Our Speaker: Dennis Wilhite
Dr. Dennis Wilhite began his career as an educator in 1991 after 20 years of local church ministry. For 26 years he taught a range of student ministry, discipleship, and leadership and Bible courses for Clarks Summit University (PA). He also instructs graduate courses for Liberty University’s School of Divinity in their online program and is an academic mentor for other distance program professors.
Dennis served as the student ministries pastor, then interim senior pastor at First Baptist Church (North Tonawanda, NY) from 1973 to 1981, then accepted the call to fill the student ministries position at Calvary Baptist Church (Grand Rapids, MI) where he served until 1991. His focus has been discipling people for the work of the ministry both in his years in the local church and in his ministry at Clarks Summit University.
In 1974, Dennis took his first wilderness trip as a youth pastor. Ten years later, he launched Pilgrimage to help grow other ministry leaders in their capacity to leverage the wilderness environment for ministry outcomes. Over the past 34 years, Pilgrimage Educational Resources has leveraged it’s focus on experience based learning into a wide array of educational programming that is offered through multiple colleges and universities in a wide variety of contexts around the world.
After all of these years, his favorite classroom is still the wilderness and he still participates in the Wilderness Institute for Leadership Develop along with his three sons who all grew up engaged in the pilgrimage with him.
