The Cobeac Team

Meet the Director and his family

Aaron spent nine years serving on the pastoral staff of First Baptist Church of Bridgeport, MI, where the Lord strengthened and grew his desire to minister to youth and families. He had been coming to CoBeAc since 2005, and is now happy to be serving as Executive Director. Aaron is excited to minister to pastors, youth pastors, and churches with a perspective of the priority of the local church.

Tina grew up coming to CoBeAc with her family and church, and has enjoyed showing their boys, Jackson and William, the many places that held special memories for her as a child. She enjoys getting involved in the many ministries of camp: hostessing, ladies retreats, banquet planning, and counseling the ladies in CBBI and on summer staff.

The Wilson’s are excited to serve and grow at CoBeAc.
