About the Speaker

Colonel Jeffrey Williams (U.S. Army, Ret.) Jeff Williams received his commission as a second lieutenant from the U.S. Military Academy in 1980 and served over 27 years in the Army.  He has advanced degrees in aeronautical engineering and national security and is a graduate of the Naval Test Pilot School. In 1996 he began his career as a NASA astronaut and continues today in that service.  Over the past 17 years, Colonel Williams flew one 10-day Space Shuttle mission and two Russian Soyuz missions, each for approximately six-month stays on board the International Space Station (ISS), in positions of flight engineer and commander.  To date, Williams has logged more than 362 days in space and more than 19 hours in three spacewalks.  He is currently preparing for another Soyuz flight to the ISS in 2016 for another six-month stay. Jeff serves the Lord as a lay leader and Bible teacher in his local church.  His coffee-table-style book, The Work of His Hands, was published in 2010 and features a collection of his photographs from space paired with his observations of his experience during the 2006 stay on ISS.  He and his wife, Anna-Marie, live near Houston, Texas and have two grown sons and three grandchildren.

That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.
