After 14 years, Cross Point Church senior pastor Pete Wilson is resigning.
Wilson founded Cross Point Church in 2002 and by 2013 it was named one of America’s fastest growing churches by Outreach Magazine. The church serves almost 7,500 people every Sunday and has six locations throughout the Nashville area.
“Leaders who lead on empty don’t lead well,” Wilson said. “For some time, I’ve been leading on empty.”
The church’s board of elders said that Wilson’s resignation was “100 percent his decision” and they tried to persuade him not to leave.
“I’m tired,” Wilson said. “And I’m broken and I just need some rest. I love you all; I love the vision of this church more today than I ever have. I believe in the elders of this church, I believe in the leaders of this church. I believe they have a good handle on this situation moving forward.”
