Willie George is the founding and lead pastor of Church on the Move in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Born and raised in Texas, George converted to Christianity while in high school. He and his wife, Deleva, have been married over 30 years. In addition to a teenage daughter, they have four children and ten grandchildren.

Willie George became a Christian in 1972 and began work in the Children's Ministry as a youth pastor of a church of 200 in Plainview, Texas.

He decided to resign from the church in 1980 and travel — he formed his own ministry later on in that year. Willie George is well known for his role as "Gospel Bill" in his evangelism TV shows. He also performed in the Gospel Bill role in one episode of The Wichita Slim Trilogy alongside Kenneth Copeland as Wichita Slim. Willie George was also instrumental in producing Fire By Nite, a televised Christian program aimed at reaching a youthful audience.
