MEET OUR PASTOR

Ricky Wilson moved to South Carolina with his wife, Sarah, to plant Impact Drayton in May 2017.

 

Ricky is originally from Ohio and grew up in a small town near Cincinnati. Growing up, both of Ricky's parents struggled with drug addiction, and by age 12, Ricky began buying and selling drugs and stolen property to care for his family. During Ricky's teenage years he battled depression, PTSD and anxiety, and was filled with hate and anger. Even with these struggles, and tried everything he could think of to "fix" himself.

 

It wasn't until age twenty that he was invited to church for the first time in his life, and he experienced the love of Jesus, and that changed everything!

 

Since then, He has been on a  mission to share his experience with Jesus so others can be freed from the same things that plagued him for so long! God has given Ricky a broken heart for people far from God and those who are seeking purpose and identity. 

 

Since making the move to the Upstate, Ricky and Sarah have had three children --daughters Elliana and Haddie, and a son Titus -- and continued to follow in obedience for what God has for them.
