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 Wrightson Prayer Letter: Moving Right Along

Jon Wrightson Prayer Letter: Moving Right AlongFamily

Things are going well with the family. Kayla and Susanna have started working full-time and adjusting to adulthood. Jonathan and Daniel are going to a Christian school, and they are both super excited about having made their basketball teams. Annabelle is even cuter and more precious than ever. She has us laughing every day! I highly recommend having a baby at 45 years of age; it makes me feel 20 years younger. Ha! Ha!

Soul Winning

I was privileged to preach in a Christian school last month, and a second grader trusted Christ as his Saviour. His teacher later told me that he was so excited about it that he wanted to tell his mother right away.


East Coast Baptist Church is moving right along. We have put in an application to the school board and hope to be able to rent a public school facility, starting in December. We are still meeting in the hotel conference room, and it has been good, but I feel like a school would make visitors feel a little more welcomed. We attended a wonderful Missions Conference in West Virginia at the Shenandoah Bible Baptist Church. Open Door Baptist Church in Mesquite, Texas, donated money for us to buy a portable digital piano, which is a huge blessing. We cannot wait to pick one out and use it for God’s glory.
