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: New Meeting Place

Jon Wrightson Prayer Letter: New Meeting PlaceFamily

Thank you for your continued prayers for Misty’s mom; she is completely healed and back to normal. Our family is doing well and looking forward to the summer. Our three oldest are excited to have all gotten jobs at our favorite ice cream/gift shop.

Soul Winning

The Lord has opened some doors to witness to some folks at a local business. One of the young men and his fiancé (Evan and Chantel) visited East Coast Baptist Church on Easter Sunday. I was privileged to lead Evan to the Lord and have a great conversation with him afterward. God is so good! An older gentleman I work with has been very open to the Gospel, but he is confused because of the way he was raised. Please pray for Tim to be saved.


The ministry is doing well. We were able to secure the parks and recreation building recently and started holding meetings there on Easter Sunday. This is a huge answer to prayer. The hotel worked well and had beautiful facilities; but they enforced the mask mandate, and it wasn’t very inviting for visitors with all the foot traffic. Our new location has a huge park, tennis courts, a game room, basketball courts, and walking trails. We also have the entire building to ourselves on Sunday. It is a pretty perfect situation.
