Bobby Wilson came into this world in very humble beginnings in Siloam Springs, Arkansas, on September 22, 1940. As a young man he followed the harvest and worked the fields with his family. He graduated from Southwestern Assemblies of God University in 1961 with a Bachelor’s degree in ministerial studies. He and Alvena dedicated their lives to serving others in ministry. He pastored in Texas and Oklahoma and spent six years on the Evangelist field. He has served in several district positions; Presbyter, Executive Presbyter, Assistant Superintendent and General Presbyter. Pastor Wilson has spoken at men's retreats, camps and conferences and was a 1989 General Council Speaker.
He was the Pastor at Praise Assembly of God Church in Pueblo, Colorado for 45 years, where he served with love and taught others to love people and serve God. He was well known at both Pueblo hospitals, all nursing homes, etc. as he would not let his congregation members feel alone in their time of need. He would show up with a kind word and prayers for healing. He was instrumental in starting the Cooperative Care Center to help the homeless and those who found themselves in difficult situations. He was often recognized for his service to the Pueblo community and would respond with humility and kindness. He taught us so much, our hearts are filled with gratitude. He loved to share his favorite scripture: “The Lord is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble and he knows those who trust in him.” Nahum 1:7.
Bobby went to his eternal reward and heard the words “Well done thou good and faithful servant” on December 18, 2020.
