Founding and Teaching Pastor
At age 20, Willie George began an outreach with Sunday School buses and quickly learned how to hold the attention of rowdy, unchurched kids. In the decade that followed, his groundbreaking techniques brought him to national prominence as an authority on children's ministry. In 1982, he created a wildly successful, nationally broadcast kids television program, The Gospel Bill Show.
In spite of his success as a traveling minister, he longed to build a local church where youth and children's ministries would be showcased. Since 1987, Church on the Move in Tulsa, OK has been a leader in effective ministry for children and teenagers, with outreaches like Dry Gulch USA and Oneighty.
Today, the effectiveness of his vision is revealed in the amazing second-generation leadership team at Church on the Move. The same communicative skills that marked Willie George as a children's minister have positioned him as the Founding Pastor of one of America's most innovative churches.
Willie and Deleva George have four children and ten grandchildren.
Heather grew up in Oregon and moved to Tulsa in 1997 to attend ORU. It was there that she and Whit met, and she started attending Church on the Move soon thereafter. Heather began working and volunteering in various areas of the church including Kids on the Move, the host team, and with our older adults. She has always enjoyed serving in many areas of the church, but now fully loves and embraces her role as Pastor alongside Whit. The influence of her compassionate heart can be felt in every area of Church on the Move.
