AoP Welcomes Wyndee Holbrook

Academy of Preachers excitedly welcomes Rev. Wyndee E. Holbrook as the new Senior Program Consultant. Rev. Holbrook previously worked at the Academy of Preachers from 2011-2016 serving in roles such as Lead Gospel Catalyst, Director of Programs, and Executive Director.

“I am thrilled that Wyndee Holbrook is returning to AoP. Throughout her five years on the AoP team she was a key part of our success. She loves the Young Preachers and they know it. Thanks be to God,” says Founding AoP President Dwight Moody.

Rev. Holbrook is a minister, entrepreneur, catalyst, and mentor. Having a long history on college campuses and in non-profit leadership she determined in 2016 to take flight with Holbrook Consulting focusing on connecting people, ideas, and resources. Her years in campus ministry and the Academy of Preachers taught her the power of cultivating every voice.  In addition to her work with AoP, she is honored to serve with Nevertheless She Preached, a conference celebrating the gifts that women bring to preaching. A native of Kentucky, she is a newly minted Texan living with her husband in San Antonio. She credits her wealth of mentors and education (Bachelor of Social Work and a Master of Divinity) for giving her the confidence to lean in to her gifts to help people get from where they are to who they need to be.

Rev. Holbrook’s work with AoP will include coordinating recruitment and engagement efforts with Young Preachers, AoP Alumni and Institutional Partners for the 2019 National Festival of Young Preachers and other AoP programs and events.

AoP President Ernest A. Brooks III expressed the organization’s excitement; “Wyndee is a tireless advocate for Young Preachers. She has developed deep relationships with scores of Young Preachers, iPartners, mentors, and friends of AoP over her many years of service to our organization in a variety of formal and informal roles. I am thrilled to have her working with me and the AoP staff team to lead recruitment and engagement efforts as we strive to make the 2019 National Festival of Young Preachers – our 10th National Festival – the best yet!”
