In addition to completing five movies, he has written two books, Filming God, and Finding God in the Bible, and has a regular blog for Charisma Magazine called “Behind the Lens.” Wilson “concentrates on asking great questions and letting God answer them through reality filmmaking."

Taking English as a minor was one of the best choices I could have made on both a personal and professional level. From reading “The Screwtape Letters” to creative writing classes, my understanding of literature and the craft of writing grew. The greatest contribution of all was the encouragement and amazing support of professors who believed in and wanted me to succeed. They helped me pursue my passion for writing and it’s through them that I’ve reached my dream of becoming a published author.

"Judson’s English department helped me discover my love for journalism and nonfiction writing, and then gave me opportunities to develop and sharpen my craft. I can draw a direct line from the training I received at Judson to the career I have today. I’m forever grateful for this school, and especially for the faculty and staff who guided me toward my future."

"Don't regret a second! Take the classes that appeal to you, major in what you want to major in, but have a back-up plan. What will you do if you can't make it as an artist or writer or youth minister? That's what is great about Judson in my opinion, because no matter what major or program you decide on, it's only a small part of the whole experience."
