Everything Is Going Down, But The Word……Less than a month after his resignation as senior pastor of the multi-campus Cross Point Church in Nashville, Tennessee, Pete Wilson, who also authored the best-selling book Plan B, is starting a new chapter in his professional life as president of marketing and technology firm, The A Group.

“We are so excited to have Pete Wilson join our team,” The A Group’s founder and CEO Maurilio Amorim said in a statement on the appointment on Monday. “I have known Pete for a long time and know his heart for ministry, as well as the deep knowledge and wisdom he has acquired during his time leading large, growing organizations. Being able to offer his invaluable experience and counsel to other leaders is an honor.”
Wilson cited exhaustion and personal brokenness as the reason behind his shocking Sept. 11 resignation from the helm of the church he started with his wife, Brandi, 14 years ago.
While his decision shocked many in the church community, Wilson explained in a blog post on Monday that he had been planning to exit church ministry for a long time.
“The decision may have seemed quick to some, but I can attest to the fact that it was not. For some time now I’ve felt this general feeling that I was out of season. That it was time for something different,” he wrote.
“One of the keys of life is knowing when you’ve overstayed a season. Maybe something just isn’t as enjoyable as it used to be or maybe you’re not as good at it as you once were. Maybe the tasks that once brought you joy now seem to drain you, leaving you empty. Maybe God puts a new dream on your heart or shuts a few doors along the way. Whatever the circumstance, you know that your season is coming to a close,” he continued.
“Leading out of season left my soul with a desire for rest and quiet. So I’ve spent a lot of time in the past few months in silence, including taking several weeks off before my decision. And the silence wasn’t empty. It was actually filled with answers,” he added.
Wilson said during his quiet time he discovered among other things that: he has an entrepreneurial spirit, has a passion for the local church, loves caring for and protecting the hearts of other pastors, and he wants to invest his time doing something that is going to make a difference in the world.
