Dr. William Golson
Director of Ministry Infrastructure and Innovation

Dr. William Golson serves as Director of Ministry Infrastructure at First Baptist Church of Murfreesboro, Tennessee. As director he ensures that our ministries are always operating at optimal capacity and ability. Toward ensuring that goal, he oversees and reviews the design, purpose, goals, and monitors implementation of each ministry to be consistent with the pastor’s goal; and the development and growth of leadership.


He is a native of Denver, Colorado. He graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Electronic Engineering Technology and worked for 20 years in the Aerospace industry. In his ministry endeavors, he founded and served for 29 years as fulltime Senior Pastor of True Light Baptist Church in Denver, Colorado before retiring in 2017. During his tenure, a 32,000-sq. ft. church facility was constructed, valued at $2.4 million; and established a congregation of approximately 800. He is a 2014 graduate of Denver Seminary with a Doctor of Ministry in Executive Leadership. He has received numerous awards and acknowledgements for work in the Denver secular and spiritual communities, was twice selected as Pastor of the Year, and served two terms as President of the Greater Metro Denver Ministerial Alliance.


He has authored six books: “On the Matter of Relationships,” “Adjusting Your Copy Quality”, “Good Advice From A Player,” “Facing Giants: Don’t Let Giants Cause You a Faith Failure”, “A Guide to Practical Living: Insights from the Epistle of James”, and “A Case for Christianity: Establishing a Foundation for Faith”.


His ministerial philosophy is rooted in the acknowledgment of God’s power as expressed in the Pauline benediction of Ephesians 3:20, 21 (NKJV), “Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.”


He is married to Melvia Jo and has two children: Melody and William (Ashley), and three grandchildren: Sable, Autumn, and Olivia
