About Scott Wilson
Scott Wilson has been in full-time pastoral ministry for more than 30 years. He is the Global Pastor of Oaks Church located in Red Oak, Texas—ministering to thousands of people each week.
He helped his father, Dr. Tom Wilson, start one of the most innovative public school systems in the State of Texas. Life School currently educates 5,600 K-12 students in ten locations throughout the Dallas area. Additionally, because of Scott’s desire to train Kingdom leaders, he created the Oaks School of Leadership, a specialized ministry training school on the campus of Oaks Church that has sent out over 500 leaders into full-time, vocational ministry.
Scott’s burning passion is that each generation would grow bigger, better, and stronger because of the investment and intentionality of the previous generation. For decades, he has poured his life into younger pastors, church planters, and leaders so that his ceiling would be their floor. In 2019, with the vision of planting thousands of churches, he launched “The Father Initiative,” a ministry dedicated to multiplying spiritual fathers and mothers to multiply churches.
In his most recent book, “Parenting with Purpose,” Scott draws from his experience as a Dad to help parents raise world-changers. He is the author of several other books including “P3: Praying in the Spirit, with Understanding, and In Agreement,” “Ready, Set, Grow: 3 Conversations That Will Bring Lasting Growth to Your Church,” and “Steering Through Chaos: Mapping a Clear Direction in the midst of transition and change.”
Scott is a loving husband and proud father. Scott and his wife, Jenni, have been married for almost 30 years and have three sons and two daughters-in-law: Dillon and Holly, Hunter and Emily, and Dakota.
