Pastor J.D. Wilson has twelve years’ experience leading small groups. His experience is expansive, to include leading small groups that help men who are struggling with addiction (sexual and relational) to small family fellowships that focus on holistic discipleship experiences. He has helped hundreds of men and women on their journey out of sexual addiction and emotional recovery from fatherlessness. He is ordained through Hope Community Church in Newport News, Virginia, where he completed a five-year apprenticeship in church planting and leadership development. He is currently the director of small groups at his home church, Communities of Hope, Inc. who are devoted to being a “movement of disciple makers.” He loves spending time with his family, reading nonfiction, watching inspiring movies, and enjoying a fun family board game. He is married to Ruth, and they have four beautiful children that they are called to disciple and love deeply.
