Robyn Wilkerson announced as 2019 commencement speaker

North Central University is pleased to announce that pastor, author, and North Central University Chancellor Robyn Wilkerson, D. Min., will deliver the address at Commencement Exercises on Friday, May 3, at 2:30 p.m., at Cedar Valley Church in Bloomington.

Dr. Robyn Wilkerson’s professional career has spanned many varied industries, including mortgage banking, residential construction, television production, and nonprofit administration. She is a speaker, preacher, and professional life coach. Wilkerson is the author of “Shattering the Stained Glass Ceiling: A Coaching Strategy for Women Leaders in Ministry” and co-author of “Inside Out: How Everyday People Become Extraordinary Leaders.”

Wilkerson completed her Doctor of Ministry degree from Evangel University in 2017, focusing on coaching and women in leadership. Her formal education and her personal experiences allow her to coach individuals to help them grow and succeed in their personal and professional lives. Over the years, she has personally experienced the difficulties women leaders face, and she wants to use every resource at her disposal to guide other women leaders as they strive to reach their full potential.

Wilkerson received her call to ministry at the age of 12, through a series of life-changing encounters with God. Since then she has led multiple ministries, raised four sons who are in ministry, and she currently co-pastors Trinity Church in Miami, Florida, with her husband, Pastor Rich Wilkerson, who is also a North Central University Chancellor.

At the commencement exercises Friday, the Class of 2019 will receive bachelor’s, master’s, or associate’s degrees, and represents one of the largest graduating classes in recent years. The ceremony will be live-streamed, including ASL-interpreting, via North Central’s Facebook page.
