Rev. Julie Wilson grew up in northeastern Vermont. She attended Elmira College for her degree in Secondary Education and Biology, Norwich University’s Vermont College for her Masters in Education and Wesley Theological Seminary for her Masters in Divinity degree. She and her husband, Rev. Heath Wilson, have been married for 21 years and have an 18 year old son, Jeffrey, who recently graduated from Catoctin High School in Thurmont. Rev. Heath is the pastor at Tom’s Creek UMC in Emmitsburg and Jeff works at NVR in Thurmont. Rev. Julie is also continuing on a limited basis in her previous role as the Deacon of Outreach and Service at Calvary UMC in Frederick while she is at Taylorsville.
In her free-time, Rev. Julie takes part in the CREDO ministry – it is similar to Walk to Emmaus, but more with folks who are in recovery (from addiction or other challenges in life). She also enjoys singing and is part of the Emmitsburg Community Chorus. She and her husband, and to some extent their son, are also part of the Monocacy Gamers, a club of people who gather to play intricate board games which challenge the mind and the imagination.
Rev. Julie serves on the Baltimore-Washington Annual Conference Advocacy and Action Network as the Immigration Task Force Chair, is ERT (Emergency Response Team) and UMVIM (United Methodist Volunteers in Mission) Leader trained and has a heart for mission and ministry near and far. Her most recent mission trip was a return to the island of Vieques in Puerto Rico to do recovery work two years after hurricanes Irma and Maria.
