Pastor John Wright

John Wright, ThM.

Senior Teaching Pastor

Pastor John Wright is married to his beautiful wife Kimberly and has 5 young children.

Since the age of 12, John felt God moving in his heart and calling him to pastoral ministry. Since that initial call, John faithfully began volunteering and serving in different aspects of teaching ministry as a youth and young adult. He received his Bachelor’s degree from the Master’s University and spent several years as a junior-high and high-school mathematics teacher all the while saving up to be able to pay for graduate training in Theology. While a teacher, John met Kimberly and after a 2 year courtship - married and moved cross-country to Texas to attend Dallas Theological Seminary. After 4 years of full time study at DTS, John graduated with a Master’s of Theology (ThM.) and entered into the pastoral field full-time.

After serving as an Associate Pastor for a number of years in Northern California - in 2016, John felt the call to move his family from California to Michigan to become the Senior Teaching Pastor here at First Baptist Church of Eaton Rapids where we as a church have been blessed to grow under his leadership and teaching and are excited by how God continues to guide him in leading our church into the future.
