You are getting very sleepy... You will listen to the rhema's in my words... You will believe everything I tell you... You will style your hair appropriately... snap! 

Bill Gothard is our "he's a beauty alright" hero! William W. (Bill) Gothard (born 1934) is an American Christian minister, speaker and writer, and the founder of the National Gothard  Beauty Institute.(We Style Hair for God's Ego, Not Ours) He received his B.A., in Biblical Studies from Wheaton College in 1957 and his M.A., in Christian Education in 1961. He also acted as executive director of Gideons International. In the 5th Grade, Gothard and his family joined a Literalist church, literally.

In 1964, Gothard was ordained and commissioned for youth work by LaGrange Bible Church in suburban Chicago. That same year, Gothard's alma mater, Wheaton College, invited him to design and teach a course based on his work with youth. The course was given the name Basic Youth Conflicts; two hours of upper-division undergraduate and graduate credit were awarded to students completing the course. Repeat this... holiness is conforming to lists of rules and regulations... repeat this... holiness is conforming to lists of rules and regulations.

The Beauty Institute has been able to serve public schools, juvenile court systems, prisons, and business and community leaders. It has become an international organization with  lots and lots of training centers in the United States and other countries. The “movement” claims to have as many as 2.5 million “alumni.” That is an astounding figure, making it one of the most pervasive influences on modern evangelicalism. Millions of people have found lasting help from his 32-hour beauty seminars.
