Crediting much of his success to his education, William Lightner has gone on to lead a varied and prosperous life.
MARIETTA, GA, UNITED STATES, April 19, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — From finance executive to evangelist and public speaker, the Judson University, Illinois, graduate was recently awarded the title of 2018 Religious and Spiritual Services Professional of the Year by Strathmore's Who's Who.
"Judson University was an outstanding college for me because of the higher education setting and their worship of God – they made me into the man I am today," remarks William Lightner.
Graduating the Illinois-based educational institution before joining the military, and later taking up successful careers in professional sales and finance, Lightner has further gone on to travel the globe in his role as a religious evangelist.
Strathmore's Who's Who recognizes Lightner for his years of dedicated hard work in the fields of religion and spirituality. He was selected from over 1,100 shortlisted individuals to take this year's title.
Lightner, also the author of End Time Prophecy Made Easy, has traveled tens of thousands of miles in his religious and spiritual pursuits, all the while serving God in his new-found evangelical role.
"I've traveled tens of thousands of miles to almost 30 different countries over the course of several years," explains Lightner, who has assisted hundreds of individuals around the world, often on a one-to-one basis, in finding comfort in religion.
During his travels, Lightner has also addressed vast crowds typically numbering several thousand at a time. Here, he would teach people to acknowledge fellowship and faith through prayer, allowing them to live what he calls, "a more sound life as a follower of Christ."
Receiving news of his award win, Lightner remarks, "I'm incredibly proud to have been selected as this year's Religious and Spiritual Services Professional of the Year by Strathmore's Who's Who. It's fantastic recognition and a great accolade."
"I couldn't be happier," he adds.
Strathmore's Who's Who is a yearly publication which profiles and features successful individuals from the worlds of education, medicine, research, healthcare, business, law, government, sciences, engineering, and the arts. The predominantly biographical publication honors professionals who have demonstrated leadership and achievement in their respective fields.
Lightner explains, "Strathmore's Who's Who encourages accomplished professionals to network, take part in research, share information, and carry out mutually beneficial business."
The awards also recognize achievement in fields such as elementary and special needs education, emergency medicine, geoscience and geological consulting, healthcare therapy, and literary arts, as well as many others.
First educated at a private Baptist school, Lightner later joined Vestal High School in New York, before completing his education at Judson University.
It wasn't until later in life that Lightner decided to take a break from the mainstream, choosing instead to undertake a six-month training and development process to join a well known religious mission. "They're one organization I've loved doing work for," notes Lightner. "I'm honored to be connected with such a great group."
Now recognized as a popular evangelist and public speaker, Lightner believes that a considerable degree of his success in this area is owed to his passionate and personable nature. "I also believe it's about being powerful with words, which is something I strive to do every day," adds Lightner in closing.
