister. He received a Bachelor’s and a Master’s Degree in Metaphysics from the University of Metaphysics and a Doctor of Divinity Degree from the University of Sedona.
In 2007, his spiritual path led him to the welcoming arms of the Universal Fellowship of Metropolitan Community Churches. He has served as Intentional Interim Minister at Water of Life MCC in Tucson, Arizona, Intentional Interim Minister at MCC of San Jose, California, Provisional Pastor of MCC San Francisco, Pastor of Open Arms MCC on the Big Island of Hawaii and is now serving as Senior Pastor of MCC San Antonio.
Rev. William has participated in Inter-Faith services in Los Angeles, Santa Monica. Tucson, San Jose, San Francisco, Hawaii and San Antonio. Rev. Dr. Knight is a great believer in the important role that the church plays in the health and well-being of the community. He firmly and completely believes that when the church is involved and dedicated to translating the “Good News” of God’s radically inclusive love into concrete actions, everyone is blessed.
