Paul Wilson to Take the Lead in MCC Admissions

Alumnus Paul Wilson, the new Director of Admissions, will be responsible for crafting the overall strategy to represent the ministry and educational programming available through Manhattan Christian College. 

Known for his proven ability to challenge and mentor high school students, Paul will lead and mentor the counseling team to build and maintain relationships with prospective students who are interested in ministry.

“My overall purpose in life is to point others to Jesus Christ through all I say and do,” Paul says.  “This new role at MCC allows me to use my gifts to inspire and guide young people in the development of their own faith so that they are prepared to serve in the kingdom of God.  MCC trains Christian leaders for a lifetime of service.”

Dr. Rick Wright, VP for Student Life says, “Paul’s ministries have modeled what we want to do in our admissions program.  As a youth minister at Christ’s Church of the Valley, he encouraged more than 100 students to attend MCC and pursue God’s calling on their life.  He is a mature, humble leader with credibility and influence.”  

Wilson graduated from Manhattan Christian College in 1992 with a Bible degree.  He completed a Masters in Ministry specializing in Theology and Church Leadership at Hope International University in 2000 and completed a Masters of Business Administration from Grand Canyon University in 2010.  His ministry and professional experience includes 18 years at Christ's Church of the Valley in Glendale, AZ, as a youth pastor and teaching pastor; four years as the founding pastor of Salt and Light Community Church; and four years as a high school Bible teacher in the Phoenix area.


Paul and his wife, Paula, who is also an MCC alumnus, have four children: Russell, 19, Marlee, 17, Jenna, 15, and Whitney, 12. The family will make the move to Kansas in June.

“My life has come full circle, I am returning to the place where I was born and raised and the place where I met my wife,” Paul says.  “I am really excited to be involved in mentoring the next generation of church leaders.  We must continue to stay ahead of the current culture and lead the kingdom of God into the 21st century.”
