About Wes

Wes and his siblings grew up as PKs (Preacher’s Kids). His father, Rev. A.W. Wellborn Sr., pastored small, rural churches in West Texas until his death in 1973. This series of articles are stories from his childhood years in the parsonage and his adult years when he followed his father’s footsteps and became a pastor himself.  After more than 20 years in full-time vocational ministry, he transitioned to a career in higher education.

Wes currently works as an instructor with Temple College in Temple, Texas.  He earned B.A., M.Ed., and M.A. degrees from Wayland Baptist University and an Ed.D.  from the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor.  He has researched renewal in rural churches, higher education trends, and developmental education, including student support and retention, both nationally and abroad.

Wes has three children, who are all active in ministry, and three grandchildren.  He plays guitar, bass, and occasionally banjo, and he collects coffee mugs and letter openers. He most enjoys being a fan of all things Texas, and traveling on his motorcycle.
