Two alumni awards are given to alumni regularly recognizing those who have served with distinction in ministry and those who have shown character and outstanding ability on the athletic field.

See the criteria, process for selecting, and recent recipients of:

Aaron ('03, '05) and Kristina ('05, Jackson) Wilson

During his senior year at Moline Public High, Aaron came to the understanding that he could know God and have a vibrant personal relationship with Him. Shortly thereafter, the Lord directed him to Maranatha. At Maranatha, he played basketball, participated in societies, and enjoyed extension at Bible Baptist Church in Utica, WI. After receiving his undergraduate in Biblical Studies, he earned his Master’s in 2005 while traveling for the admissions office.
Aaron and Kristina Jackson were married in 2005, then headed off to their first full time ministry opportunity at the First Baptist Church of Bridgeport, Michigan. He spent nine years serving on the pastoral staff where the Lord strengthened and grew his desire to minister to youth and families. During this time, their sons, Jackson ('07) and William ('08) were born. In the fall of 2013, Aaron and his family moved to Camp CoBeAc in Prudenville, Michigan where he became the Executive Director. There he oversees a staff of 13 full-time employees, 80 summer staff and 10-15 year-round interns. He is excited to minister to pastors, youth pastors, and churches with a perspective of the priority of the local church.
Kristina serves in multiple capacities as Director’s wife and Office Manager.
The Wilsons are active members of Houghton Lake Baptist Church.
