Vickie Wilkinson
Missions Coordinator, vwilkson@aol.com
Vickie hails from the very small town of Cowpens, South Carolina. No lie…google it for historical data. This southern gothic background prepared her well for a life of missions, travel and finally landing as Missions Coordinator at a Methodist church in Bozeman Montana!
She graduated from the University of South Carolina (BA Psychology) and much, much later graduated from Rockbridge Seminary. Vickie has been a Sunday School teacher, led Bible Studies, guided mission trips, and even helped start a church once! She is married to the love of her life, John, and they have daughters Carolyn and Sarah and a bevy of brilliant and talented grandchildren.
Her love of missions began as a child, alongside her dear Aunt Etrulia, who taught her the value of helping others in the name of Christ. Now she eagerly engages anyone and everyone in being the “light” of God in a hurting and broken world. It is all about the love. Missions, she believes, is the heart of the church. Whether walking in Crop Walk or walking the colonias of El Salvador…Vickie wants others to come walk alongside her on the greatest journey of all.
