Pete Wilson is former senior pastor of Cross Point Church in Nashville, Tennessee and is now a teaching pastor at Northridge Church. Born and raised in Nashville, Pete earned his Bachelor’s degree in Communications from Western Kentucky University and attended seminary at Southern Seminary in Louisville, KY. After planting his first church in Kentucky, Pete returned to his hometown of Nashville to start Cross Point in 2002.
Under Pete’s leadership, Cross Point grew to reach more than 7,500 people each weekend through its seven campuses located around the Nashville area, and online. As one of the fastest growing churches in America, Pete’s ministry has been focused on the idea that everyone is welcome, because nobody’s perfect but anything’s possible. He loves to share what he is learning about leadership, life, branding, and faith by speaking at both national and international conferences.
Pete is a strong believer in the fact that God has always used imperfect people to do amazing things, He inspires others to pursue God’s plan despite their brokenness. For the people Pete leads and does life with, he is an inspiring leader, emotionally generous communicator, and approachable friend. These characteristics easily translate when Pete speaks and are apparent in his writing.
Pete gained national attention in 2010 when Thomas Nelson published his best-selling book, Plan B, a title that has been printed in five languages. Empty Promises, Pete’s much-anticipated second book, looks to help the reader identify their own inclination to drift toward putting their identity in other things and offer them a wake-up call to find their meaning in Christ alone. Let Hope In, Pete’s third book, presents a new look at the power of healing through hope, revealing 4 unique choices that have the potential to change your life forever. With Wilson’s telltale cadence and candor, Let Hope In explores accounts of seemingly hopeless moments in the Bible; illustrating God’s ultimate plan for healing by letting hope fill the dark places of your past.
Pete’s fourth book, What Keeps You Up At Night?, released in May of 2015. It challenges you to take steps of trust along the path toward God’s best for your life and enable you to withstand doubt, opposition, and worry.
