Welcome to lenwilson.us


People first experience the power of what can be not through analysis but through art.

My life is oriented around a God-given purpose: To use oral, written and visual means to communicate the story of Jesus Christ and grow God’s kingdom. My primary art is writing, and my main vocational focus is church communications.

My aim is that this blog – the posts, the videos, the opportunities to engage further through books, speaking and consulting – helps you answer your questions about one of these core topics:
creativity, innovation, art, communications, Christian ministry, and the faith life.

I am the Creative Director at St. Andrew UMC, a large church in Plano, TX, where I lead a group of creatives and communications specialists. At St. Andrew, my goal is to communicate the gospel with beauty and power through story, and in the process foster a working environment where creatives want to be.

This short bio is good for use in publicity.
