Wilson Joins HU’s Senior Leadership Team
“In the University’s strategic plan, Faith Forward 2022, spiritual development and formation play a key part in helping the campus align with the focus on sustaining spiritual significance and faithful service. Having the campus pastor and dean of spiritual life involved more closely in the University’s administrative decisions promotes greater awareness of the importance of spiritual impact in all we do,” said Dr. Sherilyn Emberton, president.
Some of Wilson’s key responsibilities include community worship and teaching, spiritual development and growth for students and staff, pastoral care, and leading campus ministries and outreach opportunities. As a member of the senior leadership team, Wilson will also be involved in the University’s strategic and long-term planning.
“I am truly thankful for the opportunity God has given me to collaborate with staff and faculty in keeping Christ-at-center here at Huntington University. I am ready for the challenge and I am dependent on God knowing He will use me to the fullest for His kingdom,” said Arthur Wilson, dean of Spiritual Life/Campus Pastor.
Wilson formerly served as the City Life coordinator for Fort Wayne Area Youth for Christ. City Life is a division of the Primetime Community Center that oversees day-to-day operations of the center and partners with Huntington University to offer educational resources, recreational activities, group meetings, small groups and Bible studies to at-risk teenagers. Wilson has represented Fort Wayne Area Youth for Christ on a national level by serving as a camp speaker and member of the City Life National Team.
In 2004, Wilson graduated from Taylor University Fort Wayne with a Bachelor of Science degree in pastoral ministries. In 2012, he earned a Master of Arts degree in youth ministry leadership from Huntington University. Wilson began his tenure at Huntington University in 2009 as Director of the Horizon Leadership Program, before accepting the broader role as campus pastor.
