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: Emergency Appendectomy

Jon Wrightson Prayer Letter:  Emergency AppendectomyFamily

August has been an eventful month, to say the least. The biggest unpleasant surprise was that Misty had to have an emergency appendectomy. We are so thankful to have an out-of-state friend who is a surgeon. He encouraged her to head to the emergency room after an urgent-care doctor sent her home, but she has healed very well. God was very good to us!

Soul Winning

Wow! With the appendectomy, we were able to be back in Jacksonville, attending Coastline Baptist Church. I have been excited to visit on Camp Lejeune and invite young marines to church when I am in town. Four young men have been attending the last few weeks. Oh, how I miss the Military Ministry at Coastline Baptist!

A dear young family, who used to attend Coastline, has recently faced the horror of their seven-year-old daughter being diagnosed with a rare brain cancer. She has had two surgeries so far. They have been heavy on my heart this month. Please pray for the Sitorious family.


We were able to be with Pastor Johnston in Morehead City, North Carolina, this month. They are a great group of folks, and Pastor Johnston is such a great friend. Please pray for his family if God brings them to mind. His nine-year-old grandson Landen has been very sick. He has been diagnosed with a very rare dwarfism disease and has been in the hospital for months.
