Heather Entrekin, Central Seminary, KS
When Central Baptist Seminary established a faculty position in congregational health three years ago, the first place we turned for advice, resources, and support was the Center for Congregational Health. Bill Wilson welcomed and encouraged us, providing strategic insights and connections that helped to shape and strengthen our program. We turned to Bill again as we looked for faculty to teach in a new doctor of ministry program in congregational health. He developed and taught a course on entrepreneurial leadership out of his years of pastoral and organizational experience along, scholarship, deep commitment to enabling the church to be faithful to its calling, and enthusiasm for effective theological education. Needless to say, he was an outstanding teacher.
We are excited about the potential of the new Center for Healthy Churches. With Bill at the helm, there will be many fresh opportunities for serving and transforming the church as it serves the purposes of God for our day.
