About the Speaker:
D r . H a r r y C . Washington, III is a Nationally Licensed Clinical Christian Counselor through the National Christian Counselors Association. He is the minister of the Outreach Church of Christ Ministries in Woodland, California. Dr. Washington realized that he had a calling on his life for counseling at a young age. He recalls as a teenager being selected as a youth counselor for the small children at the YMCA. It was during that summer that he realized the impact he had on the lives of others. During this season in his life, he began to go to church and was able to grow in many ways.
He reflects back to his home congregation of North Broadway Church of Christ in Mt. Clemens, Michigan. It was there that he first began to learn to minister to others in ways that would be pleasing to Christ. Dr. Washington retired from the United States Air Force after serving for 20 years. He thoroughly enjoyed his time in the Air Force. No matter where he was stationed, the body of Christ was there as his family.
While in the military Dr. Washington was able to become an Air Force Heavyweight Boxing Champion and the Army’s 7th Core Superheavyweight Boxing Champion. Being an athlete has enhanced his perseverance, dedication and commitment to the cause of the gospel of Christ.
