He is also the director of the Paideia College Society (formerly the Pew College Society), an academic organization now internally funded by DBU and supported by generous donors. Overall, the PCS seeks to deepen the undergraduate students’ educational experience through a vision of Christian humanism and classical liberal education in this context.
Dr. Wilkes served as Senior Pastor of Legacy Church, Plano, TX, for twenty-six years prior to coming to Carroll Institute as Vice President of Development. During his local church ministry, Legacy Church transitioned to become “a mission outpost where every member is a missionary in his or her mission field.” Two unique ministries of the church were its English Language Program, which has over 150 students weekly studying five levels of English, and the Legacy Cyclists, which meets Sunday afternoons for group rides and cycling events. Both ministries produced baptisms and members to Legacy and sister churches in the community.
Legacy Church was a Teaching Church in the B. H. Carroll Nexus, and Dr. Wilkes was a Resident Fellow for Carroll that seeks to return theological education back to the local church and restore the value of Pastor/Teacher in the local church. Dr. Wilkes has also taught Biblical Servant Leadership as an adjunct professor in the Gary Cook School of Leadership at Dallas Baptist University at both the Masters and Ph.D. levels. Along with his teaching ministry, Dr. Wilkes speaks nationally and internationally on the topic of servant leadership and as a Bible teacher. Some of the international sites include Cuba, China, Vietnam, Albania, Greece, Russia, Canada, and Honduras. Dr. Wilkes lives in Plano, TX, with his wife, Kim, and they have two married daughters and two grandchildren. Dr. Wilkes’ hobbies include trail running, hiking, mountaineering, cycling, and golf. He summited 14,410-ft. Mt. Rainier, WA, on his 60th birthday in 2013.
