iROCC Williams Biography:

iROCC Williams, whose name stands for I Rely On Christ Completely (Proverbs 3:5), has spent his career reaching out to people of all ages, talking about his Savior.

“I want to touch not just kids, but all people, and let them understand what this is all about,” said iROCC in his official bio. “It’s not about me. It’s about God the Father. I want to lead people to Christ, and also let them know it’s fun to be with God. When you have Him, you don’t have to be afraid of anything.”

Treiva Williams, iROCC's mother, says that he always had a very daring, outgoing personality. He was modeling and doing TV spots by the age of three. His path to Christ also came at an early age, in 1997. Treiva was undergoing treatment for cancer when both she and her husband gave their lives to Christ and became active in the ministry of the local church.
Before long iROCC and his three siblings followed in their parent’s footsteps, each committing their own lives to the Lord. They are mentored in Atlanta’s New Birth Missionary Baptist Church under Bishop Eddie Long.

iROCC is a young man with a deep sense of calling and purpose, building his ministry under the banner: “Created to Praise. Called to Minister. Chosen to Represent.” (based on Jeremiah 1:5-10)

“I want kids to understand that God created everything, including them,” he concludes, “and we all belong to Christ, whether we realize that or not. I’ve had drama and problems going on in my own life, and when I’ve taken them to Him, He’s always been there to solve them for me. I want everybody to know He’ll do the same for them, too.”
