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: God Never Ceases to Amaze Me!

Jon Wrightson Prayer Letter:  God Never Ceases to Amaze Me!Family

Another month has passed. It seems like the older we get, the faster time goes by. Our kids are doing well, and Annabelle is growing up so fast. Our oldest daughter started dating a fine young man who grew up in our church, and he shipped off this month to Marine Corps Boot Camp.

Soul Winning

I was in Jacksonville, North Carolina, for the third week of September, and I went back to the base to visit some of the young Marines and to invite a few more to ride the van to church. I met a young man named Troy from Arkansas, who brought 9 Marines with him the following Sunday! A few others I invited last month are still attending the services. God never ceases to amaze me! Troy has transferred to California and is already in touch with Pastor Christiansen, who pastors outside of Camp Pendleton. I would like to build a network of churches to give the young Marines when they get new orders, so they will always know a good church in their area. If you pastor a church or know of a church that you would recommend that is near a Marine base, please let me know as soon as possible. I think this would be greatly beneficial to the churches with Military Ministries.


September was rather slow, as we were finalizing a few things back home, and I took a week for vacation with the kids. The travel schedule is about to get crazy, as we will be in Maryland, Virginia, and Western North Carolina in October. Please pray for us, as I have decided to do more of the traveling without the family so they can stay caught up in school. They really struggled staying focused on the road. We will still travel some as a family, just not to every meeting.
