Minneapolis, Minnesota, led by Bishop Thomas R. Williams
Minneapolis’ very own Thomas R. Williams has been actively involved in Christian churches for over 30 years. This Mighty Fortress Church location provides its local area with several outreach programs; these efforts are aided tremendously by Williams’ extensive training in personal discipleship, by which church members are trained to be effective leaders outside of Minneapolis, Minnesota’s Mighty Fortress’ church’s walls.
Rock Island, Illinois
Located in the Quad Cities area of Illinois, Mighty Fortress Community Church boasts one of the largest followings of any Mighty Fortress seminary in the United States. Reverend Tom Schillinger founded the church more than two decades ago; together with Schillinger’s massive group of churchgoers, the Mighty Fortress location takes care of the Christian Care Center – this nonprofit organization is a homeless shelter that provides food and more on a daily basis – and King’s Harvest Ministries – though this location does serve the homeless, it also serves people who do have homes but are in need.

Looking into what Mighty Fortress International Church truly is
While everybody has their own unique idea as to what a “perfect” church service consists of, Bishop Williams can certifiably say that Mighty Fortress’ services are far from boring, quiet, or forgetful.
