Growing up in a Marine Corps family, I often moved to new places.  But I considered Jacksonville, NC to be “where I grew up”.  At age 16, my family settled in Greensboro, NC.  As a 21 year old marine, lost, empty, and looking for purpose, I knew I needed to find God.  I stumbled into a place called Charity Baptist Church where I was saved in January of 1995.  Within a year, I had answered God’s call on my life to preach.  I also found my wife, Misty, there.  God has opened many doors for my family and me to serve Him.  I was the superintendent of Malachi Boys School, a home for troubled boys.  From there, I became an assistant pastor at Amazing Grace Baptist Church, under the leadership of Pastor Howard Owens.  God then lead us to pack up and head to Hyles-Anderson Bible College.

It was at Hyles-Anderson where I nailed down the location God would have us start a church…Jacksonville, NC, the home of Camp Lejeune Marine Corps Base.  I pastored Coastline Baptist Church for 13 wonderful years.  I thought I would die serving God in Jacksonville.  Once again, however, God had other plans for my family.  We have surrendered to go start as many churches as He will allow us on the island of Puerto Rico.  I can’t wait to see what God has in store for our future!

Jon and Misty Wrightson Prayer Letter:  Ministering to Military FamiliesFamily

Things are going well with the family. Everyone is healthy and looking forward to the warm weather. Thank you for your continued prayers and support for our family.

Soul Winning

I had the privilege of preaching at a Christian school in the area last month, and a young man in the third grade trusted Christ as his Saviour. While out soul winning in the Swansboro area, I met a gentleman who had moved here to care for his aging father. He served as a firefighter in New Jersey and now serves as a firefighter here in our area. Victor trusted Christ as His Saviour. The young man who got saved a few weeks back has been meeting with me on Thursday evenings for discipleship. There is nothing quite like answering the questions of a young Christian.

Ministry

The new building has truly been a godsend. We are perfectly located in the middle of many good-sized neighborhoods full of young military families looking for hope and guidance. I love serving in an area where I can reach our military families; they sacrifice so much for our freedoms. I hope you had a wonderful Memorial Day and found a way to honor those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom to preach the Word of God.
