Rev. William Younsia Boduo was born on April 29, 1963 in Zwedru, Grand Gedeh County, Liberia, West Africa. While growing up, William, like many African children, suffered hardship, poverty and neglect and struggled to get an education. Because of his situation, he did not start going to school until age 12 and was called ABC Grandpa, meaning he was the oldest of his classmates. Through a lot of hard work and dedication, he graduated from Zwedru Multilateral High School in 1986 and went on to obtain a bachelors degree in Theology/Christian Ministry.
William Boduo accepted Jesus as his personal Lord and Savior in 1981 during an Assemblies of God Outreach Meeting held in Zwedru City, Liberia. After seminary study in Liberia, he went into full time ministry with an indigenous Bible believing church called African Christians Fellowship in 1987. In 2004, under threat of his life, he received political asylum and relocated his family to Michigan because of the generous hearts of a Christian church there. In 2008, he and his family moved to Upper Darby, Pa. Since arriving there, he has been co-founder of a Liberian church that has embraced the vision of ESORM and helped pray for divine guidance and direction.
