Nearly half a century ago, Rev. Cecil Williams took over as the minister of a small Methodist church in San Francisco's Tenderloin. He went on to transform Glide into a diverse institution committed to inclusiveness and devoted to serving the poor and marginalized. Today, with a budget of over $15 million, Glide provides free meals, health care and other services to thousands of people each day.

Rev. Williams joins us as part of our First Person series on the leaders, innovators and other compelling characters who make the Bay Area unique.
