Pastor Wellington serves as the Pastor of Strategy and Operations at The Rock PC. In this role, he is responsible for incubating, launching, and building strategic initiatives that enable God's royal children to advance His Kingdom. His heartcry is for us to be released into our divine destinies across the mountains of culture---by walking in deep intimacy with the King, experiencing healing in our lives, and operating in true abundance from the inside out.
Wellington stewards the Marketplace ministry, the Rock House of Prayer, the Prayer Ministry, and has a vision for building a leadership development center. With a bi-vocational calling, Wellington has served in leadership roles in corporate strategy and management consulting. He has also served as adjunct faculty at George Mason's School of Business teaching strategy, management, and marketing. He earned an MPP from Harvard, a BA from Columbia, and is nearing the end of his seminary training, a long journey of grace that began in 2002 at Gordon-Conwell and will end at the John Leland Center. As a native New Englander (and avid sports fan), Wellington met his amazing wife, Cathy, during college in New York City---where God taught him about Yankees fans, forgiving brothahs and sistahs, and living in hahmony togetha. He is a proud father of three beautiful children.
