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: East Coast Baptist Church Is Doing Well

Jon Wrightson Prayer Letter: East Coast Baptist Church Is Doing WellFamily

I am thankful to report that the Wrightson family is doing well. Thank you for your prayers! It has been a pleasant but CRAZY transition from deputation to starting East Coast Baptist Church. It was one of the most difficult decisions of my life, but I know it was of God. I am sorry if this transition took you by surprise, and I understand if you felt the need to stop sending support. Thank you for your continued prayers though.

Soul Winning

We have had the opportunity to knock on many doors and share God’s love with folks in the area. With the COVID-19 rules in place, we have been a little limited, but God has opened doors. Last week I met with a man who has a ministry to the Marines and Sailors on Camp Lejeune. It looks like I might have the opportunity to preach on base twice a month. Please pray that the Lord opens this door.


East Coast Baptist Church is doing well. We have been averaging 28 since we started the church back in July. God has brought us some true servants to work alongside us as we endeavor to build a new church for our Saviour. We are still meeting in the Hampton Inn conference room, which is going well, but we would love to find a more permanent building. Please pray that we are able to find a building soon, as we are limited in our service times.
We will be traveling to West Virginia for a Missions Conference at the end of October. We are excited about being with Pastor Bane and the dear people of Shenandoah Bible Baptist Church.
