Willie Wright like many young boys had “hoop dreams!” He slept, eat, and drank basketball. Those dreams were quickly dashed, and God replaced them with His dreams and plan for his life.
Today, he is the pastor of the Capital City Church in Albany, New York and president of Prophecy Plus. He hosts a weekly livestream Bible study and devotional on Facebook and YouTube, and Tumblr.
His basketball dreams didn’t amount to much, so he decided to pursue a Computer Programming at the end of his senior year in high school.
As he was pursuing a new path, Another was pursuing him. Willie wasn’t a Christian, but always was interested in “salvation” as taught by his grandmother. At the time, lonely for companionship, God answered the longing of his heart in two ways. In answer to a prayer, God introduced him the next day to a Christian young women, who eventually became his wife. She in turn introduced him to Jesus.
Today, Pastor Willie Wright is an energetic speaker with exceptional ability to communicate not only to church-oriented people but also to those who aren’t religious. His spontaneous, down-to-earth approach to living the Christian life engages and brings hope and meaning to hearts from every kind of background.
