Pastor Gary Wilkerson, son of Teen Challenge Founder David Wilkerson, will be one of the main speakers at the 2017 Conference. Gary Wilkerson is the President of World Challenge. He is also the Lead Pastor of The Springs Church in Colorado Springs, CO.
Gary has traveled nationally and internationally at conferences and conducted mission ventures such as church planting, starting orphanages, clinics and feeding programs among the poorest of the poor and the most unreached people of the earth. Gary and his wife Kelly have four children and live in Colorado Springs, CO.
Gary Randall Wilkerson was born on July 19, 1958. He was the third of four children and the first son of David and Gwen Wilkerson. Gary remembers receiving a clear call for ministry from God early on in his life. At the age of 19, God began to fulfill this call in his life through a position as a youth pastor. From that time Gary has helped lead and plant numerous churches, an orphanage and many mission outreaches both nationally and internationally. From 1999 to 2008 Gary traveled with his father, David Wilkerson, conducting pastors’ conferences around the world. He continues to lead EXPECT Church Leadership Conferences to encourage pastors and church leaders. In 2009, Gary founded The Springs Church in Colorado Springs, CO, which he continues to lead today. Gary took full leadership of World Challenge as the president in 2010.
Throughout his ministry, Gary has seen God’s heart for the impoverished and hurting of the world. He has focused the mission work of World Challenge to minister Christ’s love to the poorest of the poor around the globe. He shares this same heart as he ministers to leaders at EXPECT Conferences and to the congregation at The Springs Church. His desire is that all would know the life and joy found in Jesus Christ.
