Two Key Passages

"For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith for faith, as it is written, the righteous shall live by faith. (Romans 1:16-17)

"All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)

The Man


It all began in 1978 when Dr. Michael Wright formed and was the lead singer of a Christian band. Two years later, he served as an associate and lead pastor from 1980-2018 in Colorado, Florida, and Texas. While serving as a pastor, from 1992-1995, Michael also was a National Bible Instructor for an international ministry based in Atlanta, Georgia. Dr. Wright presented Old and New Testament seminars in local churches, regional and state conferences, and retreats from coast to coast. As a National Leadership Trainer for the same ministry, Michael spoke to thousands of leaders young and old in over 50 settings annually.

Ministry Entrepreneur

In the fall of 2018, Dr. Wright took early retirement, but did not take a vacation. Instead, he launched an encore ministry as a writer, speaker, podcaster, and supply preacher. Dr. Wright publishes a blog and podcast called Gospel in Real Life, an exegetical Bible teaching and equipping ministry.
