David Wilkinson has a unique perspective when it comes to raising funds on behalf of nonprofit organizations. Having lived in South Africa for 7 years, he has seen third-world devastation. This overwhelming poverty has massively impacted his worldview and he now knows what many Americans don’t: our country is amazing and we have the opportunity to have a huge impact on those in need. Through God’s grace, the issues we face are not insurmountable.
At his first personal fundraiser in 2000, David saw God move in a miraculous way as 30 people gave enough for three years of his ministries expenses. This awe-inspiring event laid the foundation for his passionate and faithful work as a speaker for The Exponential Group.
David Wilkinson is the CEO of The Global Equipping Center. During his career, he oversaw the building of over 500,000 gardens in Africa as part of the Never Ending Gardens Initiative, and has spoken in over 20 countries around the world developing exponentially minded leaders.
With decades of experience, David is committed to developing business leaders through consulting and personal coaching. David has personally trained with Fortune 500 executives, has presented 7 major papers at the International Academic Conference, and is very passionate about connecting businesses and to their ministry purposes.
After receiving his B.A. in Biblical Studies from William Jennings Bryan College, David received an M.A. in Christian Education from Dallas Theological Seminary and continues to develop curriculum for business and ministry leaders from around the world.
David lives in Chicago, IL with his wife and 6 children.
