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: Please Pray for a Church Building!

Jon Wrightson Prayer Letter: Please Pray for a Church Building!Family

Christmas greetings to you! We are all doing well. We did have a scare with Misty’s mother. She contracted COVID-19 at 77 years old. She also has COPD, so she was very, very sick for about four weeks. Misty and her sister have been taking turns staying with her, as she has been too ill to stay alone. But things are looking better, and we are seeing improvement. Jonathan and Daniel are both playing basketball and loving it. That keeps them very busy! Both of our daughters are in search of jobs, so life is always in transition.

Soul Winning

I had the opportunity to help a young man with the assurance of his salvation. I am amazed at how many Christians struggle with the assurance of their salvation. I thank God for a pastor who asked me to memorize I John 5:13 shortly after being saved. I know that I have eternal life!


We are hoping to learn something this month about the school building we have applied for. Please continue to pray that God opens that door or provides us with another building soon. I am afraid the hotel is going to clamp down with COVID rules in the near future. We have had a family visiting with us recently. I was able to lead the father to the Lord many years ago, and he and his wife and two children have been coming for four weeks now. Please pray for two individuals in our church who are taking chemotherapy treatments for cancer: Randy Doerr and Deliah Sitorious (seven years old).
