(March 24, 1948 - September 14, 2011)
We celebrate the life and legacy of our late Pastor, Reverend Joseph R. Wright and his unwavering stand on the Word of God. Pastor Wright impacted life through his love of the Word and had a gift of reaching people regardless of position or condition. We give God glory for his obedience to the vision given by the Lord for the church, as he would often say “It’s Not About Us” quoting Gal 2:20 I am crucified with Christ nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ lives in me:” Our death for Christ’s life.
Pastor Wright had a special love for the youth and the seniors and held them near to his heart. He imparted a lifelong theme in our youth by reminding them to “Know Who You Are in Christ” I Peter 2:9. It’s this labor of love that we can stand and rejoice on the awesome impact of love Pastor Wright had on our lives and the steadfast love he had on everyone he came into contact with.
