Rich Wilkerson Jr.’ Parents

Wilkerson is the son of Robyn and Rich Wilkerson Sr, the pastors of Trinity Church in Miami, which is affiliated with the Assemblies of God; Wilkerson Sr is a relative of David Wilkerson, the author of The Cross and the Switchblade.

Vous began as a young adult and youth ministry program within Trinity called The Rendezvous, which was later shortened to The Vous. It was spun out of Trinity in 2015.

Vous, like other youth-focused ministries before it, combines elements of contemporary popular culture.

Wilkerson presided at the wedding of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West in 2014; Kanye had been invited to a Vous service by Chris Julian, who co-owns LeBron James’ Miami boutique where Kanye bought and went to Trinity. Wilkerson and DawnCheré became household names as a result of the wedding’s media coverage. In 2015 and 2016, the Oxygen television network produced a reality show centered on the couple called “Rich In Faith,” which aired for ten episodes.

Wilkerson published Sandcastle Kings in 2015, which featured Kanye West’s artwork, and Friend of Sinners: Why Jesus Cares More About Relationship Than Perfection in 2018. He published his third book, Single and Secure, in 2022.
