Pastor Wynston E. Dixon was born in Liberia, West Africa. He answered the call of God on his life in the sixth grade, through the Holy Ghost teachings of his Bible teacher, Rev. Joel Leroy. After receiving his high school diploma from Ricks Institute (1974), Pastor Dixon graduated with honors in Theology from Cuttington University College in Liberia (1979), where he served as President of the Student Government. During his presidency, he represented the University and his country at an international meeting of student leaders in Tripoli, Libya and Lagos, Nigeria

 
While at Cuttington University College, Pastor Dixon was appointed by the President of Liberia, The Rev. Dr. William R.
