Mike Wilson headlines Fall Awakening at UC


Williamsburg, KY., - Bringing a message about unconditional love to the students at University of the Cumberlands (UC), Mike Wilson headlined the annual Fall Awakening. Wilson spoke on relationships between young men and women, relationships with God, and his organization, My Life Speaks.

“Ladies, don’t fall for the word [love,] fall for the person,” Wilson said.

Wilson gave his speech about relationships between men and women and their relationship with God. He explained how the word love is emotional for women and physical for men. Wilson enlightened the crowd with the definition of ‘unconditional love.’ Wilson said that unconditional love can only exist between a person and God.

My Life Speaks, an organization out of Nashville, Tennessee, speaks up for those who cannot. The organization helps the people in Haiti, where half the population is under the age of 15, half the population is illiterate, and has an 80% unemployment rate. Wilson and My Life Speaks work to improve the lives of Haitian orphans, so that they can have a better opportunity for a prosperous life.

“It’s my passion; it’s my life,” Wilson said. “It’s where God has put me and my wife.”

Wilson is a native of Nashville, Tennessee. He and his wife Missy have six children. Wilson is a graduate of University of the Cumberlands, known then as Cumberland College. He went on to the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in 1995.
