Lead Pastor

We are in a time of transition as regards the position of lead pastor. Dr. Jeremy Gates has retired after seven years of faithful service to our church and we are excited for what God has for the whole Gates family in the coming days. Join us in prayer as we seek God’s will for Wright Baptist Church. We believe God has a plan, and we want to use His!
