In the month of November, we recognized our veterans. Those who have served our country proudly! We also celebrated Thanksgiving by giving thanks and showing hospitality to others at CCBS. We would like to introduce you to one of our current staff members Lewillis Q. Wilson SR “Lee”.
You will find Lee’s unique background in hospitality and military service has better prepared him for serving the veterans at CCBS. His passion for hospitality and serving others makes every student feel the warm hospitality that CCBS offers. To this end, Lee currently serves as the Veteran Liaison for CCBS. Part of his duties are to serve as a school certifying official, academic advisor, and teacher assistant. He enjoys helping counsel veterans on how to use their hard-earned education benefits to further their education in Biblical Studies.
Lee left high school to join the Job Corps to pursue a career in Culinary Arts. After Job Corp, he then enlisted in the United States Army in April 1999. After a distinguished career as a food service sergeant and dining facility manager, he was medically retired from active duty due war-time injuries. His retirement allowed him to obey the calling to go into ministry.
On 9 January 2013, he was ordained by The United Christians Church and Ministerial Association and continued to pursue his calling into ministry by going to Bible College and serving as a youth minister and leader. His ministry has extended to the Fort Bragg Area and Community included: Wood Memorial Chapel-Children Church Leader, Teen Ministry Leader, and Lay Minister from, Campus Life EE Smith High, and youth minister at Mt. Sinai Missionary Baptist Church.
Lee has earned two Associate of Applied Science degrees. One from Columbia Southern University in Business and another at Central Texas College in Restaurant and Culinary Management. He also earned his Bachelor’s in Biblical Studies with a double minor Apologetics and Biblical Counseling from Carolina College of Biblical Studies in Fayetteville, NC 2019. The receipt of both of these degrees has fueled his passion to minister to the veterans of CCBS in a warm hospitable way.
In addition, he also serves as the E.E. Smith Football Chaplain and Frist Responder, and ministry site partner for E.E. Smith High School Campus. He considers himself as a servant leader and loves spending time sharing God’s Word to the youth of today. He is married to Diana Wilson and is the proud father of three young men, Lewillis Wilson JR, Levon Wilson, and Christopher Wilson.
If you would please join us in lifting Lee up in prayer that he may continue to minister to veterans and continue to help them feel the warm hospitality that CCBS offers!
