Gary Wilkerson has served more than 40 years in ministry and is currently the president of World Challenge. He has written three books, travels to encourage pastors worldwide and hosts a podcast to address the tough questions that trip up many believers.
After ministering at pastors' conferences with his father around the world, Gary began pastors' conferences with the desire to encourage pastors to encourage and strengthen them. He invites other trusted pastors, such as Pastor Carter Conlon of Times Square Church, Pastor Claude Houde of Nouvelle Vie and Pastor Jim Cymbala of Brooklyn Tabernacle to help encourage pastors and leaders around the globe. Gary, along with World Challenge, partners with local churches to organize these conferences to effectively reach local church leaders.
THE SPRINGS CHURCH
In 2009, Gary Wilkerson planted a church in Colorado Springs. As exemplified by his various ministry associations, Gary has always had the heart and calling of a shepherd. This church has been the fulfillment of something God placed on his heart years ago. God’s commission to this church is that believers would be the hands and feet of Christ to the lost and hurting in this city. You can find more information about The Springs Church on their website.
