About Gary Wilkerson
Gary Wilkerson comes from a long line of devoted ministers of the gospel — a great great grandfather who served in the Civil War, a great grandfather who was a tent revival preacher, a grandfather who was a denominational leader and a father who is an internationally recognized author, evangelist and pastor.
Gary carries on this calling not out of obligation or sense of family heritage, but a clear calling from God he received when he was only 6 years old. He began preaching at 16, youth pastor at 19 and planted his first church at 23. Since that time he has helped plant more churches, served on staff at Times Square Church, started an orphanage, an inner city school and a coffee house for young people in San Francisco.
From 2002 to 2010 Gary traveled with his father, David Wilkerson, conducting pastors’ conferences around the world. He continues to lead EXPECT Church Leadership Conferences that encourage pastors and church leaders to expect nothing less than God’s very best for their lives and ministries. His first book, The Divine Intercessor, was released in 2002.
The primary call on Gary’s life is to be a pastor. In 2009, through God’s direction Gary, along with a few close friends, founded The Springs Church in Colorado Springs. In a few short years, the church has grown from a small gathering in a house to a body of more than 1,500 people. The heart of the church is to live and share the gospel of Christ. Gary’s desire is that many would come to know the height, depth and vastness of the love of Jesus.
